Chinese fur farms have become notorious for their cruelty. But did you know that this barbaric industry is also operating much closer to home? The UK, Austria, Croatia, Slovenia, and several other countries have already banned or are phasing out fur farming, but Ireland is yet to outlaw this horrific practice.

It's clear that the Irish public wants to see a ban implemented. A recent opinion poll showed that nearly 80 per cent of people in Ireland agree that farming and killing animals for their fur should be banned – and previous surveys have found similar consensus.

Wearing the fur of an animal who was forced to live in a cramped, filthy cage before his or her skin was torn off is a pretty gruesome fashion choice. The only "statement" it makes is that the wearer has a total lack of regard for animals' suffering.

Please write to Ireland's Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine to ask him to ban shameful fur farms in Ireland immediately.
