Honorable Officials of China:
I urge you to make enforceable animal protection laws a priority before the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Please do not let China's notoriously inhumane bear bile farms and live animal markets tarnish your image during the Games.
In particular, I implore you to immediately enact laws to ban China's dog/cat fur trade.
Like many potential tourists, I cannot support a country that condones animal abuse. Neither revenue nor tradition justifies the profoundly cruel Chinese dog and cat fur trade.
UNACCEPTABLE: Up to 8,000 caged dogs and cats are stacked into a single truck for cross-country transport without food or water. At an animal market in Southern China, investigators documented 20 cats smashed inside one wire cage and dead cats draped over cages. I've seen the video footage with my own eyes: Live dogs and cats flattened inside cages the size of filing drawers are tossed from truck beds on to hard pavement. Animals scream as their paws are crushed. Workers pull them out with long metal tongs and fling them over a 7 ft. fence. Some of these cats and dogs still wear collars and ID tags, indicating they are stolen companion animals.
UNCONSCIONABLE: Chinese fur markets violently bludgeon, hang, electrocute and strangle fur-bearing animals, including millions of cats and dogs. Cats are choked in their cages alongside live cats. Dogs are hung from wire nooses and slashed across the groin. At fur farms in Hebei Province, investigators videotaped workers carving off skin and fur from alert dogs, foxes and other animals. Some fully skinned animals continued to blink and breathe spasmodically as their hearts beat for another five to 10 minutes.
DECEITFUL: Dog/cat items are deceptively labeled Gae-wolf, Sobaki, Asian Jackal, Wildcat, Goyangi, Katzenfelle, or other names before exported abroad
Unsuspecting shoppers purchase unmarked, dyed or vaguely labeled boots, coats, linings, toys and homeopathic remedies.
I will not visit a country that brutalizes animals to decorate a sweater, line a coat or become a trinket. This is the ultimate betrayal of creatures who are instinctively trustworthy and devoted companions to people.
I stand firm in my boycott of Chinese tourism, commerce and the 2008 Olympic Games--unless China makes visible strides to end the vicious treatment of dogs, cats, bears and other non-human beings. Thank you for accepting my comments on this matter of international concern.
