Recent reports show that clothes made of fur from mink, fox, lynx, coyote, even hamsters are being legally sold right here in the UK. 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.

I’ve always been deeply disturbed by the idea of killing animals just for their fur, and that’s why I’ve been campaigning against the fur trade for more than 20 years. I can’t bear to think of the suffering experienced by animals just like people’s cats and dogs that are killed for their fur.

A recent article in the Independent revealed that one online retailer is even selling a coat made from killing and skinning 100 hamsters and I 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 is legal. The law must change.

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.

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