A Chinese worker skins a mink in a factory at a mink farm on the outskirts of Changchun, Jilin Province, China. 5 December 2008. These workers are seasonal staff which are usually drawn from nearby villages. This provides a boost to the local economy and additional income for farmers who are usually free during the winter months. A skilled worker can skin as many as 350 animals a day.
