For Immediate Release:
December 30, 2014
Real fur mislabeled as faux is not a new problem, nor is the mislabeling unique to fur. In PETA Asia’s recent investigation of leather production in China, it was found that dogs were beaten and skinned alive so that their skins could be turned into leather gloves and other accessories. Many dog-leather products are mislabeled as lambskin and sold all over the world. Regardless of whether it’s the skin or fur of a dog, a sheep, a rabbit, or a raccoon, if it came from an animal, it’s the product of intense suffering, and PETA recommends that, when in doubt, shoppers never take a chance and instead leave the item on the rack.
