A quick look inside a fox fur farm in Newfoundland and Labrador. While the feed for the foxes may not look too appetizing, it is amixture of real, local chicken scraps and a finely milled cereal imported from Nova Scotia. Some fur farmers also use fish offal in their feed mix. —Video by Ashley Fitzpatrick/The Telegram

    Nice to see video from inside a fur farm. Here in Nova Scotia there seems to be a cloak of secrecy surrounding them. The media talks of the environmental and economic impact.... but fails to even mention the animal welfare/humaneness (or lack of humaneness) of this sick industry.

    In todays day and age, I can't believe we allow a business like this to operate. Completely horrible. The fur farm should be closed.

    Rhonda, you have been on fox farms and witnessed this? Or watched a PETA video?

    You would never be allowed to keep dogs in such deplorable conditions, so why foxes? Or any animal for that matter. Disgusting.

    This industry, if you can call it that, is inhumane and should be stopped. We do not need animal furs for clothing, it's just plain sick, sick, sick. When are we going to wake up...

    These poor animals are bred in hellish conditions on fur farms. Even death does not come easy for them .They are reared in intensively small, filthy cages for their entire lives and bludgeoned with metal rods, hanged or skinned alive for their fur. Most of these animals are dragged from their dismal, filthy cages and have their feet and tails mercilessly chopped off before their skins are ripped out from their bodies In a fur farm, the objective is to reap maximum profit. The animals are treated as raw materials, not as living being who have needs or can feel pain and agony. They are often crammed in small cages, more than one per cage in order to cut costs. Most animals go insane undergoing these living conditions. They also self-mutilate, bite their tails or limbs, and resort to cannibalism All this suffering for a fur coat and profits Pretty sick!!

    I realize this industry gives employment, but I think it's wrong to raise these wild animals in captivity. They spend their whole life inside these small wire cages only to be put to death so someone can wear their fur. In my opnion it's cruel and inhumaine.
