I literally HATE posting this picture, but if collectively we don’t see what goes on…it continues to go on.
“We brutally shoved an electrode into the anus and put another in the mouth of this sensitive little animal.
He’s scared, he’s already hurt…”
He cries, not knowing what will happen next.
In seconds, electricity will pass through his small body and he will slowly burn inside until death follows…
Why is this method, cruel, barbaric?
To make sure his fur isn’t damaged.
– Because if we shoot him, we’ll damage the fur
– If we stab him, there will be blood on the fur.
We need to share this information, so that people walking around in Canada Goose and other fur, feathers and skin might come to understand how unfathomably cruel this is…and that they are complicit.
It is unlikely that the buyer of a fur coat is aware of how many animals were required to make that single garment. 100 chinchillas or as many as 60 minks are required to make one full-length fur coat; depending on the type of fox, 10 to 24 may be required.
Eighty-five percent of the fur industry’s skins come from animals who were held captive on fur factory farms, where they were crammed into severely crowded, filthy wire cages. Many were later beaten or electrocuted—and sometimes even skinned alive.
After an animal has been slaughtered, his or her skin is treated with toxic chemicals to keep it from rotting and decomposing in the buyer’s closet. According to The World Bank, the hazardous process of fur dressing is so problematic that the fur industry is now ranked as one of the world’s five worst industries for toxic-metal pollution.
