  • Skinning animals alive is a rare event, whit most animals skinned it represents an undesirable risk for the individual doing the skinning.
  • Some animals used for meat and fur produce higher quality meat if they are bled to death and a stunning blow is delivered to enable the animal to be bled out it our struggle that would hurt the handler or the meat, this bleeding step can be combined with the skinning but that practice has faller out of favor because it bloodies the pelt.
  • Strictly speaking animals never need to be skinned; In the developed world a variety of alternative to animal furs exist (though this answer does not answer the question)
  • Individuals with strong stomachs can search for "Chinese fur trade video" in any search engine and find a video of a Chinese fur farm skinning live animals, purportedly the reason is that it is faster and or easier to skin them alive, it is unclear that this is true.
  • Human animal abuse for the sake of animal abuse is common enough to explain the majority of these cases.

Does animal die when their fur is taken for fur coats?

Animals suffer a lot.Millions of cats, dogs, foxes, raccoons, and other animals go through pain each day. You can search YouTube on a video of the process of skinning an animal (Warning: Extremely graphic).Please, think about this before you buy any fur products. The animals will thank you.Animals used for fur suffer more than you would imagine. There are many ways to obtain fur, the main ways being fur farms, trapping and the Chinese. I separate the Chinese because in the streets of China many homeless dogs and cats are taken (even some out of yards) and then skinned alive. Fur farms and trappers at LEAST try to kill them ahead of time although that effort is not always successful.
