Exposed: Baby Ostriches Slaughtered for Louis Vuitton Luxury Bags


PETA investigators traveled to South Africa to get never-before-seen footage inside the largest ostrich slaughter companies in the world.

Investigators saw workers force terrified ostriches into stun boxes—causing many to slip and fall—and then slit their throats.

When ostriches stumbled over a collapsed flock mate outside a slaughterhouse, a plant director joked, “I’ll call the animal welfare officer just now.”

These slaughterhouses supply ostrich skins to Hermès, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and other top European fashion houses. Feathers, some of which are ripped out of the ostriches’ skin while they are fully conscious, are used in costumes for the Moulin Rouge and festivals like Brazil’s Rio Carnival as well as in feather dusters, boas, and accessories.

  1. This is a picture of Hermès handbag, NO WHERE in the actual video does it mention Louis Vuitton, Louis Vuitton uses different leathers and not from here! You all need to take this article title down, if you want to report and comment on video you need to change the LV to Hermès!

    • Barbara, if they reported the supplier supplies to a name brand then it’s accurate based on their risk.

      Where do you think any luxury brand sources their murder from-eco friendly death dumps?!

      It’s a seriously sick society that buys into ignorance and naivety to consider leather; furs and fashion are conscious when by historic record they are known to be unconscious and superficial by nature of what’s promoted.
