Praise Norway for Banning Fur Farming

Target: Erna Solberg, Prime Minister of Norway

Goal: Praise Norway for announcing its plans to shut down all fur farms by 2025.

Norway has announced that it will shut down all fur farms by 2025. This is fantastic news considering Norway is home to nearly 250 farms which kill 700,000 minks and 110,000 foxes every year.

Animals trapped in the fur industry face unimaginable horrors daily. They are often kept in cramped cages where they have limited access to food, clean water, and sunshine. Their lives are cruelly cut short using cheap slaughter methods, including strangulation, suffocation, electrocution, and poisoning. This new ban will spare countless animals from this misery and unnecessary death.

Norway now joins Croatia, the Czech Republic, Japan, and Slovenia in the growing list of countries banning fur farming. Sign this petition to show your support of Norway’s new ban.


Dear Prime Minister Solberg,

Norway recently announced that it will be shutting down all fur farms by 2025. This is amazing news for the countless animals trapped within in the fur industry.

As you are aware, Norway is home to nearly 250 farms which annually kill hundreds of thousands of minks and foxes. Thankfully, Norway will be phasing out and ending this cruel practice. This will spare an innumerable amount of animals from unnecessary pain and death.

Thank you for taking the initiative and becoming the first Nordic country to ban fur farming. It is inspiring to see Norway join Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Macedonia, and the Netherlands in the fight against fur.

  1. What a great nation, hopefully other nations will do the same. Ending all forms of animal abuse whether it be factory farming, fur/leather farms, animal experimentation, glue traps, animal circuses… ALL of it.

  2. Linda Hilty-Tuttle says:

    That’s great, but why 2025? Can’t they be persuaded to do this MUCH EARLIER, for the animals’ sakes?

    • Hi Linda~My thoughts exactly. Why wait until 2025? If Norway kills 700,000 minks and 110,000 foxes every year for another 7 years, that is almost 5 million minks and 770,000 foxes that will live an immensely cruel and torturous life and die a violent death for the fur trade! What are they waiting for??? Get it in gear, Norway. Stop this practice NOW!! Or, better yet, stop it yesterday! There is absolutely NO good reason to wait until 2025! None!

    • I agree!
      People loose their businesses all the time, so why protect farmers, especially when they inflict pain on others? Thanks for kind of helping though?

  3. Like others have commented – why will it take 7 whole years to bring this barbaric practice to an end?

    Nevertheless, well done to Norway. It has taken a zillion years for Norwegian ministers to listen to animal rights activists but they have at last taken notice and kudos to them.

  4. Maureen Garney says:

    Why are they waiting until 2015?????? Can you image how many animals will be killed in seven years?

  5. very nice, now they only should stop kill other animals like beautiful smart and very intelligent whales!
    but the first step to be a normal country was spectacular 🙂

  6. Erna – This is fantastic news! Fur Farm Animals live short, torturous lives and your decision will undoubtedly save millions of innocent lives in the Animal Kingdom!

  7. Shut down now not by 2025 you bastards.
