Israel Fur Trade Ban Wins Support : Humane Society International
Would you support anti-fur legislation in your own country?Update, September 1, 2010
Humane Society International is applauding moves by politicians in Israel who have put forward proposals to ban the fur trade throughout the country. The bill, introduced by Knesset Member Ronit Tirosh, seeks to outlaw the production, processing, import, export and sale of fur from all animal species not already part of the meat industry. A ban on all fur throughout the country would be a world first—a major stand against the animal cruelty inherent in the worldwide fur trade—and it would set an example that other countries would look to and follow. It has attracted widespread support in Israel and from the public, politicians and celebrities from around the world.
