finnish fur farm investigation

Finnish animal rights group Oikeutta Eläimilla investigated 10% of all fur farms in Finland. What they found was shocking, but not surprising if you have seen the images from other countries such as Denmark or Norway.

Djurens rätt har samlat in bildmaterial från cirka 80 eller tio procent av pälsfarmerna i landet. Största delen av materialet kommer från områden där det finns många pälsfarmer.

Materialet inkluderer optagelser fra mange såkaldt "certificerede farme", farme der tilsyneladende skulle have udemærket sig ved at have en høj dyrevelfærd. Undersøgelsen indeholder optagelser fra mere end 20 certificerede farme og noget af den værste dyremishandling er fundet på disse farme.

The material released by the activists of the finnish group Oikeutta Eläimilla includes footages of many "certified" farms. These farms are supposed to have very high standards of animal welfare. Some of the worst cases of animal abuse in the finnish fur industry were reportedly found in these farms.
