In China, PETA Asia exposed the insane abuse of donkeys used for ejiao—a "medicine" that comes from boiling down their skin. The animals were struck on the head with a sledgehammer and left to writhe on the ground as their throats were slit.
But the craziest part is that companies are still choosing to profit from the ingredient after learning about its source.

Despite being informed that donkeys suffer greatly in this industry, these companies continue to sell this cruelly obtained product:
- Bolt Health Supplements
- Chinese Herbs Direct
- Evergreen Herbs
- Kwok Shing Trading Co.
- Natural Nutritionals
- Treasure of East
- TS Emporium
We shouldn't have to tell companies that donkeys are complex, emotional beings who can feel pain and fear as well as happiness and excitement.
We shouldn't have to explain why it's wrong to confine these sensitive animals to small, filthy, concrete-floored pens, in which many were seen standing in their own waste and without access to clean drinking water.
And we shouldn't have to try to persuade them to have some basic compassion for these animals, who, at the end of their abuse-filled lives, are hit on the forehead with sledgehammers before their throats are cut.
It's so painfully obvious that it's wrong to treat animals this way and that selling or buying ejiao supports this horribly cruel industry. There's no excuse for companies to profit from products containing ejiao now that they know who it comes from.
Tell these companies to STOP supporting extreme animal abuse.
