Oregon Fur Farms

shut them down!
It's no different if its a dog or a fox or a rabbit or a mink.
No living creature should have to live and die in such an atrocious manner.

There were 18 fur farms in Oregon in 2007, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service.
Polite letters are not so appreciated. Uprooting the fabric of a unethical and murderous business, much more appreciated.
