Animal rights group PETA urged shoppers Wednesday to boycott products made from angora rabbit fur, after it released footage of fur being plucked from the skins of live rabbits on Chinese farms.

The video shows white angora rabbits at a variety of different farms tied to wooden tables in rooms filled with cages, as workers hold them down and tear off clumps of their fur by hand, while the animals scream in agony.

Another part of the video shows the rabbits pink-skinned after having their downy fur pulled off.

According to PETA 90 percent of the world's angora fur comes from China. Angora wool made using the fur is renowned for its silky, lightweight texture.
