Petition Retain bans on cat, dog, seal fur imports, and extend to ban all fur imports
The Government must commit to keep vital bans on imports of cat, dog and seal furs, and extend legislation to ban the import and sale of fur from all species. The UK banned fur farming because it is so cruel, we must stop importing that same cruelty.
In 2003 fur farming was banned in the UK. Through EU laws, trade in cat, dog and seal fur has also been banned. Powers in the Retained EU Law Bill mean Government could repeal existing fur trade bans, when it should be extending them to all animals. It is estimated that the UK imports fur from millions of animals annually, but a 2022 poll shows 77% of Brits believe Government should ban fur imports.
