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. All involved in these horrors need to be severely punished and removed from society forever…SOLTARY would be great. They also need to pay very high fines…IN MY OPINON

  2. Completely banning fur trade is the right thing to do, considering only shallow humans feel the need to wear fur coats, fur stoles, etc. to show off. Unfortunately, the only thing they are showing off is their POS inhumane feelings toward innocent animals.

  3. Well said, Carolyn Douglas but Solitary would be too good for them and why should the taxpayer keep them? They should be got rid of by anal electrocution and then skinned. If they happen to be still alive, so be it.

  4. Really who commenting here eats meat and wears leather? Feeds pet food to their pets? There’s no difference in that and wearing a fur. Bunch of hypocrites.

    • You are a moron. I am a vegan and cats MUST have meat. There is a huge difference in fur and meat.

    • John G – You are a barking moron and the WORST kind of vegan – the “holier than thou” kind who does more harm to animal issues because you alienate everybody with your obnoxiousness.
      I appreciate everyone who protests any form of cruelty.
      Starting with one issue might prompt someone to explore plant-based food and other products the more they learn about all the various ways that animals suffer.
      You, on the other hand, give both animal rights AND veganism a bad name.

    • Listen here you lowlife I don,t eat meat so shut your vile an evil mouth. You are the hypocrite. You arsehole.

    • Well I certainly don’t eat meat and I don’t wear leather and I don’t have pets now and when I did I fed them biscuits and food we ate scraps so not everyone is a hypocrite and I’d never wear fur I believe animals are sentient beings they deserve love care and respect like we do and all animals have family’s brothers sisters mothers fathers, all animals hearts should beat for as long as you would want yours to beat in my lifetime I had my first dog at 11 yrs old I’ve had over 12 cats 10 dogs and most were strays 2 I stole because they were being abused by the owner plus I’ve had 18 racehorses because both my sons are jockeys all my animals are gone now but I’ve had some of them cremated in real coffins buried in a cat and dog cemetery and rest I had cremated have thier ashes in urns in my cabinet I would give my life to save an animals your right about some people they do eat meat wear leatherette but that’s not me

    It all must be made illegal

  6. Julia Edinger says:

    This is “ EVIL CRIME” against innocent animals!! MUST STOP THESE CRIMINALS,,,IMMEDIATELY!!!

  7. I’m with Wraith, people who wear fur are only self-serving, ignorant, ugly humans.

  8. ian thwaite says:

    Such a measure can only be introduced because 17.4 million Britons voted to leave the European Union.

    This was done in the teeth of opposition and abuse from the parties of the liberal-left, including Labour, the Liberal Democrats and Greens.

    It should also be pointed out that 16.1 million people voted for the import of animal fur from EU countries to continue indefintely.

    Oh my God! Poor sweet little guy in the picture..my heart breaks…

    Tamara Finkelstein…

    Death by gas, electrocution, lethal injection, and possibly even being skinned alive – IN WHAT WORLD IS THIS ACCEPTABLE!!!!!?????

    What kind of a person steals the fur off an animal’s back. PLEASE PUT IN PLACE A PERMANENT BAN ON ALL FUR SALES AND IMPORTS…AND PROTECT ALL ANIMALS.

    Anyone involved in these practices must pay the same price that they INFLICT on all these sweet innocent little angels.

    There is no defence for fur farms we have the ability to make fake fur and lets leave animals to enjoy their own. We don’t take nails from humans we make them. Cruelty is human shame. Animals usually kill quickly they do not think everything is here for them. Not everyone can be vegan but everyone can be fur free

  11. Why are some humans so psychotic toward animals? Why were they born?
    If there is any god out there you have failed!

  12. We will NOT wear it, we will NOT buy it! Fur belongs on the animals NOT HUMANS!! CLOSE DOWN THE FUR FARMS AND ARREST THE MURDERS!!!

  13. Tamara Finkelstein, Secretary of the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
    Endorse ban on fur imports and sales across the United Kingdom.

  14. STOP KILLING AMD SLAUGHTERING ANIMAL FOR THEIR FUR IMMEDIATELY!!!!

  15. Raynesha McGhee-Reed says:

    This extremely Breaks my heart & I really want this Prick 2 Rot in Fuckin hell 4 doin 2 the poor animals!!!!

  16. ALL humans involved in this horror are DEHUMANIZED, DESENSITIZED, SADISTIC and PSYCHOPATHIC MONSTERS that should be SENTENCED to DEATH and EXECUTED on an immediate basis. These people are MONSTERS and so are the AUTHORITIES that allow this HORROR to take place in 2021!!!!!

  17. Shirley Lemieux says:

    The UK now has the opportunity to send a strong message to all Nations about putting and end to this absolutely cruel and evil animal fur sales. It is not only barbaric but this should have been abolished in all Countries decades ago. Under no circumstance should any animal on this planet be caged and tortured for their furs. It is sick, cruel, and demonic, to commit such heinous acts against an animal for the sake of profit.

  18. Melinda Maddox says:

    We don’t need fur coats any more!!

  19. THIS IS DISGUSTING, DISGRACEFUL AND UNACCEPTABLE. THESE POOR ANIMALS. . . THIS CRUELTY MUST STOP. THIS MUST END EVERYWHERE. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR WAY TOO LONG NOW. WE DON’T NEED THEIR SKINS AND FURS – THEY NEED THEM! THE COUNTRIES AND CLOTHING COMPANIES THAT ARE STILL BUYING ANIMAL FUR PRODUCTS MUST COMMIT TO STOPPING IT AND GO FUR FREE. IT IS VERY DISTURBING AND INFURIATING TO KNOW THAT ANIMALS ARE STILL LIVING IN CAGES AND CONFINEMENT JUST WAITING TO DIE FOR THEIR FUR. IT IS UNCONSCIONABLE AND HEART-BREAKING AND JUST INEXCUSABLE TODAY.

  20. THIS IS HORRIBLE! The human race STINKS!!!
