Terrible. but they seem to have vaccines from other countries that work...and they attribute the spread of disease due to warmer weather.

Angora harvesting is horrible, no matter how "humanely" is done

Why do you say that when they obviously aren't feeling any pain?

Maybe it has something to do with this:

Quote:In 2013 several clothing retailers suspended the sourcing of products containing angora wool after video evidence surfaced of live rabbits with their paws tied being plucked raw in Chinese fur farms. Major retailers that banned angora products in response to welfare concerns include Gap Inc., Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, H&M and Esprit.

Well, of course that is cruelty, but it has nothing to do with the harvesting method I posted via videos, which is to brush the first coat (no longer attached) from their new coat.

If people have objections they should explain in detail as to what exactly those objections are, not just put out blanket statements,

Don't buy cheap angora products from China.

Angora bunnies need to be brushed regularly anyway so I don't see why you couldn't make yarn out of it.

But commercial angora I'm sure is produced very differently.

Exactly, the same could be done for long hair cats and dogs that need brushing daily.

They are completely stressed out by the procedure. They can have heart attacks strokes, and just die.
Any other bunny advocate can confirm to this. They shouldn't be submerged in water or kept on their backs for any length of time.
Moronic Facebook videos of bunnies in water, on wheels, or bring humanely sheared, are completely misleading.
I've done bunny rescue for years. We are a fanatical bunch

I commend you and your bunch for your humanitarian efforts and letting us know, but the videos I posted don't include those harvesting practices. I also did not appreciate your hit and run comment without explanation.

I had no idea KB was like the SATs, and I had to do the essay portion as well.
Both those harvesting vids show the buns in agitated states. They are not enjoying what's going on.
It's not as cruel as the tieing them down shearing methods, but bunny people frown upon Angora, across the board.
You want the full house rabbit society diatribe too. .
My handle here used to be, BUNNEH if memory serves, and most ppl know I keep and do bunny rescue. Post a bunny thread, I'm going to comment if something is untoward,and people need to know the facts.
Oh and, I can bring other bunny peeps by. I'm mild compared to most. Really .


The bunnies in the vids do not look stressed or in pain at all, in fact they behave the same way my cat does when I brush her. So, you can tell an agitated bunny and everyone else can't, is that your fact?

Asking for an explanation was not unreasonable. esp. when you are negatively criticizing a post. It' called 'can't read your mind'.

Well I won't be buying any angora ever...

Our puppy have that kind of fur they say 'needs to be plucked', but since he clearly doesn't appreciated I got a trimmer to groom his fur.
