Born Free USA today released Cruelty Uncaged: A Review of Fur Farming in North America. The 44-page report, which reviews statistics and legislative oversight of animals raised for their fur, names Idaho as the third-worst state in the nation for cruelty to “fur farmed” animals.
“The fur industry and its apologists want us to believe that fur farming is a humane, environmentally friendly, and highly regulated industry,” said Monica Engebretson, senior program associate with Born Free USA. “As this report demonstrates, nothing could be farther from the truth.”
