Millions of animals are killed in the fur trade every year. Many of these animals are no different than the domestic animals you have as home companions. Lynxes and bobcats are just wild cats. Coyotes and foxes are just wild dogs. They are no different than your cats and dogs. Do you have a rabbit as a companion animal? They're not spared either. No fur bearing animal is safe.
The entire fur industry is built on the vanity and greed of the worst examples of humanity and SADISTIC ANIMAL ABUSE. In countries where there are no animal welfare standards, fur bearing animals may be bludgeoned to death or skinned alive. Countries with animal welfare standards have fur farms and also use killing methods like gassing, trapping and vaginal/anal electrocution. But ask yourself who enforces these animal welfare standards? No one. Any barbarity can happen in any country involved in the fur trade with no legal repercussion for the fur industry.
Although the public is more aware of the true price animals pay for fur nowadays, and despite economic downfalls, the fur industry stays alive because fur trim in garments is now more common than fur coats themselves. Whatever the manner the fur is used, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR ANIMAL ABUSE. No animal should die or suffer for an idiotic sense of fashion.
While the Animals' Battalion supports all forms of fur activism, we focus on furriers and fur stores. The person who walks into such an establishment is deliberately making a commitment to support pure animal cruelty. That individual has declared themselves our enemy in this war to protect the fauna.
