some animals can live up to 10 minutes after being skinned alive and tossed on a pile of other carcases…
Have you ever actually skinned an animal? Because I have and I can tell you it’s damn hard enough to do it while the animal is dead, it would be impossible to do it properly while the animal is still alive.
That video you refer to is staged. The people in the video were PAID to skin those animals alive for the camera and in 2009 a court convicted the filmmakers of paying people to perform acts of cruelty. Animals are never skinned alive for their fur. It’s a myth made up by AR groups to push their agenda. Sadly this is a common tactic used by animal rights groups. A lot of those videos you see from groups like PETA are actually fake, staged or edited to give a false impression of what is really happening and these groups hold many convictions for staging such films (but of cause they wont tell you that!)
Even just a quick examination of the video will show it’s not common practice. A live animal bleeds as the heart pumps the blood around, but a dead animal when skinned would produce little to no blood. Look at the carcasses under the live raccoon dog. Notice how they’re not covered in fresh blood like the live animal? That shows that they were all skinned after death.
Skinning a live animal would be impossible to do without damaging the pelt, (causing rips, holes, blood staining etc.) thus making the pelt completely worthless. Even the smallest hole can make a pelt loose most of it’s value, so why on earth would a farmer destroy his own product and cut all his profits by doing that? Think about it. The stress of the process would also cause the animal to shed large amounts of hair (this ruining the pelt even further), as well as putting the skinner as serious risk of injury. There are zero reasons to skin an animal while it’s still alive and it simply is not practiced.
Don’t be so quick to believe everything you see.
I can’t imagine how hard on the shoulders and neck skinning a live animal would be. Skinning dead animals makes it feel like someone is punching me in the neck the whole time lmfao
Fewer crop species are feeding the world than 50 years ago - raising concerns about the resilience of the global food system, a study has shown.
The authors warned a loss of diversity meant more people were dependent on key crops, leaving them more exposed to harvest failures.
Higher consumption of energy-dense crops could also contribute to a global rise in heart disease and diabetes, they added.
"Over the past 50 years, we are seeing that diets around the world are changing and they are becoming more similar - what we call the ‘globalised diet’," co-author Colin Khoury, a scientist from the Colombia-based International Center for Tropical Agriculture, explained.
"This diet is composed of big, major cops such as wheat, rice, potatoes and sugar.
"It also includes crops that were not important 50 years ago but have become very important now, particularly oil crops like soybean," he told BBC News.
While wheat has long been a staple crop, it is now a key food in more than 97% of countries listed in UN data, the study showed.
And from relative obscurity, soybean had become “significant” in the diets of almost three-quarters of nations.
He added that while these food crops played a major role in tackling global hunger, the decline in crop diversity in the globalised diet limited the ability to supplement the energy-dense part of the diet with nutrient-rich foods.
Amid the crops recording a decline in recent decades were millets, rye, yams, sweet potatoes and cassava.
I’m saving up for a Duluth bed roll for camping without a tent. Duluth makes one of the only two USA made canvas bed rolls, and it looks sturdier than the Oregon bed roll. Wynnchester bed rolls looks awesome too, and of course the numerous Australian swag bags look amazing, but they’d cost a shitload more just for shipping alone. I just can’t find any decent reviews on bedrolls, so I’m kind of just winging it here. Not many people use them and I dont know why. Hell of a lot better than buying a new synthetic 100$ tent every other year.
Does anyone have experience with Duluth or other bedrolls/swag bags?
