How to Cure a Fur Wearer in Less Than Two Minutes (Video)

Published by Kimberly Walls.

Did you know that more than half of the fur sold in the U.S. comes from China, where there are no penalties for abusing animals? Dogs, cats, foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals are suffocated, poisoned, electrocuted, bludgeoned, hanged, or bled to death—and many are still alive and struggling desperately when workers crudely skin them. If someone you love still thinks that fur is fashionable, ask them to invest a couple of minutes in reconsidering.

Because of the intense confinement and rough handling, animals on fur farms suffer from anxiety-induced psychosis, causing them to chew on their own limbs, throw themselves repeatedly against cage bars, and kill their own offspring out of desperation.

Up to 40 animals are killed to make just one fur coat. The premium that fur wearers pay for animal carcasses perpetuates this violent industry, which is the opposite of the refined lifestyle that fur wearers wish to project.
