I wear my fair share of leather, and eat any and all things meat . I'll read the label on the shampoo to see if it is tested on animals, I will be happy if it isn't but will probably still buy it even if it is.
Anyway, when I started looking into wetshaving I actually thought about this very question, and found a site that proclaimed that the badgers were not harmed, they were shorn, like sheep (their example, not mine).

Does anyone know what the practice actually is within the industry?

So, Dave, the badger that provided your brush could have fed a large family in China. On the other hand, I shudder to think of the poor dogs and cats in small cages being sold as food in farmers markets in some Asian countries. Somehow, the fact that they're domesticated and household pets here makes it impossible to accept....
