Crocodiles Cut Open, Skinned in Vietnam for Leather Bags


PETA has exposed suffering on reptile farms in the US and Africa, and now eyewitness footage reveals the horrifying reality for tens of thousands of crocodiles in Vietnam raised and violently killed to make “luxury” leather bags sold around the world. Two of the farms investigated supply crocodile skins to Louis Vuitton’s parent company, LVMH, and “some of the biggest brands”, according to a farm owner.

Necks Cut Open and Rods Rammed Down Spines While Alive
Workers electroshocked crocodiles then attempted to kill them by cutting into their necks and ramming metal rods down their spines.

PETA and PETA US have exposed cruelty at reptile farms on three continents, and the story is always the same: grim, close confinement and a violent death. Before buying items made out of exotic skins like these, please stop and think of the animals they come from and their intense suffering. Don’t support this cruelty with your purchases.

Do more: urge LVMH to shed exotic skins from Louis Vuitton and all of its other brands.
