Among the animals destined for the fur trade are sables , a mammal that inhabits the forests of northern Asia and eastern Europe. In Russia, sable fur is considered among the most valuable.
Right in Russia a girl named Zhenya saved a sable destined to become fur, and today lives under the same roof as her.
Zhenya had learned about the sale of a sable on a farm that supplied animals for the fur market. She was determined to save him from a terrible fate and negotiated a price to purchase the animal from the farm.
The sable, practically born in captivity, could not be released into the wild , as it was incapable of obtaining food independently and defending itself from other predators.
That’s why the sable now lives in the house with the girl.
Zhenya stated that it is not easy to live with a sable ; in fact, the animal still retains instincts and behaviors that are difficult to manage in an apartment like the one where Zhenya lives: sables are excellent climbers and love to “steal” objects.
Furthermore, the zebel adopted by the young woman, who is a female specimen, suffered traumas that still affect her today.
However, life with a sable at home holds many surprises: struck by the charm of this animal, Zhenya decided to open an Instagram account where the protagonist is undoubtedly her “sable”.
In the wild, sables live on fir, pine, and birch trees , trees typically found in northern Asia and eastern Europe. They build dens near rivers and in the thickest parts of the woods
It is truly cruel that animals are still involved in the fur market. More and more brands, companies and testimonials decide to take a stand against the use of animals in clothing , but there is still a long way to go!
