Dear Minister Greg Hands, Minister George Eustice and Ms. Margot James,
I am writing to express my full support for FOUR PAWS UK’s call for a ban on all fur sales in the UK.
I am completely opposed to the immense suffering caused to more than 100 million animals each year in the international fur trade. I support the campaign to ban fur imports to sales in the UK and create a #FurFreeBritain.
Inflicting cruelty on animals for frivolous fashion is deplorable. We should close our borders to this cruel trade, reflecting the view of more than 80% of Brits who believe that it’s unacceptable to buy and sell animal fur in this country. More and more countries are following the UK’s lead and banning fur farming: banning fur imports sales would once again show the UK as a world leader on animal protection.
Please commit, through the Brexit negotiations, not only to retain a UK import ban on cat, dog and seal fur, but also to establish a sales ban extend that import ban to cover the pelts of all animals killed for their fur.
