Undercover Video of Irish F. F. Farms

Fur Factory Farms Revealed

Undercover video and photographic footage from an anonymous source taken from inside all of the known fur factory farms in Ireland was released by ALiberation.

The footage shows stereotypical behaviour on all factory farms. This is a sign of extreme stress and frustration by the minks of having their essential needs forever suppressed.
Minks need to swim, climb, hunt, to be alone, to run and freedom. All of these needs are never met by fur factory farms.

The footage also highlights how the fur factory farmers can’t even meet the ridiculously low standards of laws that apply here.

Fur factory farms are built on animal exploitation and rights violations. Over 170,000 animals are killed each year in this country and will never be seen as anything more than a thing that grows fur by the fur factory farmers responsible.

ALiberation called again for the outlawing of fur factory farming in the Republic which would follow other countries like our closest neighbours Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England.


It was also pointed out that the Minister of Agriculture Brendan Smith is not fulfilling his duties by ignoring scientific reports.
Under the EC SI 127/2000 Regulations 2000 the minister is obliged to refer to Scientific reports such as the SCAHAW report.
