The Truth About the Fur Industry

Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives in confining, crowded, and filthy wire cages. Because fur farmers only care about keeping the pelts intact, they use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods. Which include suffocation, electrocution, gas, and poison. Wild trapped animals can suffer for days from shock, dehydration, blood loss, frostbite, drowning and attacks by predators. When the trappers finally arrive, they will often stomp or beat the animals to death. China is the world’s largest fur exporter, where millions of animals are bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and often skinned alive for their fur. Furs from China, including dog and cat, are often deliberately mislabeled as fur from other species. China supplies more than half of the fur in the United States.
