ADAM SMITH: ‘Badgers are being turned into shaving and paint brushes in China after being skinned for their fur, animal rights charity PETA has revealed. European badgers found in China are being captured unlawfully and their fur used to manufacture makeup, paint and shaving brushes inside sweatshops, it has been claimed. PETA members visited badger farms and videoed distressed animals running back and forth inside their cages at large-scale breeding facilities. The footage shows an employee bludgeoning badgers to death with the leg of a wooden chair before the animals were taken to be skinned.
Another badger inside a cage was missing one of its front paws, with a farm worker claiming it had been ‘chewed off’ by another badger during a fight… After the badgers are removed from their tiny confines to be killed and skinned, their fur is sent off to sweatshops where middle-aged and elderly villagers, who earn £3 a day, turn them into brushes. According to the animal rights group, these brushes are then sold online and in stores. PETA says one way to stop the badger-brush industry is by getting consumers to buy synthetic products’. SOURCE…
