Stop Torturing and Slaughtering Animals for Fur

Target: Tamara Finkelstein, Secretary of the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

Goal: Endorse ban on fur imports and sales across the United Kingdom.

A long-standing, destructive affront against animal welfare could finally be on its way out permanently in the United Kingdom (UK). In recent years, the countries of Great Britain (England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland) have placed a ban on fur farming. If a new proposal goes through, the UK could soon add abolishment of fur sales to its quest for stronger animal protections.

While certain products (such as furs from domesticated pets or seals) are prohibited from being imported, most other fur sales are still legal. Since leaving the European Union, the United Kingdom now has the authority to reverse course. Fashion designers have already lent their support to the effort. The UK government is asking for public input on potential bans for an industry that counts lifelong confinement in tiny cages and death by electrocution and gas chambers among its many atrocities.

Sign the petition below to support the United Kingdom in becoming the first large region in the world to end the promotion of these barbaric displays of animal cruelty for profit.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Finkelstein,

Death by gas, electrocution, lethal injection, and possibly even being skinned alive: such inhumane acts are often associated with past atrocities. Yet for millions of living beings, these horrors are a very modern reality. Sickening videos of torture and slaughter taking place on fur farms have shocked any person with a conscience. Every time the results of this bloodshed are displayed in shop windows, the images validate and glorify animal cruelty. Worse, the blood money given to these grotesque products enables and upholds an industry long past its place in a humane society.

You have touted how Britain has some of the world’s highest animal welfare standards. Help make the United Kingdom a true haven of humanity by at last abolishing fur sales and imports across the region.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. We do not need animal skins to keep warm. We have other options for warmth that do not harm or kill animals. These poor creatures are caged, tortured and abused before horrible methods of killing them. Where is our humanity? It’s the same as murdering animals just for the ‘fun’ of killing. Disgusting and appalling.

    • I totally agree with you Patricia….we do not need animals to stay warm. It seems these days animals are killed and tortured for human greed, and the animals are the ones that are suffering. I hope one day all animals can be free and the world will not be on this huge killing spree to eliminate all animals and wildlife. God please help them…..they are innocent and do not deserve this.

  2. Why is all the fur needed? I can see perhaps hundreds of years ago to keep warm, when there were not alternatives. However there are plenty of other ways to clothe ourselves and keep warm. Sick monstrous greed. Perhaps some of these monsters should have the same treatment that they infict on these poor animals.

  3. By the way, when Trump was President of the US,he weakened wildlife animal protection, so that the hunters (blood crazy zanies) can have their way. Also, Trump undid a law so that hunters and others can import (or export? I have to look into this) animal parts, skins for their collections. Trump’s son, is an avid blood thristy “hunter” (its been rumored that he took part in canned hunting, where a animal is confined in a cage like space; where the “hunter” sits on a high chair to kill the target. The animal is unable to flee, because it is caged in). Let’s make America Great Again–UNDER TRUMP’S WAY OF THINKING.

    • Gee-let’s not try to change President Trump’s way of thinking about animals and hunting-let’s just TURN OVER OUR COUNTRY TO COMMUNISTS AND FORCE EVERYONE TO TAKE EXPERIMENTAL DRUGS INTO THEIR BODIES OR LOSE THEIR CAREERS AND INCOME! Let’s let the government control our lives and kill unborn/born babies writhing in pain! Let’s have a shadow government led by a dementia patient.

  4. This is very wrong for killing any Animal s stop now cause GOD doesnt likeexil SO STOP NOW

  5. Abolition long overdue. I hope this petition works.

  6. 1000% Barbaric and Vile!

  7. Monica Lee Koski says:

    So wrong…and totally unneccessary with the many synthetic, man made alternatives available nowadays, that serve the same purpose and mimic the real thing, and do not involve the cruel torture, abuse, and murder of animals to attain! It only continues for the unacceptable reasons of human greed and profit, and a false sense of status…I certainly hope this petition, as well as the multitude of others, I have signed in the past, helps to end the horrific suffering of these innocent animals!

  8. Rose Coffey says:

    This needs to be stopped – if we don’t have enough man made materials to keep us warm and dry then we’ve got a REAL problem. The use of animal fur is barbaric.

  9. Debra Broach says:

    Greed has just taken over 24/7, 365 days of the year, of these businesses, corporations,industries politicians, lawmakers, court systems …. you name it. They have no shame, no compassion and definitely no hearts. The only thing consuming them is their greed, which will be costing their souls, heavily after their ….KARMA ….. kicks in. Not so much, just for their greed, but because of their way of getting it. Their treatment of animals (god’s creatures)is going to be their downfall. Its bad enough animals are killed, but to be so tortorous and horrific about it is just plain …. EVIL and such people will be paying the price for their actions. They better start realizing that. In this day and age … there is NO REASON!!! to kill animals for their fur. You people have reaped, now you are going to sow. Be aware of that and why.

  10. Michael Gannon says:

    Animal fur is dead as a useful industry! Faux fur provides more options and is less expensive! Not to mention that there is no inhumane animal abuse and killings!! Only the sickest designers and stores would carry real dead animal fur and should be shown for what and who they are!!!!

  11. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    BAN ALL FUR FARMING AND SALES IMMEDIATELY!

  12. Maria szubert says:

    Any form of torture should be under criminal law

  13. My heart breaks when I know this atrocity still goes on. Please help stop it.

  14. Kat Gonzalez says:

    What a disgrace some humans are!!! They cannot even see suffering in an animal. We need this to stop.

  15. Gerald Laert says:

    Exotic skins and fur market must end, if we want to spare animals from extremely cruel lives and death.

  16. Execute the mother fuckers who kill innocent babies!!See what it feels like to be at the end of the barrel!!Kill all animal murderers!!!

  17. I agree with every comment above. There is no reason for “fur farms” anymore. These animals are living, breathing beings who deserve to live like our domesticated animals. No one needs to have fur to keep warm. These animals deserve to live out in the open an nature intended. Humans are the worst creatures on Earth. Stop this madness NOW!

  18. YOU EVIL SADISTIC BASTARDS!!! STOP THESE CRUEL FUR FARMS!!!!~

    WE DO NOT NEED FUR!!!!!

    • You know Patricia, we will never really be able to stop these arrogant psycho tossers some them who actually salivate whilst watching animals being tortured to death for amusement and financial gain.

      I am not a violent person but I guarantee the only thing one of these wankers would be salivating if I had the opportunity is teeth and blood when I smashed the shitbag in the mouth with my trusty baseball bat.

      This is the only thing these fuckers understand and I only hope that sooner than later animal rights vigilante groups will flaunt the law and
      take these assholes out albeit very painfully !

      All power to animal rights groups everywhere.

  19. I applaud the UK for banning the fur trade. It is long overdue, worldwide. The fur trade and business is grotesquely inhumane.

  20. How about giving them the same treatment? Man is every other living things enemy and should be ashamed of all the barbaric and evil things they do.
