This might be the most disturbing footage you’ve ever seen, so we had to blur it. Crocodiles are held down as their necks are cut open and metal rods are jammed down their spines. Blood pours from their heads down into the trough below. This happens while they are still alive and moving. This is the hidden cost of crocodile skin bags, wallets, watches, and other items. This is Vietnam’s exotic skins trade.
VIETNAM’S EXOTIC SKINS TRADE: A PETA EXPOSE
Vietnam exports around 30,000 crocodile skins every year, including to a tannery that supplies the skins for luxury brand Louis Vuitton and other major brands. But eyewitnesses found crocodiles living in squalor at every farm they visited. At this farm, thousands of crocodiles were crammed into filthy enclosures, some smaller than the length of their bodies. They are confined for 15 months to these pits, which an expert called “overly-restrictive, understimulating and inhumane” for large crocodiles. At another, crocodiles are jam-packed into concrete pits. Both of these farms supply crocodile skins to a tannery owned by Louis Vuitton’s parent company, LVMH, and some of the “biggest brands” according to a farm owner.
…and they will slaughter [her] to send to Heng Long, the company which makes the really big bag[s] for Louis Vuitton and some of the biggest brands.
At another farm, workers shock crocodiles in an attempt to stun them. Then they are carried to a room where they’ll be slaughtered. This ineffective killing method, in which crocodiles’ neck are cut open and metal rods are jammed down their spines, has long been shown to be inhumane. Again, we’ve blurred it here. Here, a crocodile moves after being cut open.
Because crocodiles can live for periods with very little oxygen, they can survive for hours after this procedure meaning many of the millions of crocodiles killed each year for their skins may experience a prolonged, painful death. A reptile expert who watched this footage said that “the neck incisions would have been very painful and inhumane” and “There is no probability that these animals ‘died instantly.'”
Crocodiles are sometimes even skinned alive, as this farmer explains.
You have to skin alive? So they are alive when you skin? Yeah, they were. Yeah. When you cut…the head, they can still be alive for about another four or five hours until entirely dead.

PETA has exposed cruelty at reptile farms on three continents and the story is always the same: grim confinement and a violent death. This is what millions of animals endure every year for the exotic skins trade. Whether they’re Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Prada, or any other brand, exotic skins are a product of extreme suffering.
You can help stop this. Share this video, never buy bags, shoes, or other products made from animal skins, and ask you friends and family to do the same.
