Giving the fur trade a bad name

I recently came across this video on another site. Probably the most graphic video I've ever seen. This is what gives hunters and trappers a bad name, we get lumped in with people like this. I also wondered how much this really happens.
Warning: This video is very graphic

The PETA folks always try to find the most graphic videos they can for shock value.

I trapped quite a bit when I was younger. All animals were dispatched quickly and humanely. Everyone I know that trapped or has trapped has done the same. A daily trap check was always done as well.

I don't think this happens as much as the PETA goobers would have everyone believe.

I wondered if this was something that really only happened when peta cameras were around, I was pretty sure it wasn't happening around here, and all the other hunters and trappers I know would do anything like that at all.

Sad video. Very intense fire power. I can understand why certain organizations would want to fight hard to stop those types of operations. What's wrong is when they use it as fuel to attack traditional practices that are already regulated heavily, and are not carried out in such cruel or gruesome manners.

The video made me sick.

Did you listen closely to the voices? Its definitely not English, French or Spanish. So this video was not shot anywhere in North America. Did a bit of digging and found that this footage was shot in China.

Its disgusting that PETA would roam the world searching for this type of disgusting footage and use it here against us.

I wouldn't put it past PETA to use their own members or hire and stage their gruesome films and clips. In the name of, getting their point across.

I agree. Hopefully some year, the truth will come out and PETA will be found out.

Pretty ugly but then I could shoot videos in a french fry factory that would make you quit eating them. Same for grape juice. There are areas in food processing plants that you can't get into. Ever been in the kill room of a slaughter house? I have, you'd be appalled!

Pretty easy for Peta to come up with stuff like this. I think tho, that the ones most appalled are you and I. We are much more apt to watch this stuff than ma and pa public. Ma and pa find if disgusting and turn it off. I don't think they are deceived that death is a beautiful nor that we live the life we do without it.

If the general public really cared, hunting would have been stopped long ago. We out number Peta and fight among ourselves, the general public out numbers both of us and thinks its all childish!

Regarding fighting among ourselves, see threads on long range hunting and high fences. In the end, what we should be concerned with is a humane death.

I noticed a couple of things. Like Cowgirl they didn't speak English. They also made a point not to show any back ground that could identify a location or faces to identify race. I doubt the crustiest trapper in this country could do what these scum bags were doing.

If this did come out of China maybe we should think about it the next time we buy made in china. Might be a good idea to let some of our Politicians who think China is such a great trading partner watch it.

There may be a lot of reasons not to buy from China. That video isn't one of them. It has done what it was designed to do. Outrage some people.
