The EU is the world leading fur producer with a share of ca. 70% in the world production of fox and mink pelts.
There are more than 6.000 fur farms in 18 EU countries (for foxes, minks, ferrets, raccoon dogs, chinchillas). The fur producing countries are: Finland, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Greece, Poland, the Baltic states, Czech Republic, Romania, Hungary.
Each year on fur farms worldwide more than 50 million wild animals get raised under torturous conditions and killed for their fur, by anal electrocution (foxes) or gassing (minks), or even skinned alive. You can watch the recent undercover investigation done by Respect for Animals at Fur Farms in the Republic of Ireland https://youtu.be/EKLQsUEx1WI
