Anti-Fur Movement a Factor in Fur Prices

The poor economy is not the only factor driving fur prices. Scott Robertson, the owner and manager of Robertson Trading Post in La Ronge, Saskatchewan, Canada, says the anti-fur movement has heavily influenced the fashion industry in North America, which directly affects the price of fur:

“We’ve convinced everybody that you are a bad guy if you wear fur,
something akin to being a slave trader or drug pusher. You’re a bad guy
if you are a trapper and you’re a bad guy if you’re a buyer and the
truth is nothing could be further from the truth.”

Robertson details the effects of the fur industry’s decline in an article in The Prince Albert Daily Herald. He credits much of  the decline to the anti-fur lobby.
