From June to August, 2017 public inspections were covertly performed at five Southern Ontario fur factory farms. The recordings show criminal animal neglect in violation of the OSPCA Act and multiple violations of the NFACC (National Farm Animal Care Council) codes of practice. The video evidence was submitted to the OPSCA on Friday, January 26, 2018. The OSPCA investigation is being lead by officer Carol Vanderheide under case #0800120180119-19. Please contact her for more information: Phone: 1-888-668-7722 ext. 414 / Email: Cvanderheide@ospca.on.ca OR Contact KOALA at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Animals were witnessed living incages filled with feces, animals food mixed with urine and excrement, dead and injured animals, wounded animals, infestation of maggots and insects, rusting and dusty enclosures, and sludge pits emitting poisonous gas from the accumulation of the animals' waste. Similar releases of videos recorded inside fur farms abroad have lead to public outrage, political action, legislation change, and even the implementation of full bans on fur farmer. The most recent ban being passed in Norway leading to the closure of over 280 fur factory farms.
The below videos take you on a virtual tour of Ontario's fur farm industry and expose the failure of the OSPCA, the government, and the fur industry to ensure basic standards of care for animals or to enforce laws that govern animal welfare.
