Czech Republic bans fur farms

The Czech Republic recently became the latest addition to a growing list of countries saying ‘NO’ to fur farms. Over 80% of the Czech population is in favour of this new law, and the ban will be completed no later than 2021. This historic amendment to the country’s Animal Welfare Act will save around 20,000 foxes and minks every year from being cruelly killed for their fur. This is another victory for defenceless animals, as it follows fur-farming bans that have been adopted in Croatia, Japan, Macedonia, the Netherlands and Slovenia. Lithuania, Poland and Germany are expected to soon follow suit. In addition, it has been years since fur farms have existed in Great Britain, Switzerland or Austria.
