PETA Exposes Horrible Practice of Reptile Skinning

The skins are being used for handbags and other products.

This link has a horrible photo and a worse video. Just warning you...

It takes place in Indonesia.

Ana,

Of all the acts of cruelty which you've reported on here over the time in which I've read your blog, I would have to say that this is one of the cruelest practices I've read about yet.

I certainly hope that they don't skin them alive in Australia like the article says. It is completely unacceptable anywhere, but I certainly hope that that kind of thing would not happen in my home country. That said, human nature being what it is, nothing would surprise me.
