Issue

Each year, millions of furbearing animals are trapped and killed under the auspices of "nuisance wildlife control" and millions more are killed in the name of fashion. Once an animal is caught in the indiscriminate and inhumane traps she may remain there for several days before starving, dying from exposure or chewing off her own paw to escape, only to die days later from the injury.

Response

Through a combination of grassroots and retailer campaigns, legislative advocacy, community/consumer education and courtroom litigation Born Free USA is working to put an end to cruel fur trade and curtail the myths that trapping is a humane, tightly regulated, selective, and necessary occurrence when, in actuality, it is exactly the opposite.
