England: Latest ‘Fur News’ From ‘Respect for Animals’.

Latest ‘fur news’ from Mark and the crew at ‘Respect for Animals’, Nottingham, England.

———————————————————–

 

Probably unlikely, but we are taking measures in advance:

This year nearly 80,000 seal pups, less than 3 months old, were brutally clubbed or shot for their fur. Worryingly in the UK, there is a risk that seal product imports could resume once we leave the EU.

Respect for Animals is asking the government to guarantee that this import ban will remain in force.

Good News from Germany

Germany’s last fur farm will close down with a new Bill enforcing stricter regulations and effectively make fur farming of mink non-viable for farmers.

Fantastisch!

Thank you Germany.

 

Fur Farming In Europe

The fur farming ban has been effective in the UK for over 15 years now.

We were proud to have led that campaign and many of you helped make it possible.  today, we use our experience and campaigning record to support campaigns in countries around the world where similar bans are being proposed and who look to the UK as an example to be followed.

It takes up to 40 dumb animals to make a fur coat

– BUT ONLY ONE TO WEAR IT !

Fur is for animals.

Thank you for your support.
