INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

You would never force an animal to live in a cramped, barren cage suspended over her own waste. But hundreds of thousands of animals on “fur farms” are forced to endure such unconscionable misery while awaiting their grim fate.

While many European countries have banned or severely restricted fur farming, the United States has largely turned a blind eye to this barbaric industry. Born Free USA’s ground breaking report “Cruelty Uncaged: A Review of Fur Farming in North America” revealed that, in addition to the inherently cruel conditions mink, fox, and even bobcats suffer, the farms also place native wildlife at risk and are sources of environmental pollution.

BornFree USA's Report: Cruelty Uncaged - Fur Farming in North America
50 pages, full color, spiral bound. This comprehensive report reviews the scientific literature on the welfare of fur farmed animals as well as the statistics and legislative oversight, or lack thereof, of wild animals raised for their fur in the United States and Canada including foxes, minks, lynx and bobcats.
