Fur-farms in the CZECH REPUBLIC

The animals suffer
from diseases and
behavioural disorders.
Animals are
kept in
sub-standard
conditions.
Farmed animals'
cages provide no
room for even their
most basic needs.
Killing an
animal for
its fur
nowadays
is immoral.
fox
In the wild, a fox can live for up to 10 years. On a farm, it doesn't even survive a year.
chinchilla
For just one chinchilla coat, 150 chinchillas must die.
mink
The mink is a semi-aquatic animal. But in a cage on a farm it is only given water to drink.
Mink and foxes are being killed aged 6-8 months on farms, chinchillas at 7-10 months.

Self-harming

Up to a quarter of chinchillas on farms
suffer from self-harming.

1/4

Death rate

The death rate of mink puppies
can be as high as 30% on farms.

30%

Every year, 5,000 mink are gassed on farms in the Czech Republic.

10,000,000 foxes are electrocuted on farms worldwide every year.

90 000 000

Around the world, 90,000,000 animals are killed for their fur every year.

*Ban on fur-farming
*Indirect ban on fur-farming
*Ban on farming some species for their fur
We say no

A majority of Czechs supports a ban on fur-farming.

(in 2001, norms for
fox fur farming became
so restrictive that it made fur
farming practicaly impossible;
since 2000, no fox fur farms
have appeared.)

You have let your friends see it. You have let the minister see it.
You have let the government see it.
You friends have shared it.
The minister has received more than 20 000 emails.
What has the government done? Nothing.

Position of the
Minister for Agriculture:

For now, The Ministry of Agriculture can find no rational arguments for supporting ban on fur farming in the Czech Republic. The Ministry of Agriculture will, in cooperation with the SVA, continue to pay special attention to this sensitive matter.

The answer of The Regional Veterinary Administration:

According to the § 42 of the administrative procedural law, we examined the situation and found no reasons to initiate administrative proceedings.

Position of the State Veterinary Administration:

In 2012, all the inspections have already been carried out, and it is necessary to point out that no violations of the Animal Protection Act have been found. … regarding the past events, in 2013 inspections will be carried out more often, at least twice a year and both during and beyond the skinning season. And every suspicion of animal abuse announced on the State Veterinary Administration will be examined.

So we will let the government see it again.

Right now
