Why Are These Rabbits Screaming?

Because their fur is being ripped out while they're conscious and struggling.

Why? To be used in angora sweaters and accessories.

Undercover footage shot by PETA Asia found workers who were violently ripping the fur from the rabbits' sensitive skin as they screamed at the top of their lungs in pain.

After this terrifying and barbaric ordeal, which the rabbits endure every three months, many of them appeared to go into severe shock. After two to five years, those who have survived are hung upside down, their throats are slit, and their carcasses are sold. 

Rabbits who have their fur cut or sheared also suffer: During the cutting process, their front and back legs are tightly tethered―a terrifying experience for any prey animal―and the sharp cutting tools inevitably wound them as they struggle desperately to escape.

Ninety percent of angora wool comes from China, where there are no penalties for the abuse of animals on farms and no standards to regulate the treatment of the animals. When you buy a sweater, hat, or other product that contains angora, the angora wool most likely originated in China, even if the finished product was assembled elsewhere. 

How You Can Help Rabbits
