I don't work for PETA or anything and to be honest I don't think they're doing a good job at what they're trying to do but hear me out for a second.
I'm sure many of you have heard of fur farms and I'm sure many of you agree that it is unethical. I recently got the shock of my life when I found out that fur farms aren't illegal and I think we should sort it out. I'm talking more specifically about farming foxes, minks and rabbits.
There are a lot of misconceptions about fur farming including one that many believe, the animals are not skinned alive and are actually usually electrocuted (which I'm pretty sure is mainly painless). On some farms they are gassed which is as horrific as it sounds, but luckily it isn't very common.
However, the conditions these animals live in look like what you might expect from some kind of historical documentary looking back on our cruel ancestors. That's what you would think if they were people. Just because they're animals doesn't mean that they don't have rights, which it is illegal to take from them. So tell me, why is it suddenly okay to do it to "vermin" and "pests"?
When I'm old enough, I'm going to try my best to fix this and hopefully make fur farms illegal.
If you want to do the same, a good place to start is to stop buying natural fur. This includes natural lashes and many unexpected things.
As I said, I'm not into politics or controversial animal rights activists who don't know what they're doing, but this is something we need to change.
For fox sake (pun intended).
There are some great shelters out there who are trying their hardest to save lives like these, but they can't do it without support.
I've linked the YouTube channel for SAVEAFOX below and it would be a great help if you could check it out:
