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.

For Christians around the world, Easter is a time to observe and celebrate.

In a conflation of various myths and pagan practices the Easter bunny (rabbit/hare) has now become associated with Easter. It has become a symbol of rebirth and fertility associated with eggs.                                                                                                                            easterbunny.jpg

When it comes to the fur industry, though, these cute fluffy creatures have a rough time.

Increasingly, worldwide, millions of rabbits are being farmed and killed solely for their fur – a total waste of life.

These rabbits are kept in disgusting battery farm conditions.                                                                                                                                                 caged rabbits

They are then brutally killed and skinned, sometimes while still alive.                                                                                                   Skinning rabbits

Not only is rabbit fur used in the making of fur coats and hats but is also used as fur trim. Fur trim is a totally decorative and unnecessary part of any garment. 

Fur from rabbits is often the base of trinkets, such as pet toys and may even be labelled as faux fur. 

It takes 30-40 rabbits to make just one fur coat.

40 rabbitsThe two main breeds in the commercial rabbit farming industry are the Rex and New Zealand White.

Angora fur is sheared off the live Angora rabbit and recently PeTA exposed the intense cruelty in this process.

As a result, many retailers have withdrawn Angora based products from their shelves.

Please don’t buy any fur-trimmed item unless you are absolutely sure it is fake.

    This is so shocking, so sad I can never understand such cruelty. I avoid fake fur, as you just never know if it is really fake. If it comes from China it can be a mixture of fake fur and the real thing so I avoid buying it even just a trim. Besides I think that faux fur encourages the use of real fur. Poor Bunnies, they’ re one of the most abused animals often used in experiments and more often neglected and mistreated as pets than are cats or dogs.
