An Ethical Critique of Fur Factory Farming (The Palgrave Macmillan Animal Ethics Series) (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Andrew Linzey, Clair Linzey
The fur trade is a multi-million-dollar industry. It is estimated that over 100 million animals are killed in fur farms worldwide annually. This book provides an in-depth analysis of the state of fur factory farming worldwide, and an ethical critique of the main arguments propounded by the fur industry. Consideration is also given to an attempt to justify fur farming through the concept of “Welfur.” Andrew Linzey and Clair Linzey argue that from any ethical perspective, fur factory farming fails basic moral tests.
