All around the world, at fur farms like this one, minks—as well as rabbits, foxes, and other animals—are crammed into barren cages and have the skin ripped off their bodies, all to make fur coats, collars, and trinkets. Fur farmers use the cheapest killing methods available—all of them cruel—including suffocation, electrocution, poison, or gas (as you see at this farm). Animals killed for their fur don't always die immediately, and many suffer intensely as they struggle to survive.
The fur industry would have you believe that fashion justifies such torture, but there is never any excuse for such barbaric treatment of animals.
Do you have friends or family members who still think that fur or other animal skins are fashionable? Remind them that in some countries, even cats and dogs are skinned—sometimes while still alive—for their fur, which is often mislabeled, exported, and sold to unsuspecting consumers.
Published on Nov 25, 2014This video, narrated by Paloma Faith, is a compilation of footage from fur farms in countries qualified to bear the "Origin-Assured" label, which was created by the fur industry. It shows shockingly cruel treatment of animals. Foxes, minks, raccoons and rabbits suffer from weeping open wounds, chew off their own limbs in desperation and go insane inside their tiny, filthy cages.
The only thing you can ever guarantee about fur is the cruelty that went into its production – wherever it comes from and whatever the label says. Learn more, and get involved with the campaign against this barbaric industry: http://petauk.org/originassured.
