14 Things the Leather Industry Doesn’t Want You to See

The Monsters Among Us

From PETA

2. If you’re wearing leather, it probably came from China or India.

In China, there are no penalties for abusing animals on farms.

3. Along with cattle, other animals—including sheep, dogs, and cats—are killed for their skin in China.

Cats Thrown from Truck

4. In India animals fare no better.
