Over a hundred million animals are killed annually for fur and fur factory farms supply 95% of the fur to the industry. Animals spend their short lives standing on wire floors in tiny cages, enduring both physical and psychological trauma. Their natural instincts are constantly frustrated, often causing “stereotypic” behaviour, self-mutilation or the mutilation of a cage companion. The most common methods of killing include gassing, electrocution and clubbing. It is estimated that there are about 6000 fur farms in the EU and every year about 30 million minks, 2 million foxes and 100,000 sheep dogs are killed on European fur farms. China is the world’s largest importer of fur and also the world’s largest exporter of finished fur products.
