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.

When the fur industry themselves admit that cruelty takes place on fur farms you must know it is REALLY BAD!

Earlier this year (2015) Mike Moser, CEO of the British Fur Trade Association, agreed that animals on European fur farms “are distressed”.

This comment was in response to a journalist showing Moser footage of fur farms with animals suffering from severe injuries, including open wounds and sores.

The journalist was writing about Harvey Nichols a British shop that after 10 years of being fur free, in September 2013, resumed the sale of fur in its United Kingdom stores.

Harvey Nichols sources its fur from European fur farms that form part of the “Origin Assured” (OA™) quality control scheme.

Displaying the OA™ label on fur items is meant to assure consumers that the fur originates from a country where animal welfare regulations or standards governing fur production are in force.

Robert Fischer from Erich Fischer Furriers prides himself on being Africa’s only fur specialist that abides by the OA™  label. He therefore claims that his fur produce is sourced ethically.

origin assured label

Ongoing investigations of these certified origin assured farms have consistently revealed shocking conditions.

However, NO fur farm can be humane, as wild animals are crammed into tiny cages waiting for an agonising death.

For these creatures, the only thing worse than dying on a fur farm is living on a fur farm.

Anyone supporting the fur industry lacks morality.

  2. signed, it makes me laugh when you read Origin Assured. The only thing assured is denial & cruelty.
