How much leather is produced every year?

    According to the PETA site, over one billion animals are used a year for leather.  The animals farmed for leather include the following: cows, sheep, horses, goats pigs and even zebras, bison, water buffaloes, boars, kangaroos, elephants, eels, sharks, dolphins, seals, walruses, frogs, turtles, crocodiles, lizards, and snakes.  These animals are sometimes raised just for their skins, and sometimes it is just one more use found for their carcasses.  The leather industry is hugely profitable, supported by consumers in most countries, and the products used to treat leather actually cause the skin to no longer be capable of degrading.
