Rabbit bag chains sold in Singapore made of real fur: SPCA
« on: July 27, 2016, 07:18:50 pm »
Rabbit-shaped bag charms that have been gaining popularity in Singapore are made of real fur, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said.

In a Facebook post on Monday (Jul 25), SPCA detailed the results of its in-house tests on the "rabbit bag chains" and concluded that the fur was authentic based on its feel, its look and smell after it is burnt, and a microscopic examination.

SPCA's executive director Jaipal Singh Gill told Channel NewsAsia the tests have “strongly suggested” that the product is made of real animal fur. “We are, however, unable to determine the species of animal from which the fur came from,” he said.

i've watched a video showing how they pull the fur off screaming restrained angora rabbits. i don't think those poor furballs are farmed for both fur and food, just fur.
so they go through the pain of having their fur yanked out roughly over and over again until they eventually die.  :'( :'( :'(

A retail assistant at another shop said: "The supplier told me the rabbits were shaved, so there is no harm involved.

"Why are we making such a big fuss about it? They're just rabbits."

Another retailer said there should be no shame in buying such products: "My supplier promised me that these are real. But there is no issue since other people also sell cow and crocodile hides - it's in no way unethical."


I think this pretty much sums it all up.
