There are around 800 fur farms in Poland, where more than eight million animals are imprisoned and killed. PETA has taken pictures of five of these farms, from 2016, showing shocking animal suffering. By keeping in tiny wire cages, foxes go crazy, constantly turning in circles and scratching desperately on the cage walls. The grid wires of the cage floors lead to swollen and inflamed paws in the animals. Diseases such as swollen palate obviously are not treated. Due to the systematic animal suffering, a bill has now been introduced in the Polish parliament to ban fur farms.
Poland has become the second largest fur producer in Europe in recent years, after Denmark. However, systematic research on the farms had repeatedly documented cannibalism, injuries, behavioral problems and deceased animals on farms across the country.
Bill for a fur farm ban
After the draft bill for a fur farm ban has been discussed in the Polish parliament until the end of 2017, the vote is still pending. More than 25,000 supporters together with PETA appealed to those responsible to follow the example of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Great Britain, Croatia, the Netherlands, Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Austria and ban fur farms.
The majority of Poles want a fur farm ban
According to polls by the opinion research institute GfK in 2017, 67 percent of Polish citizens are already in favor of a fur farm ban.

And I say: It has always amazed me: although almost all fur farms in Germany have been closed (not by itself, but with the fight of the animal rights activists) I have always seen brainless women on the street wearing expensive fur parts.
Why that? From where? I thought.
Therefore! Now I know that! from the nice neighbor, who will soon see his Dachau being shot. Times have changed, and Poland needs to find other means to get the money.
Best regards to all, Venus
