They are killed by internal electrocution or poisoned. The rabbit farmers take care not to damage the animals fur. Fur farmers argue that cruelty is not imposed on the animal during the operation. They say that any physical abuse to the animal during the process would make the animals fur useless. The animal, which is normally 10 to 12 weeks old, suffers a painful death, but at least the precious fur is protected.

Rabbits raised for their fur lead miserable lives in cramped and overcrowded conditions, often suffer from injuries inflicted by their cage-mates, and many die early deaths from their injuries. Rabbits raised for fur is a fiercely debated topic between fur advocates and animal rights groups such as the Animal Liberation Front.

Do a video search for farms and you can see first hand the conditions that these condemned animals live in.

It takes 30-40 rabbits to make ONE coat. These animals are raises and killed inhumanly. They are often killed between 10-12 weeks old.

To make a single fur coat, it can take in the range of thirty to forty rabbit hides. This number is more for other animals.

They are killed for food and fur.

Depending on the size of the coat and length it could take anywhere from 20-30 for smaller shorter coats to 50 plus for larger longer lenght coats.

Millions of animals are killed each year for their fur. Every year in France, over 70 million rabbits alone are killed for their fur to make coats.

Generally no. The fur grows on the sheep while it is alive, and is simply shaved off so the coat can regrow.

If killed by humans, seals are used for their fur and sell fur coat in the black market. By other animals, seals are killed for food.

No because rabbits are warm blooded and have a dense coat of fur and are completely fine inside a house :)

The rabbits' fur coat is very good at insulating the rabbits skin. Once the rabbits' body temperature heats up the coat, the coat will stay warm like a blanket that just came out of the dryer. The fur is the main way they stay warm.The other way is snuggling next to each other for warmth. All the heat is shared between the rabbits. They feel warm, happy, and cozy!

Sadly many animals get killed for their fur. But the most common include minks, possums, foxes, sheep, and rabbits.

rabbits have fur because the fur is used to keep the rabbits warm

Yes the mink is usually killed by a licensed trapper then the fur is sold to a coat maker.

NO! No, but they will pull their fur out from their neck area, to make a nests for their kittens (baby rabbits).

If you mean lose their fur then I can help you. Rabbit lose their fur when they moult. Moulting happens about twice a year and is when the old fur dies and falls out, but it is replaced with new fur. Rabbits have 2 types of coat: a thick one for winter, and a thinner one for summer. The winter coat is darker and the summer coat is lighter, because light colour reflect the heat so the rabbit won't get too hot.

yes. they are born naked but mammals such as rabbits are born with a fur coat.

The colour and appearance of a rabbit's fur coat depends on its genes, and its genes depend on its parents.

User Avatar

Yes, as they have a coat of fur for protection. If you search the Internet you may also find pictures of rabbits in the snow.

Sometimes but not always. Some people eat rabbit (feet) so they are killed for food. Hunters also might want to kill them for a hunting accomplishment, but most of the time, rabbits are not the main victim to be killed for fur. Mostly bears are killed for their fur (fur coats).

The number of animals it takes to make a fur coat depends on the size of the animal and the size and style of the coat. It can take 30 to 50 mink to make a coat, but only 2 or 3 seals.

Rabbits should never be given baths. Getting a rabbits coat completely wet will ruin its fur. Rabbits are much like cats in that they bathe themselves.

Rabbits shed (or molt) as a natural process just like cats and dogs do. In the winter they put on a warm thick coat which is shed of to a thinner sleek glossy coat in the summer.
