5 Photos Which Summarize the Fur Industry

The fur industry is constantly hiding and glamourising it's cruel trade in order to cover up the truth: animals on fur farms suffer horrific abuse. We have documented this reality to show you what is hidden behind the dark cages which imprison animals in the name of a fur coat. Any garment containing animal skin involves cruelty, abuse and torture.


The photos below are from our own investigative work into the fur industry. The fur farms supply these animal skins to global manufacturers and shops worldwide, reaching countries throughout Europe like the UK.

We continue to document and expose the current conditions of animals on fur farms which are hidden away from the public. Fur should have been banished long ago but the fur industry is, once again, trying to re-integrate its cruel garments into society by targeting youth and fashion followers in an attempt to increase their sales. All fur products are drenched in pain and death. We believe it is important for consumers and citizens to know the reality which has been hidden for far too long. Below are 5 photographs which exemplify the fur industry, in no specific order as the living hell for each animal is equally distressing:

1. With no veterinary care, animals on fur farms are often left to die with severe infections and diseases.

2. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. What do these eyes tell you?

3. Surrounded by blood, this rabbit is aware of what is going to happen next, as she sees her family in the background:

4. Born to die: their fate is in the hands of their abusers.

5. The ruthlessness of the fur industry at its peak: animals violently turned into products.

Most people will never see inside a farm or slaughterhouse, so when they have concerns about how animals are treated in order to produce the products they buy, they put their trust in others to tell them what is happening on those farms. For most consumers, this means putting trust…
