Good news comes from China, where 174 white foxes were freed from a fur farm thanks to the courage and support of the activists.
The hides market is losing more and more importance: veterinarians and those who consider it old-fashioned to wear coats, bags and gloves made of cages and reared animals cruelly slaughtered for their own fur sigh with relief!
The release of these animals was made possible thanks to the efforts of BoHe, a Chinese activist who also deals with 2,700 dogs rescued from the meat market, and Karen Gifford, an American activist. Thanks to the donations of hundreds of other people, the two women were able to save the white foxes from the breeding plant.
The farm said it was in competition for lack of revenue: after closure, the foxes would be sold to other farms or simply killed. The two women took advantage of the stalemate and were able to bring the foxes away.
Because the foxes were not raised in the wild, but only in a cage, they could not be released directly into the wild. For this reason, the activists took them to a Buddhist sanctuary in Mudanjiang Prefecture
The monks of the reserve did not hesitate when they heard of the foxes looking for shelter: they completely cleared their green spaces for the foxes. Here the foxes can return to their wild state.
After the euphoria to finally see the animals free and in their natural habitat, the two women started a new appeal: now we have to secure food for the foxes, so we need more donations.
The sanctuary is a temporary facility and will house the foxes until suitable shelter is built for them.
A gesture of courage on the part of the activists and the humanity of the monks and of all people who supported the mission with what they could give.
My comment: Hardly a fashion accessory is probably covered with such clichés as the fur. A fur coat is expensive. Who wears it, shows that he has the necessary change to buy it. Fur has always been one of the ultimate status symbols in the fashion industry.
China is currently the leading fur supplier, with 15 million martens dying there each year alone under unimaginably cruel conditions. Even dogs and cats have to give their lives for fur production there.
We’ve talked about it many times, and our goal is to make this cruel fur mafia public all over the world, to show what’s really going on.
We’ve had some modest successes so far, but the main goal is to show that fur production in China is a highly professional exploitation of animals, which works very good because the European and German clothing industries have a business pact for fur, leather and applications with China and all of these items are imported unchecked and despite prohibition, throughout Europe.
The more praiseworthy is the action of these animal rights activists who set an example for their country. Thus, the hope arises that the animal rights groups in Asia will soon create a foundation there …
We say, Thank you!!
Best regards to all, Venus
