Siouxsie Sioux for the Legendary LYNX
There is a fantastic article on the legacy of LYNX, the anti-fur organization that brought down the fur-farming industry in England, starting in the 1980′s in the Sadbury Mercury. LYNX was possibly the first organization to use hard-hitting ads, celebrities and models in their efforts, setting the tone for organizations that followed.
Fur farming in Britain never recovered from the body-blow Lynx dealt it and was outlawed in 2003. Consumer attitudes to the wearing of fur were also changed irrevocably. It is no longer seen as acceptable on any meaningful scale.
Lynne Kentish, who lives in Bury St Edmunds, looks back on Lynx’s achievements with enormous pride.
