This is often how organic and free-range egg-layers live - not the bucolic farm you might imagine. And keep in mind that all the male chicks are destroyed at the hatcheries that supply these places. The boys don’t lay eggs and aren’t profitable to raise for “meat type” birds. Please share - people have such illusions of what free-range looks like.
free range is bullshit.
We CANNOT allow these buyers to ignore the connection between the items they’re seeing draped over models and the fur-bearing animals being used & abused to create them. Purchasing decisions for the fall/winter 2012 season are being made as we speak. NOW is the time for another huge push.
lol there’s no way those bottom two animals came from a fur farm. They’re so mangy and beat up that their skins would sell for a pittance, meaning the farmer would have lost money on them. You can’t run a business selling pretty skins if your skins are covered in bleeding open sores, it wouldn’t work.
It makes me so mad when I see images like the dogs here paired with fur trade cruelty. There are plenty of instances of fur farms/traders doing things that are unethical and abusive..but using shocking images that are unrelated to the actual event, like is being done here, is also unethical. Those aren’t fur trade dogs. They might be strays that are being brought to a vet or shelter, or maybe they’re being sold for food, or maybe taken away from an abusive home. There’s no way to tell based on the information being provided.
I almost never (actually this may be my first) reblog my own posts, but I want to address the serious claims made above. As you can see, I linked the source of these photos in my original post (click the words “used & abused”). These photos are both from undercover investigations on fur farms. You can find more here.
Animals are routinely abused on fur farms, both abroad and in the United States. Whether they are trapped in the wild or raised and neglected in cages like the poor babies above, they are losing their lives for a bloody, unnecessary trade.

“A bull or steer that apparently wasn’t too keen to be led to slaughter broke free and caused quite a scene in Queens on Wednesday…A student emailed video of the scene to MyFoxNY.com. Two men, one still wearing a slaughterhouse cover-up, were finally able to wrestle the animal to the ground before any more damage was done…”
Story and video of slaughterhouse workers wrestling him to the ground outside a CUNY building here: Bull Loose in Queens
Full version of the first video:
So sad. Two of the cows I’ve met at Farm Sanctuary came from slaughterhouses in Queens.
Their stories had much happier endings, though. Here’s the story of one of them, Maxine:
Here’s a quote I really like from this video. It explains the amazing phenomena of how runners like these cows make national headlines and get people rooting for them despite the billions of animals that are slaughtered everyday, unnoticed by the public at large:
“It’s interesting how the public responds when one individual animal makes a run for her life: they end up making headlines on national news… When people are able to identify with an individual [animal] and look her in the eye and see that she is a living, feeling being who has a will to live, then people care.”
Rise of the Planet of the Apes opens in theaters everywhere Friday, August 5.
Technology, such as CGI and motion capture software, allows “animals” in the film industry to exist without the exploitation of real, live animals. I hope everyone goes out and supports this film.

This really is the food of the gods, this recipe makes a huge batch. It can be served solo as well, as it is Awesome! It can be frozen for 4 weeks, super nutritious, blend it up and add more stock to make a warm winter soup. Oh gods, It’s just so delicious!
