Is fur farming banned in the UK?
YES – From 2000; a really great move by the UK government;
Prior to the ban, there were 11 fur farms in the UK, producing up to 100,000 mink skins each year. The act only extends to England and Wales.
Fur farming was later prohibited in Scotland by the Fur Farming (Prohibition) (Scotland) Act 2002.

Shocking suffering revealed on Canadian mink fur farm.


A recent article in the Independent revealed that a UK retailer is selling a coat made from killing and skinning 100 hamsters and we all often see hats with real fox fur pompoms and coats with collars made with coyote fur. All of these animals, slaughtered cruelly for fashion.

As the law stands, imports of fur are legal. The law must change. The import and sale of fur is allowed even though the main ways fur is obtained, including fur farming, are banned in Britain.

Killing animals just for their fur is cruel and barbaric, and we must stop funding it by banning imports of real fur immediately.

Fur import bans have been successfully implemented elsewhere. There is a EU-wide ban on the import of domestic cat and dog fur and California is considering a ban on the sale of real fur.

The UK should take a lead and become the first country in the world to ban fur imports.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with change.org to launch this petition as part of our new Fur-Free UK campaign.

Using the hashtag #FFUK , we’re telling the fur trade what we really think about their barbaric industry.

Please sign our petition to help end this senseless cruelty to animals.
