Behind every fur item, there is a barbaric story that amounts to piles of bloodied, slaughtered and skinned innocent animals discarded as trash. The basic and tragic simple truth that the fur trade works hard to hide.
Animals caught in traps are left for days or longer in extraordinary pain and sometimes chew off their own paws to try to escape their agony. Those animals can include dogs and cats trapped by accident.
Animals raised on fur farms are housed in unbearably small cages and suffer their entire lives from fear, stress, disease, parasites and other physical and psychological hardships.
When the industry is finally ready to take their fur, the animals are often killed by electrocution, gassing, poisoning or other methods that will preserve the quality of the pelts regardless of the pain and suffering inflicted on the animals. Some animals are even skinned alive.
