Presentation of the themeI chose the theme of the defense of animals against the breeding of fur factory farms to denounce the living conditions of these animals. Animals are put in cage sometimes for them whole lives in unhealthy places. The methods used on fur factory farms are designed to mazimize profits, always at the expense of the animals. The anguish and frustration of life in a cage leads many animals to self-mutilate and even cannibalize their cagemates. Animals have no protection from bone-chiling cold, driving rain, or sweltering heat. Parasites and disease run rampant on fur farms, making these animals’lives even more unbearable. The fur farmers care only about preserving the quality of the fur, they use slaughter methods that keep the pelts intact but that can result in extreme suffering for the animals.
• The consumers of clothes in furs must know that the fur farmers don’t respect regulations in the conditions of breeding which is to make sure of a good state of health and maintenance for animals.

Over seven months, 30 fur farms, seven hours of footage and one and a half thousand photographs, Animal Defenders International investigated a random sample of Finnish fur farms.
