Ban the sale of all fur products in the UK and European Union. This week the International Fur Federation boasts that it's trade of shame is worth 29 Billion Euros runs an article entitled ‘ We have banned fur farming on ethical grounds in the UK so why do we still allow businesses to sell it? The clear evidence that fur farms are universally cruel is widely accessible across the internet. Furthermore in China and other SE Asian countries where there are little or no anti-cruelty laws animals are still skinned alive. Much of this fur actually comes from dogs and cats.
We have no way of regulating or controlling this industry or telling the origins of imported fur - the overwhelming probability is that any fur product for sale in the EU right now has come from an animal that has suffered great cruelty. European Commission prove to us your progressive intentions and ban the import, production and sale of fur products across the whole of Europe.
