Fur Free Friday: Finnish Embassy gets protest against breeding oversize foxes for fur trade

Nov 24, Black Friday was also Fur-Free Friday this year. Here in DC, animal rights activists descended on the Finnish Embassy, demanding an end to a breeding program to produce foxes up to 5 times their normal body weight for the fur trade. These “Frankenfoxes” can barely stand or move due to their excessive weight, but the fur industry cares for nothing but profits.
