The Null Device
They look so peaceful, don't they?
A NBC investigative reporter has found out that an alarmingly high proportion
of the toy cat figurines sold in the US are made from
real cat fur
Various Chinese factories slaughter cats and dogs and use the fur
to make those cute stuffed toys you see in shops; though sometimes this is
intentionally mislabelled as rabbit fur as not to upset consumer sensitivities.
`What you're actually looking at there is what was a cat, killed in the most
inhumane manner you can imagine, so that the fur could be glued to this
plastic figurine. It's grotesque.'
