"Trapped" Activists Ask Seoul Shoppers to Get a Feel for Fur
Fur Belongs to Animal: Says Activits "Dripping in Blood"
Wearing fur coats covered in "blood" and sprawled on the street in a giant steel-jaw trap, three members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia-Pacific protested next to a banner that reads, "Animals Suffer in Traps. This is Fur," in front of Jindo fur store in downtown Seoul on Friday.

PETA wants consumers to know that animals who are trapped for fur suffer excruciating pain before trappers kill them by stomping on their chests or breaking their necks. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives in tiny, filthy cages, only to be killed with poison, gas, or anal electrocution. In China, now the world's leading fur exporter, animals — including cats and dogs — are sometimes skinned alive.

"The true feel of fur is pain and death," said PETA Asia - Pacific's Kyung-Dam Park. "With so many warm and fashionable alternatives available, there's simply no excuse to wear fur."
