Bred To Die: Foxes Forced To Suffer In Misery Until Being Killed For Their Fur

Published: January 27, 2023 at 01:55 PM Author: Penny Eims

Finland – In Finland, the world’s leading producer of fox pelts, thousands of foxes are killed each year for their fur, and the conditions the animals are kept in until they are killed are nothing short of appalling. Shocking undercover footage recently obtained by Oikeutta Elaimille (Justice for Animals) reveals Finland’s cruel secret.

Farmed foxes live in barren wire cages, they suffer from skin and eye infections, and sometimes they resort to cannibalism. These beautiful animals are purposefully bred, and overfed, to make them obese. Why? In order to get larger fur pelts when the animals are slaughtered.

Is it not bad enough that these foxes are born to die? Must they suffer through a miserable existence until the day they are slaughtered? These are social, friendly animals who are forced to leave in bleak wire cages, devoid of freedom, until the day they are killed.

Executive Director of Humane Society International/UK, Claire Bass says:

“We saw a few hundred of the millions of foxes and mink trapped in miles of battery cages in Finland. These poor young animals exist only as vessels for their fur, as broken and tormented souls. We saw weeping eye infections, infected wounds, dead cubs and cannibalism; all of this suffering to provide a frivolous product that the fashion industry does not need.”

Please add your name to the petition today! Animal Victory wants to see these cruel fur farms shut down. This industry has inflicted enough pain, suffering, and misery upon innocent animals who are abused and then killed… because greedy humans feel the need to wear their fur as a fashion statement. Enough is enough.

We the undersigned demand that Finnish officials ban the farming and sale of fur. The fur industry causes immense suffering to the animals. Many other countries in Europe have already banned fur farming and it is time for Finland to join them, and end this miserable industry.

Individuals are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. Animal Victory relies upon the authorities and the court system to determine guilt or innocence.

16,285 Christine Hein The pain and suffering these poor animals endure before they are finally killed is horrific. Their death is painful too so the fur isn't ruined. We don't need such farms, there's plenty of coats made of non animal products like cotton or alternative down that will keep you warm. This needs to end, shut the farm down now! Sep 05, 2023
