10 Shocking, ‘Bloody’ Demos [PHOTOS]

Every year, the fur industry heartlessly kills 50 million animals. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, where they have only enough room to take a few steps in any direction. Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available—animals are bludgeoned, suffocated, electrocuted, gassed, poisoned, hanged, and often skinned alive for their fur.

Animal rights activists around the world have taken a stand for animals who are slated to be killed for the cruel fashion industry. These demonstrations pale in comparison to the real bloodshed in the fur industry, but here are 10 of the “bloodiest” demonstration photos to give you an idea of the suffering that animals endure on fur farms: 

Animal advocates in London’s Trafalgar Square protested against the Canadian government for allowing sealers to beat and skin hundreds of thousands of seals every year.

Protesters at a “bloody” demonstration in Ottawa spread the word that only animals should wear fur.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
