Closing fur shop

The world’s largest fur auction house says it will close its doors for good within the next three years, in yet another dramatic setback for this cruel trade that contributes to unnecessary suffering and death for millions of animals worldwide each year.

Kopenhagen Fur, founded in 1930, acts as a broker for fur pelts produced in Denmark, where it is based, and around the world. As we’ve been reporting, the past few years have seen steep drops in pelt prices and stockpiles left unsold at fur auctions and against this backdrop, news of the closure appears as imminent as it is welcome.
