    I guess I won't take a look after all.

    The authenticity of this video is a bit questionable to me as well. however i believe someone workign with the fur trade could have filmed it. (just like how one person filmed himself stealing things from cars or how this one guy just randomly hit a guy with a skateboard...then posted on the internet) Although skinning animals and hitting guy with skateboard in two different levels of crime in my opinion.

    Can you evaluate? Do you mean PETA might have skinned them...in order to use it as propaganda...? I do not believe that PETA would go that far to send a message. However, I do have my doubts.

    Well, I live in California, and PETA is pretty rampant here. I think they may be trying to kill two birds with one stone (haha, irony) here: stop fur trade and shed bad light on China.

    Why wouldnt they let them? Whos to say it isnt the trappers themselves doing the taping? I mean ppl will tape anything, and the trappers do this for a living, so if someone wanted to tape it they might not think of it as something negative, since this is their way of life.

    Also how could they stop them? Lets say the government didnt like it but the trappers didnt mind(which is probably what would happen if anyone cared), how would they stop them? How would they even know its being taped? I mean the internet i all over the world and those trappers didnt seem to have any technology so its not like this is some sort of big operation, rpobably a family trade. Hell the trappers might have even liked the thought of being video taped, so they probably wouldnt say anything to the government.

    What Im trying to say is it probably wasnt a "sneak recording" but something th trappers where aware of and the government wasnt, you cant stop all things from getting on the internet.

    may this be a propaganda or not...

    the message is clear...


    cruelty to animals is wrong...

    it happens anywhere.. all races may commit this.

    and it should stop.

    to Mojo:
    I might have to disagree with the statement that PETA might be trying to 'shed bad light on China'. Simply because only those ignorant and shallow would see the video and say "China is bad etc etc etc" Perhaps I am wrong. With so many things happening today nothing is impossible...

    TwistedFaith good point.

    PS: The girl in your signature is beautiful Mojo. hahaha

    I highly doubt PETA went and staged this. They may feel strongly about their cause, but with reason. I seriously don't think the skinners give a damn about someone videotaping them. Maybe PETA is protesting this sort of thing, but I doubt their industry is in any kind of jeopardy. So, I doubt they'd be on the alert for the PETA.

    I saw this video when I was about 14. I'm fairly certain of it now.

    I honestly don't know what to think.
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.

    Watch Penn & Teller's "Bullsh*t!" program on showtime as they give you all the information you need to realize that PETA staging this video is completely plausible.

    Look, I can formulate my opinions just fine on my own. Give me a reason why PETA should go out of its way to make a video of themselves skinning animals alive to propagate a lie about China. Do they hate China so? And for what reason, if they aren't actually participating in animal cruelty?
