Switzerland’s cat-skin-fur trade was so out of control that laws were passed in 2013 to try and curb the sale of cat fur. It is falsely believed that cat-skin-fur cures rheumatism, even though there is no scientific proof to back up these claims.
Prior to 2013, it is believed that astronomical numbers of cats were brutally slaughtered for their pelts. A Swiss television crew filmed an undercover documentary on the cat-skin-fur trade and filmed cat butchers admitting that they ‘cook the [cat] leftovers to eat.”
Cat butchers said they prefer cats to be 6 years old, with a full thick pelt. They brutally strangle the cats because its less damaging to the fur pelt. Cat butchers described their method of slaughter: they sling a noose around the cat’s neck and hang the cat from a beam until it stops thrashing, then immediately peel it’s skin off – even if the cat is still alive.
Switzerland need to enforce their laws and stamp out the cat-skin-fur trade because not enforcing the law has accelerated prices for cat-skin-fur blankets.
In 1993 the Swiss parliament rejected changing laws to protect dogs and cats against human consumption. The Swiss Veterinary Office sided with Swiss dog meat butchers, justifying the practice of eating dogs and cats. The Veterinary Office falsely stated that countries use specially bred dog s for meat purposes, which is a fraudulent myth.
When you travel to Switzerland as a tourist and admire the beautiful wooden barns nestled in the mountains, you may well be driving past a dog meat farm!
Having seen Switzerland’s fur-skin trade with my own eyes, and the large barns where dogs and cat are kept, I have a very strong interest in what is happening to Switzerland’s animals and will continue monitor the situation.
