Starving Foxes Were Left To Die At A Fur Farm Are Now Clearly Glad Rescuers Came And Saved Them

by Fhilcar

Not one animal here on this planet deserves to be treated inhumanely. But sadly, there are a lot of abusive individuals who have been treating animals with much cruelty.

This story portrays how abusive people can get toward helpless animals. Around 50 foxes including raccoons were abandoned and left to starve at a fur farm in Durzyn, a village in Krotoszyn County, Greater Poland Voivodeship.

The helpless and heart-breaking situation was discovered by locals living near the area when they saw more than twelve foxes wandering around the village area.

Alarmed by what they thought (these foxes escaped from the fur farm), they then tipped the authorities from the Polish animal rights organization Otwarte Klatki (Open Cages) to help these animals. Good thing help came before everything was too late.

The sight was unimaginable as most of the foxes died already of thirst and hunger. There were remnants too of those dead foxes that were electrocuted. That is the usual method which they use in killing foxes at fur farms.

The poor and helpless animals were still in cages embracing the dead bodies of their friends, and some tried to bore holes by biting the wires as hard as they could so they could at least escape from that kind of hell.

It can be recalled that those who tried and were able to escape from their cages in the fur farm bit the wires with all their might to make holes so they could fit in those and flee from their helpless condition.

Here's Bogna again, one of the rescuers with one of the rescued foxes.

The Otwarte Klatki activists found out later on that the fox farm's owner was jailed. Hence, he left the animals with their caretaker, who did not do his job.

Instead, the caretaker left the animals starving.

Everyone who saw all of the animals' conditions was speechless. To say that it was horrific is an understatement.

Luck was still on their side as the animals received the help they needed. Sadly, many of them could no longer stand and died.

Now, these foxes are under the care of their rescuers and are free from the nightmare. Thank goodness!
