Every single animal you have ever eaten had feelings, hopes, dreams, and a unique personality.
Every single animal brought into this world for the sole purpose of exploitation has a story.
Like male chicks ground alive on the day they are born, their story can be very brief.
Or like dairy cows that are repeatedly and forcibly impregnated and milked to the point where they can no longer bear calves to be taken from them on the day they are born, where their bodies can no longer produce milk efficiently.
Their stories are longer.
What they all have in common, however, is that their stories are very tragic stories.

Terrible animal suffering revealed on huge Polish fur farm
“This is a shocking investigation. The suffering of these animals can scarcely be imagined.
I personally know what impact seeing these atrocities first hand and close up can have.
As the undercover activist says in the video, some of the things he has seen will live with him forever.
I still live with some of what I saw in UK fur farms more than 20 years ago and it is not easy, but is certainly one of the things that has driven me on to work to end this disgusting industry.”
Mark Glover, Respect for Animals
Respect for Animals’ colleagues at the Fur Free Alliance, Otwarte Klatki, have today released the results of a two-month long investigation using an activist as an undercover farm employee.
The farm in Goreczki is potentially the biggest mink farm in the world, with around 500,000 animals kept in small cages.
The worker documented shocking cases of cannibalism, open wounds and untreated sick animals. He also recorded the reality of working conditions on fur farms: low wages, little training and lack of employment rights. This is of real importance because the fur trade is currently trying to reimage itself as sustainable and ethical. These claims are lies and this investigation is further evidence of the moral bankruptcy of the fur industry.
The undercover activist, called Yevhen, used a phone and hidden camera to document the distressing conditions on the mink farm.
Yevhen agreed to openly speak on camera about his experiences. The activist describes dead mink found every day in cages, and the shocking “hospital” – supposedly for sick animals, but where they did not receive veterinary help, instead simply killed by gassing or dying untreated and in agony.
This is the reality of industrial fur factory farming. This is why fur farming must be banned.
Add your name to this letter to the Polish Embassy, calling for fur farming to be banned:
The African elephants in the Wuppertal Zoo are abused for commercial purposes.
In order to generate additional income, Wuppertal Zoo offers guided tours behind the scenes and interactions with the elephants.
The elephants are forced to take part in photoshoots, elephant rides, weddings, and other events.
They are made compliant with the elephant hook. The elephants only obey because they are afraid of punishment.
Zoo director Arne Lawrenz announced in January 2019 that he would end the use of the elephant hook and switch elephant husbandry to “protected contact” after renovation work, but without giving a specific schedule.
So far, however, the elephants are still exposed to violence and defenseless. Since then, three more baby elephants have been born. Gus, Tsavo, and Kimana now expect the same fate as their fellows.
Facit: The Wuppertal Zoo abuses elephants for special events such as weddings and guided tours behind the scenes. Among other things, the animals are forcibly forced to pose for photos with visitors or to carry visitors on their backs.
Please appeal to the mayor, the members of the city council, and the zoo to work for an end to elephant abuse.
