Sick Fur Industry
In a large percentage of the fur industry as much as 85% fur comes from abandoned farms. Thousands of animals live their poor lives in filthy cages and wait for their fur to be used. Most used animals for Fur: beavers, chinchillas, dogs and cats, foxes, minks, rabbits, raccoons, seals, bears. The only thing these farmers are interested in is profit. Farmers are not interested in the living conditions of these animals or that animals facilitate the act of removing fur from them. To reduce the cost of animals put them in little cages, so they can not reproduce what is also important. Of course, for reasons of space the animals become aggressive and very often attacks one another and sometimes even themselves. Due to poor conditions in the stables and presence of animal feces, those animals often suffer from parasites and other diseases.
They eat meat byproducts, and get just enough water to survive. Because fur farmers care only about preserving the quality of the fur, they use slaughter methods that keep the pelts intact but that can result in extreme suffering for the animals. Some animals even wake up while they are being skinned. Animals have clamps attached to or rods forced into their mouths and anuses, and they are painfully electrocuted. Unfortunately, no federal humane slaughter law protects animals on fur factory farms, and killing methods are gruesome. Other animals are poisoned with strychnine, which suffocates them by paralyzing their muscles with painful, rigid cramps. Neck-breaking is another common slaughter method on fur factory farms. The fur industry refuses to condemn even blatantly cruel killing methods.
