Fur farm workers hit to death any minks still alive after being gassed in box

Mink that survived attempts to gas them to death were kicked or beaten to death with a metal rod at a Polish fur farm, investigators say.  

And inside the gas chamber, the animals took “several dozen seconds” to die, footage from secret cameras suggests.

Activists argue the UK is complicit in the cruelty by allowing real animal fur to be imported and sold on items from hood trims and hat bobbles to slippers.
