Saga Furs does not support nor do we accept the breeding of oversized foxes.
We have seen the video released in the media by a Finnish animal rights group and, without commenting on its authenticity, have reached out to all certified farmers to ensure that their animals are being cared for according to the best possible standards.
Farms are inspected regularly by independent auditing companies, 3rd party inspectors and both Finnish and EU authorities. Following the publication of this video, we immediately inspected the four farms that were reportedly filmed and found no evidence that would suggest the presence of the animals in the video, or any mistreatment of the animals.
Saga Furs is the industry leader in sustainable farming practices as well as animal welfare. This is what our customers expect from us and this position has not and will not change.
In addition, the industry has engaged additional veterinarians and agreed to re-double its efforts to inspect all farms and practices, mandating that any farm found to be out of compliance will lose its certification.
We continue to commit to the industry, the fashion community and customers that farmers follow only the highest animal welfare standards and best farm management practices.
