Because a manufacturer selects only the most suitable part of a hide or pelt, a heavy cost in individual lives is required to produce each and every garment. To make a small fur jacket, an entire family of mink are bred, confined, electrocuted, and skinned. To make a snakeskin handbag, 23 mature pythons are hunted, stuffed into sacks, nailed to trees, and skinned alive.

    Slaughter 8 calves to make this leather coat.
