Wool doesn’t seem to be a material associated with abuse, torture and suffering. However, many videos online have proven that the wool industry may not be as innocent as we would presume. Below is an example of one of these videos which have exposed the mistreatment of many sheep.
Warning – [Graphic]
Workers are seen punching and kicking lambs, in some cases workers have been caught picking up lambs and throwing them onto the floor at full force. Tails, ears and lumps of flesh are often cut off without any anaesthetics. Some lambs were skinned alive and fully conscious, in full view of other lambs.
These investigations point out how difficult it is for brands to monitor their supply chains, even when their supply chains claim to be ethical. If you want to be certain that you are not supporting this kind of abuse, avoid buying wool.
