Please join members of In Defense of Animals for a demonstration to protest the cruel treatment of minks, raccoons and foxes raised on Chinese fur farms and killed for their pelts. A recent investigation of fur farms in China - where 80% of the world's fur comes from - exposed horrific cruelty in a country where there are NO animal welfare laws. Investigators found workers attempting to stun animals by repeatedly slamming them against the ground or bashing their heads with clubs. Such unreliable methods left many animals fully conscious, visibly blinking and breathing for as long as ten minutes after their fur was stripped from their bodies
