Finnish animal activists' video uncovers hugely overweight farmed foxes

The animal rights group Oikeutta eläimille has published photos and video shot at five Finnish farms showing what appear to be abnormally overweight farmed blue foxes. The video shows caged, silver-coated foxes so overweight they appear to have difficulty moving around their cages. After seeing the video, a Finnish Fur Breeders' Association spokesperson says they've asked the activists for details about where they filmed the animals so that veterinarians can be sent to check out conditions onsite.
