The cruelty of fur 

March 2018

It takes 65 mink, 40 foxes, 15 lynx or 60 rabbits to make such a coat. Today, mass factory farms are spread around the world. 85% are in Europe, 10% in North America and the rest in China and Russia, to provide the fashion industry.

Tens of millions of animals are bred and brutally killed in the archaic fur trade, mostly by anal or vaginal electrocution, so the fur is left intact. With all the beautiful synthetic fabrics available today the fur industry could be made obsolete and, of course, should be.

There is nothing glamorous or kind about wearing the fur of dead animals.
