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 I first read this news about a document released by the Environmental Investigation Agency, a London-based nonprofit, and the U.S.-based Animal Welfare Institute, I thought it was  a bad April Fool’s joke.

Sadly it’s not!

Norway is one of the three countries that continues to commercially hunt whales.

Norway has a thriving fur industry. According to the press release, last year alone Norway “exported between 258 tons of fox skins and 1,000 tons of mink skins to the European Union”.

Because very few people in Norway want to eat whale meat, this meat is ending up in the feed manufactured for animals on fur farms.

Rogaland Pelsdyrfôrlaget is  the largest manufacturer of animal feed for Norway’s fur industry and includes whale meat in its feed.

SHAME ON NORWAY.

  1. Disgusting. I don’t have words to say it and express myself in a “composed way”… and we still think that we (in EU) are civilised… pointing out fingers toward the Country of the South (uncivilised?)…
    Ahh surely we are a great good example to follow.

  2. […] demand for whale products in Norway is very limited; this is why the whaling industry is desperately trying to find new ways to boost […]

    Reblogged this on Ravens-Tree.com and commented:
    Both practices are horrific and have no place in a civilised world. Sadly it appears the world is not advancing in any civilised meaningful way, but rather is more and more regressive with each year that passes.

    Some time ago my husband and I did a cruise in Norway and were absolutely horrified to discover whale meat on the menu. Another American couple were also horrified to see this and we complained vociferously to the captain. Once again, it comes down to speaking up and speaking out whenever you can about animal abuse. It is exhausting but how else do you sleep at night!
