Meet Tun, a raccoon dog rescued in Japan.
Raccoon dogs are a different species to the raccoon, but are named as such because of their markings.
While keeping a wild animal as a companion animal is not usually a good idea, Tun would not have lived if he was not rescued.
Thank you @chibi_tori for giving Tun a chance in life.
Many thousands of raccoon dogs are farmed intensively and brutally killed for their fur every year. Raccoon dog fur is also referred to as Murmansky fur and you will find it in fur fashion clothing across the world.

It is that time of the year when awards for achievements in the film industry are being handed out at glitzy ceremonies.
Have you ever wondered about the origin of fur costumes?
Unfortunately they are not all vintage!
One company supplying genuine fur to film sets is Wachtenheim Furs (LA), which claims to be the largest manufacturer of lynx fur worldwide. This furrier sells ready-made furs, as well as raw pelts from which designers can manufacture costumes.
However, as with the “real world”, people in the film world can make ethical choices.
For example, costume designer Deborah Hopper used faux fur in Angelina Jolie’s costume in the Changeling.
Here is Angelina on set for Salt, wearing “synchilla” (synthetic) and not chinchilla fur.
Thank you Angelina and Deborah for making ethical choices ❤
Cruelty is a choice.
A heartwarming video ❤
I cannot understand how anyone can kill foxes or any animal to make fur items that nobody needs in the 21st century.

One clever arctic fox escapes trappers.
The video tells the story so don’t be put off by the Russian language.
P.S. Sad about all the other animals who don’t get away!
DEDICATED TO ALL NONHUMAN ANIMALS WHO LIVE AND DIE BECAUSE OF HUMAN GREED.
Behind every piece of fur trim was a living creature!
