Video: Pythons Bashed With Hammers, Impaled on Hooks for Gucci’s Parent Company

London – Released today, following a story published by CBS News, a new PETA Asia investigation into two python farms that supply skins to Caravel, a tannery operated by Kering, owner of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, reveals workers pinning struggling pythons down by the neck, bashing them in the head with a hammer, punching metal hooks through their heads, and inflating their bodies with water – even as the animals continue to move about – before skinning them.  PETA is demanding that the company stop selling accessories derived from the slaughter of wild animals, including ones made of snake and lizard skins. Video footage of the investigation is available here.
