Fur Facts

85% of the fur industry’s skins come from animals on fur  factory farms where thousands of animals are kept in tiny wire cages for their entire lives. 

Many animals go insane under these conditions. They self-mutilate, biting at their skin, feet and tails while frantically pacing and circling endlessly and even cannibalise their cage mates who are often not removed from the cage but left to rot right next to the living animals.

Ammonia from the animals’ accumulated urine and feces burns their eyes and lungs. Parasites and disease run rampant on fur farms, making these animals’ already miserable lives even more unbearable.

 

In order to keep the pelts intact, animals are killed with the most horrendous methods: they are electrocuted by clamps attached to or rods forced into their mouths and anuses, poisoned with strychnine which suffocates them by paralyzing their muscles with painful rigid cramps or their necks are broken. Genital electrocution causes animals to suffer from cardiac arrest while they are still conscious. Some animals wake up while they are being skinned.
