EXCLUSIVE: WARNING, GRAPHIC IMAGES: TV wildlife star Chris Packham described a ‘scene from hell’ as harrowing footage and pictures are captured by undercover investigators who had ‘never seen so much death in one place’.
Foxes are beaten, skinned and chucked on a heap before their fur is made into coats to be sold on the high street.
Aerial images of a farm in Asia show thousands of the animals strewn across the floor – some still alive – waiting to be carted off on the back of a lorry.
TV wildlife presenter and campaigner Chris Packham described it as “like a scene from hell” and one of the worst cases of animal cruelty he has witnessed.
More than 100 million animals are killed each year for their fur including mink, fox, raccoon dog, chinchilla and rabbit – three every second.
They typically spend their lives in one-metre-squared battery cages and are only moved twice – for weaning and on the day they die.
