Welcome to ThreeTn, we hope you like this article. When Zhenya found an online picture of a wild sable, she fell in love with it instantly and decided to learn more about it. It turns out that the animal has one of the world’s most expensive fur types. Because of its silky texture and range of colors from beige to black, the bloody fur industry finds it superior to that of other animals.
In Russia, as it is used to produce items such as bedspreads and even underwear, the market for sable fur is increasing. There are about 70 farms in the country, according to reports, raising and killing wild sable and other animals for their fur. And that was the fate seen on the internet by the cute animal Zhenya; to die and become the possession of someone else.

Zhenya, eager to do her part, set out to save the poor guy. “I finally learned that there was a chance to buy her out of a fur farm,” SAID’s woman. “Here she was going to die, so I wanted to save the little fella.”
Now, the two are living together to the fullest and enjoy life. Zhenya worked hard for it, though. “Umora has a personality that is difficult. It really took a toll on her to work on the fur farm, so she’s very emotional, sometimes even almost hysterical. Also, Umora is cheeky and loves to steal things. She is also very active and intelligent.
All things considered, Zhenya even advises against keeping a sable as a pet. “One has to go through a lot before they can start living with it comfortably,” she said. “It requires a lot of time and patience. It might even take a couple of years for you to begin to fully enjoy your life with it.”
In the wild, sables inhabit dense forests dominated by spruce, pine, larch, cedar, and birch in both lowland and mountainous terrain. Depending on the local landscape and food availability, their home territories vary from 4 to 30 square kilometers (1.5 to 11.6 sq mi) in length. If resources are limited, they can travel substantial distances from 6 to 12 kilometers (3.7 to 7.5 mi) per day in search of a bite.
Sables live in burrows on the banks of the river and in thick woods. They are good climbers of cliffs and trees, chasing mostly during the twilight hours, but becoming more active during the mating season during the day.
