“The animals always get food as a pulped mix. Basic behavioural needs are ignored because as carnivores, foxes have a strong motivation to bite their food. Here they can only lick. No animal should be kept for fur. It’s a fashion product no one needs and easy to replace.”Sign PetitionSign Petition
Fur has undergone a fashion revival despite a successful campaign in the 1990s led by Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and fronted by supermodels who said “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur”.
‘The animals don’t have space to move. They have eye infections and some have no tails, which could be a sign of cannibalism. “Foxes are born in a cage, spend seven months there then are killed. This is all they know for their entire lives.”t’s all in the name of fashion. Once animals reach the right size they are electrocuted, their pelts are stripped off and sold to luxury fashion labels
Customers include Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Gucci. The fur will adorn the shoulders of supermodels such as Cara Delevingne in catwalk shows then end up in the wardrobes of the world’s wealthiest people.
Fur products are seen on top names including Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Kate Moss and a study by blog fashionista.com found 70% of designers used fur in last autumn’s shows.
