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.

Is that real fur

Certain shops “proudly” sell their goods as containing real animal fur.

It is when trinkets are labelled as “faux fur”, that we are often fooled.

Products passed as “faux fur” are often dyed dog and cat fur.

According to Fur Free SA,

“Dog and cat fur appears as fur trim on jackets, shoes, scarves, trinkets, toys, hair bands, and sometimes even full fur coats.

Real fur is routinely dyed unnatural colours and sheared, which gives it the appearance of faux fur to the untrained eye.

 Fur “trim” is no longer made up of cast-offs from larger pelts, but instead has become a booming industry in its own right, often inextricably linked to the dog and cat meat industry.

Many countries have extremely vague labelling laws, meaning that items containing dog and cat fur are often deliberately mislabelled as faux fur, or under exotic sounding names such as gae-wolf, goupee, Asian wolf, China wolf, Mongolian dog fur, Sobaki, Pommern wolf, dogues de Chine, and loup d’Asie.

Cat fur is frequently passed off as rabbit, maopee, goyangi, katzenfelle, natuerliches mittel, chat de Chine, and gatto cinesi”.
