Natural fur has been consistently loved as a winter fashion item even at a high price due to its very soft fur and high heat retention.
However, since the use of fur requires the sacrifice of animals, there are many voices opposing fur production. Recently, the image of a fox being sacrificed for fur was revealed through an animal protection group, sparking an anti-animal movement, and citizens. is attracting the attention of
In a video released by a famous Finnish animal rights group called ‘Oikeutta eläimille’, an arctic fox was bred on a fur farm in Ostrobotnia, northern Finland.
People who saw the video for the first time did not know that it was an arctic fox, and the arctic fox was only in a state of ruffled flesh to make fur.
They ate only high-fat feed in a narrow cage, and their size was abnormally large, and their average weight was close to 20 kg, which was not compared to the average fox weight of 3.5 kg.
Even if you think about it, the condition of the foxes weighing more than five times could not be good, and for the active arctic foxes, the narrow cage was not a prison but hell itself.
The fur factory captured by this group in the video is Finland, and Finland is the largest fur factory in Europe. There are many companies that supply fur to many well-known brands and fur distributors, and the number of Arctic foxes killed in Finland each year is 2 million.
Under Finnish law, it is illegal to domesticate animals in a way that harms them, but this is only an explicit statement, and this unethical breeding practice still tacitly continues.
For fur fashion hats and outerwear made by luxury brands, 10 to 20 arctic foxes are required per pair.
An animal rights group spokesperson said: “The condition of these animals is a creation of profit-seeking humans, and larger skin and larger size means more profit for fur traders. Those who inflict pain on animals will pay the price. .” he criticized.
