PICS: Foxes Snuggling Up in a Bed of Donated Furs

Posted by on November 29, 2012 | Permalink

The fur industry is one of the most barbaric and bloody on the planet, causing millions of animals untold suffering every single year. So it warms our hearts to see former fur-wearers donating their coats to us to be put to good use – in this case, as bedding to comfort injured and orphaned animals.

The Fox Project in Kent takes in and nurtures hundreds of red foxes who have been injured or orphaned because of hunting, traffic accidents and “pest” control. PETA UK has sent this wildlife hospital some fur coats to keep its guests warm this winter.

Please take a few minutes to watch Eva Mendes’ hard-hitting video about the fur industry. And if you have any fur coats that you would no longer be caught dead in, donate them to us, and we’ll make sure that the animals who suffered for them did not die in vain.
