Millions of animals are killed just for their fur or skin. Fur Farms are no different from Factory Farms and Research Labs, as the animals all live in filthy cages and suffer terribly, ultimately having a violent death all in the name of fashion. Since animals raised for fur are most valued because of their coat, they are typically killed by anal/vaginal electrocution or by having their neck broken. Many, especially on Chinese fur farms, are hit on the head and then skinned alive while still conscious.
Visit our Resources page for more information on the suffering animals endure on fur farms and in the leather, silk & wool industries. It should be noted that the leather industry is directly linked to the factory farming and slaughterhouse industries. We can direct you to resources that support compassionate clothing and accessory choices that are free of animal fur and skins.
