This is barbaric- any animal lover, or for that matter even if you don't love or even like dogs if you have a soul or conscious should feel this way regarding the treatment of these beautiful animals. These animals-a cross between a dog and a fox indigenous to Asia are beaten, tortured and SKINNED ALIVE FOR THEIR FUR for garments.
