A Shocking Look Inside Swedish Fur Farms
In a year and a half, investigators from the Animal Rights Alliance toured 20 per cent of fur farms in Sweden. Shocking photos and video footage taken during the investigations document the routine cruelty suffered by minks on Swedish fur farms.
Minks are semi-aquatic, solitary animals who may occupy up to 2,500 acres of wetland habitat in the wild. On fur farms, minks are crammed into filthy, wire cages and are never allowed to feel the earth beneath their feet or dive into a cool stream. They often suffer from open wounds and infections, receiving no veterinary care. Crowding and confinement on fur farms also causes minks severe psychological distress, and they often can be seen bobbing their heads and pacing. Investigation photos reveal that many minks even resort to self-mutilation and cannibalism.
Every year, the fur industry heartlessly kills approximately 50 million animals, many of whom are skinned alive. But you can help fight this cruelty by signing the pledge to go fur-free!
Pledge to Be Fur-Free
I, the undersigned, hereby pledge to go fur-free. I say ''No!'' to the cruel and barbaric slaughter of millions of animals around the world for their skin. I say ''No!'' to fur coats, fur collars, fur trim, fur trinkets, fur cat toys and other products made from the fur of animals as well as to any attempt to sneak fur into everyday items. I pledge to expose the truth about fur and spread the word until we close down the international fur trade forever.
