Raccoon Dogs Skinned In Order To Make Fake Ugg Boots

In a continuation of yesterday's Ugg horror, here's something more disturbing. The Sun has found a video of raccoon dogs being made into fake Ugg boots in China. While the real deal is made with sheepskin, the fake ones use the hide from Asian raccoon dogs, which are bred and raised in pretty horrible conditions, and then skinned alive. The process is wildly disturbing—only click if you're ready to be completely outraged. (The Sun via Racked)
