You may never buy leather again after watching this video.

 

A deeply disturbing PETA Asia undercover investigation reveals that dogs are bludgeoned and killed so that their skin can be turned into leather gloves, belts, jacket collar trim, cat toys and other items. At the slaughterhouse, the investigator filmed workers as they grabbed one dog after another around the neck with metal pinchers and bashed them over the head with a wooden pole. Some dogs fell unconscious, while others cried out and writhed in agony. Some still struggled to breathe after their throats were cut. Finally, their skins were ripped off their bodies. Dogs who were next in line for slaughter wailed and barked as a worker hit them while leading them to the killing floor. One employee told the investigator that this facility bludgeons and skins 100 to 200 dogs a day. When this video was shot, there were about 300 live dogs in the compound slated for slaughter.

 

Most of the world's leather comes from China, where there are no penalties for abusing animals killed for their skins. 
Products made from dog leather are exported throughout the world and sold to unsuspecting customers. So if you buy leather, remember: There's no easy way to tell whose skin you're really in.

Pledge Never to Wear Leather!
After learning that dogs are cruelly bludgeoned and their skins turned into leather gloves, belts, jacket collar trim, cat toys and other items, I pledge to buy only cruelty-free clothing and to avoid leather! By signing this pledge, I'm saying that the only skin you'll find me in is my own.
