Shocking footage shows arctic foxes being raised from cubs in cramped cages before they are electrocuted to death at seven-months-old for the fur trade. Over 110,000,000 animals are killed on fur farms every year according to Animal Defenders International (ADI), an animal protection charity.

The organisation placed hidden cameras on a Polish fur farm to give a rare insight into the fur trade.

The film, called A Lifetime, follows the lives of a family of foxes, focusing on three cubs named Borys, Eryk and Aleska. Throughout the video, the cubs are kept in a small wire cage until the day of their death.The video starts as the cubs are nursed by their mother and baby Aleska takes her first halting steps. After a few weeks their mother is removed and the growing cubs explore their small world and play together.
