some animals can live up to 10 minutes after being skinned alive and tossed on a pile of other carcases…
Have you ever actually skinned an animal? Because I have and I can tell you it’s damn hard enough to do it while the animal is dead, it would be impossible to do it properly while the animal is still alive.
That video you refer to is staged. The people in the video were PAID to skin those animals alive for the camera and in 2009 a court convicted the filmmakers of paying people to perform acts of cruelty. Animals are never skinned alive for their fur. It’s a myth made up by AR groups to push their agenda. Sadly this is a common tactic used by animal rights groups. A lot of those videos you see from groups like PETA are actually fake, staged or edited to give a false impression of what is really happening and these groups hold many convictions for staging such films (but of cause they wont tell you that!)
Even just a quick examination of the video will show it’s not common practice. A live animal bleeds as the heart pumps the blood around, but a dead animal when skinned would produce little to no blood. Look at the carcasses under the live raccoon dog. Notice how they’re not covered in fresh blood like the live animal? That shows that they were all skinned after death.
Skinning a live animal would be impossible to do without damaging the pelt, (causing rips, holes, blood staining etc.) thus making the pelt completely worthless. Even the smallest hole can make a pelt loose most of it’s value, so why on earth would a farmer destroy his own product and cut all his profits by doing that? Think about it. The stress of the process would also cause the animal to shed large amounts of hair (this ruining the pelt even further), as well as putting the skinner as serious risk of injury. There are zero reasons to skin an animal while it’s still alive and it simply is not practiced.
Don’t be so quick to believe everything you see.
