Close Down Cruel, Filthy Fur Farm


Target: Laurent Lessard, Minister of Quebec Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks

Goal: Close a large fur farm with a notoriously long history of animal abuse

Recently, Montreal’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) decided to investigate a fur farm in Montérégie after hearing about its alleged cruelty towards animals. This comes as no surprise, since the owner, Jean-Luc Rodier, has been previously found guilty of 32 counts of negligence in the past.

His farm, which raises dozens of foxes and mink for their fur, is allegedly filled with animals living in tiny, filthy cages that are soiled with excrement. They frequently may not have access to fresh water and are starving or hungry. Supposedly, many are also severely injured and suffer greatly before being gassed or electrocuted as part of the fur removal process.

As a result of such atrocities, the SPCA has already asked the government to take action. Wild animals, like foxes and mink, are under the jurisdiction of Quebec’s Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks. Yet, the ministry has been slow to intervene. Although inspectors visited the establishment recently, most of the animals still remain on the farm. Tell the Quebec Ministry of Forest and Wildlife to take the necessary measures to officially shut down the Montérégie farm. These animals have already suffered through enough.


Dear Laurent Lessard, Minister of Quebec Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks,

The Montérégie fur farm, owned and run by Jean-Luc Rodier, has a long history of animal abuse. The notorious establishment raises dozens of foxes and mink each year in horrible living conditions. Frequently, these animals do not have an adequate source of food or water. Many also suffer from several types of illness or injury, ranging from broken toes to missing eyes.

The Montreal’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has already asked the government to take action to stop these inhumane practices. Wild animals like foxes and mink are under the jurisdiction of Quebec’s Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks. Yet, the ministry has been slow to respond. Although thorough inspections have been conducted, most of these animals still remain on the farm. I urge you to step up. Push for the official closure of the Montérégie fur farm. The future of these innocent animals is at stake.

    Shut down this abusive nightmare.

  2. These filthy disgusting places need to be monitored and shut down if they are deemed filthy and ate abusive and cruel to the animals.

  3. Abolish all fur farms and ban the wearing of any fur products in public.

  4. what to do is when these places are exposed, you take the owners and workers who contributed to this and MAKE THEM EXPERIENCE THE SAME HORRORS…FILM IT and tell others that if they allow it THEY will feel it!!

  5. sherry compton says:

    Enough with animal cruelty. Fur farms are a horror from the past especially with mentally sick owners who cause suffering!

  6. Emily March says:

    There are enough alternatives to real fur, and they last a lot longer. How come ‘fur farms’ have not be outlawed everywhere, anyway?… Seems to me a reasonably civilized thing to do…

  7. Deborah Craig says:

    If you’ve ever seen a video of fur farms it’s enough to put anyone with morals off of fur and sear into your mind images that won’t leave: animals that are used to roaming for miles are stuffed into filthy cages stacked atop one another, where they go mad pacing a tiny wire space and being shit upon by those above them; to have their life ended by anal electrocution. Abominible.

  8. Keeping wild animals in tiny bokses for life time to be killed for their fur should be banned all over! But when celibrities and queens still fancy to dress with dead animals fur, the demand will go on. There is a job to be done, to make the users feel guilty about their support to animal cruelty.And the politicians i charge must be convinced that this business is a criminal trade..

  9. It is not just the industries that are at fault, it is humanity also at fault. If no one wore fur coats, there would be no need for these industries to prosper.

    Every woman looks ugly in fur.

    Also, if people went vegan no harm would come to these innocent animals living on factory farms. I never wear fur and I never eat meat. I remember when growing up all the mothers had a fur coat and handed down to children. I never wanted a fur coat and refused one for free. I hated them then and I hate them now.

    • Jane Morrow says:

      You couldn’t pay me to wear fur. If anyone offered me a fur coat I’d bury it – same goes for ivory jewellery.

  10. Hey, this is Canada. We’ve been fighting the seal hunt every year and will be doing it again next year. Don’t expect too much from this petition.

  11. nikki halper says:

    This practice must be stopped. What these people are doing is an act of unbelievably cruel and unnecessary treatment of animals just to obtain their fur for profit. Never had a fur coat never wanted one and never will want one. Shut these fur farms down. Help these innocent animals. So sad.

  13. Me dejo de llamar Yolanda Williamson si estos criminales continuan con esta aberracion. La fuerza contra la crueldad animal esta creciendo a nivel mundial, es hora de la redencion para los animales, tenemos que salir en masa a la calle y protestar, olvidense de abogaduchos ni leyes! los animales nos necesitan ya!

  14. No reason for anyone to wear fur – PERIOD !!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Irena Franchi says:

    Close Down Cruel, Filthy Fur Farm.

  16. Another CANADA animal abuse outrage. Does CANADIAN GOVERNMENT have no control over these abominations. WHY don’t you prosecute this HORRID ABUSE, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!!
