Here it is embeded..
Thats just cruel..
I dont know why they would not at least smash the head of the animal with a big stick before skinning them..
On another note,
I was in Guangzhou Ching Ping market a few years ago, I think it was the beginning of the 80's or end of 70s.
n this particular market they sell all and every animals available or have bad luck enough to be caught by the seller..
There are bugs, snails, dogs, cats, snakes, scorpions, roaches.. you name it.
The floor of the market were red mud, mixed of blood, guts and shit..
They do not have fridges back then..(even now fridges are rare there).
Now if you fancy say, a leg of a dog for your dinner, you know that you cant eat a whole dog, and coz you dont have a fridge, you would buy only the part you need..
The seller also do not have fridges.. so, to keep the meat fresh, you got to keep the animal alive.
They would slice out the leg you fancy, while the animal is alive! and then cauterize the wound by searing it with a hot pan..
Clouds of blood with nauseating smell billows amid the howl of the animal and the laughter of the seller and buyer..
Doing it this way, they could keep an animal alive for at least a week while loping their body parts a piece at a time.
I ended up running out of the market, vomited my gut out..
I know this is also cruel, but it is a necessity due to economy..

If PETA stuck at working to stop diabolical mistreatment like this, then they would have my support.
Trouble is: They're a bunch of crazed inadequates who see renaming fish as "sea kittens" to be equally important.
The UK's RSPCA is heading in the same direction.

Wow I don't think anybodyts made it through yet, not even me(I stopped at the skinning part). You know I can shoot animals and if they're not dead shoot them again. But this.........this is really bad.

Most of the places in this country use gas (CO2) to kill the animals before skinning. It is one of the most humane ways to kill an animal - the other way is freezing... not as quick but it also is humane.

So and So's pages on the internet = NOT reliable loading data
Always check data against manuals
NEVER exceed maximum listed loads

I'm going to have to call bullshit on the video. That's not how it's done. I had a trap line as a youth. The first few seconds of the video show how it's done with a stick. You hit the animal just behind the skull causing a hangman's fracture of the neck and spinal cord. Death is quick. You DO NOT want to be skinning a live animal. It would be too easy to be scratched or bitten. A professional would know how to do this better and quicker than a kid with a trap line. I caught mostly nutria, but occasionally muskrat or raccoon near Cameron Louisiana.
edit - I watched the video again to pick it apart further. This skinner is not a professional. A pro would have the animal skinned in about a third of the time that he took. A pro would have a razor sharp knife and not have to saw with it to make a cut. There is no worktable or tubs nearby to place the skins or the carcass in afterward. Also, you would not kill only one animal at a time. Iit is like reloading, you don't reload only one at a time you do them in batches. It is production line work, there would be one person to kill the animals and another to skin them.
PETA probably paid someone to do that to an animal so they could get the video. Makes you realize that they will lie to get what they want (like we already didn't know that!!).
