Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

Feel free to always confront the truth.

I read the following story by Chris Perez (New York Post – October 20, 2014),  where a woman goes to a fox farm for a fur coat and instead rescues the fox.

As Perez states, this creature would have given up her life for “the horrible price of vanity”.

The story goes:

“I’d much rather buy her and release her than have her killed and wear her,” Natalia explained. “Not now that I had seen her alive.”

When Natalia realised the tiny fox had been removed from her mother at a very young age and probably wouldn’t survive in the wild, she decided to keep the fox for herself.

Natalia Gaintseva and her black fox Kiryusha.

As the quote by Paul Mc Cartney goes:

“If slaughterhouses had GLASS WALLS everyone would be VEGETARIAN”.

WELL, IF FUR FARMS HAD GLASS WALLS, EVERY FOX WOULD BE FREE.

Dedicated to all nonhuman animals who live and die in captivity!

    Poor fox shouldn’t be a pet but I join your applause for the sweet and kind soul evident in Natalia, Emy.

      Hi Lee. Because of human greed this seems to be one of those no win situations. This fox should never have been bred on a fur farm in the first place. Yes, in an ideal world foxes should be free in the wild. I really hope it works out for Natalia and Kiryusha the fox.

      Hi Peter 😀

      Although it was such a small act of kindess for only one desperate creature, hopefully it will influence others.
      I really hope it works out for Natalia and Kiryusha the fox.

      All the best.

    I think she should be commended for what she has done. Since the fox is no longer suitable for living in the wild. At-least she will be looked after by one whom loves her.

    Yay, a good story. Just shoes that when most people are confronted with the real thing, and can see and feel the animal before them, they would choose the compassionate way most of the time. The problem is that these things are typically removed from our experience and sight.
