Harrowing new footage has emerged showing obese 'monster foxes' bred for their fur in shocking conditions on farms in Finland.

The horrifying video, part of an undercover investigation, shows dangerously overweight animals with huge pelts and rolls of folded skin locked up in cramped cages.

Activists say the bloated silver foxes are being bred up to five times their normal weight for the lucrative fur market. Wildlife expert Chris Packham has described the footage, captured in western Finland, as 'heartbreaking'.

The video, released by Finnish campaign group Oikeutta eläimille (Animal Justice), purports to show conditions at a 'high-welfare' farm. But animals are shown with rolls of fat while some have weeping eye conditions and deformed feet.
