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.

*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.)
