20 Fur Disaster Near Moscow

Fur Disaster Near Moscow

Posted on March 12, 2011 by team

The condition of the breeding farm “Pushkinsky” can be described with one word – tragedy. The enterprise once could boast of 100 units of machinery, about 600 employees and 180.000 animals. Nowadays there is no money to run it, only 2 tractors, 140 employees and 10.000 animals. These are boring figures, the pictures will tell you more about the condition of the enterprise.

The food for the animals is enough for several weeks and there is no money to buy it. One may only imagine what’s going to happen when the food is over.

One black sable fur coasts about $1000. In a good condition, of course, that most of the animals can’t boast of.


Animals live in such sheds.

Many are destroyed and empty.

The workers are unique professionals, many are hereditary fur farmers. Many are here from the 80s. This month they are not going to receive their small salary, but they still work, not for money.

Feed-preparation house once could prepare 60 tons of food a day. Soon it will have no work at all.

There is a retail store near the enterprise. It once belonged to the farm, then it was bought out.

Terrifying video.

    So the tradegy is that this operation shrunk from 100 000 animals to 10 000 animals? I do not see the tradegy in it. Breedy animals simply for their fur is an atrocity. A decline in demand, leading to the bankruptcy of companies like this is only welcome in my eyes. Of course, it is likely that the remaining animals are not being treated properly, but that is a small price to be paid compared to continueing senseless animal cruelty in commerical scale like this.

      Exactly.. it’s only a good thing when nazi camps like these close for good.
      and those women can still find a honest job.. anything is better than doing the kapò in that sad place.

        I’d much rather see all you vegan hippies in cages. You live such sheltered lives and then want to act all high and mighty when you see an animal in a cage. Ive seen dairy and poultry farms in much worse condition than this. Lets not forget this is Russia, where many people live in worse conditions than these animals.

    Good riddance!

    there’s always a downside… fight animal cruelty, make people stop wearing fur and you will put someone out of his job.

      It is true what you guys are saying, it’s senseless to kill these small animals just for wearing a fur-jacket. But, look at the video’s title (for those who do not speak russian, it says: sables die beacuse of a lack of money), so these sables in the video die without any sense, there’s no money left, so the get burnt.

      • Andz says:

        They could be set free, and let nature decide their faith. In my country i have seen people burn live chicken claiming that their price was to low, that was horrible as well.

        • NeuroManson says:

          Problem is, most mustelids, unless they’re raised IN the wild, as wild animals, you can’t just dump them into the wild and expect them to survive. For example, ferrets raised as pets, cannot survive in the wild. They die from malnutrition within about a month or so.

      • Euch says:

        Killing the animals is the only possible solution here. They should use the remaining money to kill them in the most human way. Setting the animals free is no option, as these are carnivores that would upset any eco system they are unleashed upon. Obviously no zoo could cope with 10 000 sables, as cute as they are.

  4. OLUT says:

    Those furs just look better on the animals. I don’t wanna wear them, I want to HUG them.

    Besides, those finished products look out of style, old and dated.

    • OldBikr says:

      They are pretty vicious little beasts, completely untamable.
      I know they look cute but they would just bite you severely on their way to escape. They do not have the instincts that allow for good social skills, even with each other.

      Having said that though, I agree with you; they are very attractive little beasts.

  5. SovMarxist1924 says:

    Wearing fur (in the last century/present century) is a status/class thing. The Soviets who developed this industry were not Socialists.

  6. former_russian says:

    It would be fair to see these people dying slowly

  7. asteroid no. 444 says:

    No gray area here (in the comments).

  8. Bell Curve says:

    So I have question to all those people whining about people wearing fur… do you wear leather shoes? I bet you do. And do you think that leather grows on Leather Trees?

  9. OldBikr says:

    A quick relatively painless death is to be preferred to slow painful death by starvation. These animals have not lived in the wild and they don’t know how to manage it, releasing them is not an option.

    Life is cruel enough, without adding extra cruelty into it.

  10. Shut says:

    Very sad that humans caused so much pain and suffering to living beings. Maybe one day we will learn to treat the living, including ourselves, with love and respect. Humans suck. Enough said!

  11. Chip says:

    It’s sad to see that Eastern Europe is going to the dump. I’m not talking about the animals, but about the business. Unfortunately this is not the only business that’s going through hard times.

  12. Anti-Fur Society says:

    Any fur farm that goes down, or at least shrink down a bit is good news, and a nail in the coffin of this most repugnant industry. It was acceptable during the cavemen era when they ate raw meat and wore the animal skins to keep warm. In this day ‘n’ age when we can produce the most elegant materials for all seasons, build palaces and fly to the moon, to go around like a troglodyte shows that many have not evolved.
