Ban the sale of fur in Bristol

We the undersigned Call on the Bristol Council to ban the sale of fur.

As demanded by the government it has been fifteen years since the last UK fur farm was shut. It was finally accepted that the exploitation of animals in pursuit of fur is nothing other than abhorrent and cruel. This belief extends to all animals, from cats and dogs – whose fur legally cannot be sold in the UK due to EU trade standards – to coyotes, foxes, mink and raccoons whose fur is immorally still allowed to be used in fur fashion.
Despite our acceptance of the immorality of fur farming, the UK proceeds to endorse it. According to the Humane Society the UK has imported over £650m-worth since the ban. Evidence from Open Cages shows that the humane fur farm is a myth: we are importing cruelty, cannibalism, infanticide and cage madness no matter where the fur is sourced.
Bristol is known for its progressive and forward-thinking politics, and with support from Bristol MPs Kerry McCarthy & Darren Jones for #FurFreeBritain, Open Cages believes Bristol should not lose its progressive reputation by continuing to fuel the fur trade. You can be part of the change by signing the petition to encourage the Bristol Council to act.
