Thankfully these dear sweet creatures have been saved; but how many suffered and died for vanity and profit before them? And how many more atrocities are still being inflicted on others still awaiting their fate? Sadly too many, as even one is one too many. While death (harvesting!) is inflicted on these poor creatures in the most callous and harrowing way – many being skinned alive, this barbaric industry still continues in this the 21st century! And worse than that are the people who keep this trade flourishing by buying fur products in any form. Shame on you all for you vanity, greed, and cold callous hearts, and those who have the power to change the law and don’t. May God forgive you for I certainly won’t.
Chinchillas are naturally found in rocky crevices and can jump as high as one meter. They need to be active and hence suffer intensely when bred on farms for their fur.
On fur farms everything is aimed to reap maximum profit. There is no regard for the animals’ well-being, as they are merely seen as raw material waiting to be harvested (killed). They are routinely confined to small, wire-mesh cages and kept in a battery style system. With several animals in a cage there is barely room to move let alone space for activity.
On fur farms Chinchillas will never jump or play.
It was a lucky day for a few of these innocent creatures when PeTA learned that a chinchilla breeder in California was planning on electrocuting hundreds of animals if she couldn’t sell her business.
Here is a video of a discussion with this farmer.
