Fur farms stink in every way!
All fur farms employ intensive battery-type farming methods.
Animals suffer terribly under these barbaric conditions.
Minks are semi-aquatic and need water in the form of streams or lakes. A mink’s natural living environment is always near water or on wooded banks. Generally they are solitary and inquisitive animals except when they pair off during the mating season.
They suffer physically and emotionally on fur farms, where they are crammed into tiny metal cages that injure their little feet.
Each mink skinned produces about 20 kilos of faeces in his or her lifetime.
Besides this, Nitrous Oxide (N2O) and Ammonia (NH3) emissions from mink manure have a noticeable adverse impact on the environment. Waste can be soaked into the soil and end up in the ground water. When it rains it can also run into nearby streams resulting in contamination.
Danish investors are planning to construct a mink fur farm in the Bulgarian city of Stara Zagora.
According to a recent report these developers claim that they,
“will be raising 400,000 small carnivorous mammals. The proper ones will be selected for reproduction purposes and the rest will be killed in gas chambers and their skins will be transported to Poland to be used in the fashion industry. The dead bodies of the animals will be burned out”.
Animal activists have started a protest against this development on the grounds that it will pollute the environment.
