The Fur Industry

Fox in cage on fur farm

More than 30 million animals are killed each year on the world's fur farms. In the U.S. alone, 3 million die on farms and another 4 million are trapped.

Animals caught in leghold traps may be trapped for days. They may freeze or starve to death; some will gnaw off their limbs in an attempt to escape. The animal is clubbed or stomped to death in order to avoid damage to the pelt.

Animals on fur farms live their entire lives—only a fraction of their normal life spans—in cramped, wire-mesh cages, until they are electrocuted, gassed, poisoned, or have their necks broken.

can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
