Do you know where the fur trim on your jacket comes from? Unbeknownst to most, the majority of fur-trimmed clothing and accessories (even trinkets and pet toys) labeled as "faux fur" or "synthetic" is likely real fur, mostly from cats and dogs. It is estimated that over two million domestic cats and dogs (the majority stolen pets and homeless strays) are killed in China every year for their fur, which is exported under false labeling to North America and Europe. There are no governing laws to protect animals, resulting in agonizing torment and death for these defenseless animals.
This largely unknown animal protection issue will be exposed in the groundbreaking film, "Cry of the Innocent: The Voices That Can't Speak" and brought into the international spotlight, with its center on the fur trade as a paradigm of a society in a perpetual state of disconnect.
Through the Director's strategic partnership with ACTAsia for Animals, the film's recent trailer focusing on the cat and dog fur trade, has made great strides throughout Asia with precedent-setting media coverage in China, the mecca of the fur farming industry. The trailer (below) was screened at a press conference in Shenzhen, China, attended by the national media, and has already had a tremendous influence, with precedent-setting TV news coverage of the cat and dog fur trade at its epicenter, showing clips from the new movie trailer.
