The killing of rabbits for their fur is the fastest growing part of the global fur trade yet little is known about it. 50 million animals are slaughtered worldwide each year for their fur but this figure does not even include rabbits as accurate figures are hard to come by.

Around the world most systems of animal factory farming - such as battery hen cages, farrowing crates for pigs, 'veal' crates, foie gras production, mink fur farming - have been the subject of detailed scientific studies, campaigns by animal rights groups and even government bans. Meanwhile, the factory farming of rabbits for their fur and flesh has received little attention …. until now.

The Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade (CAFT) have infiltrated and exposed this hideous trade. A trade where millions of rabbits are confined to bare wire cages, kept as breeding machines, their throats slit and their furs turned into boots, hats, gloves and trim for jackets.

Travelling across four European countries, infiltrating rabbit farms, slaughterhouses, dressing companies, manufacturers and retailers - CAFT can now expose the reality of the rabbit fur trade.
