85% of the fur industry’s skins come from animals on fur farms. Millions more animals are victims of trapping; caught in the #wild using spring traps with metal teeth that smash bone and tear muscle.
Fur trim is not a by-product. Many, perhaps more than half of all animals killed for their #fur, are killed specifically for #furtrim.
There are also many environmental dangers inherent in the #furindustry. There is no such thing as “green” or “#ecofriendly” fur. It takes more than 15 times as much energy to produce a #furcoat than it does to produce a #fakefur.
#Consumers need to know the incredible amount of #suffering and devastation represented in each fur item, whether it is a full-length coat, #furlining or fur trim.
This #cruelty will end only when consumers refuse to buy or wear fur of any kind.
There are no penalties for abusing animals on #furfarms in China, which is the world’s largest fur exporter. China supplies more than half of the finished fur garments imported for sale in the United States.
85% of the fur industry’s skins come from animals on fur farms. #Rabbits, #foxes, #mink, #chinchillas and other animals on fur farms spend their entire short, miserable lives in tiny, filthy wire cages until they are killed by bludgeoning, neck-breaking, or anal or vaginal electrocution.
The anguish and frustration of #life in a cage leads animals on fur farms to self-mutilate, biting at their skin, tails and feet. Many animals frantically pace and circle endlessly, and some even cannibalize their cage mates.
Parasites and disease are prevalent on fur farms due to the #deplorable and overcrowded conditions.
