- Write to the federal Minister of Agriculture to let him know that it is time to ban fur farms in Canada.
- Write to the representatives of the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) and Pajar, sending them the messages already written that you will find below. Together, let’s push for these two retailers to stop selling fur products in their stores.
More than 100 million animals are killed each year around the world for their fur. In Canada, more than 3 million animals suffer a hideous spell for their fur.
In Canada, mink farms – an animal that has a territory of 5 km2 in the wild – confine animals to one-foot-by-two-footed cages, huddled together, among hundreds or thousands of others animals. Foxes, intelligent and sociable animals, are also confined to small cages. Cannibalism, severe infections, fractured legs and internal bleeding are common on fur farms.
In nature, jaw traps and other body traps are commonly used to catch and hold animals until the trapper comes to kill and pick up the animal. During this wait, the animals are unable to protect themselves against bad weather, hunger, thirst and can hurt themselves while trying to break free. All of these practices are inherently inhumane. And you can stop them.
