The first countries to prohibit fur farming in Europe were the U.K. in 2000 and Austria in 2004, not least thanks to the work of FOUR PAWS.
But on a global level, most fur animals are either insufficiently protected or are not protected at all. The Council of Europe adopted a recommendation on fur farming in 1999. However, it is totally inadequate from the perspective of animal welfare because it continues to permit the confinement of the animals in tiny cages. Wire-mesh floors and a lack of areas for climbing, digging and bathing are tolerated. Many EU states have no additional regulations on fur farming. Fortunately, more and more countries are showing a good example by protecting fur animals through stricter national legislation or by completely banning fur farms.
Misleading 'Welfur' Animal Welfare Label
As a member of the Fur Free Alliance, FOUR PAWS warns against the ‘Welfur’ label. Welfur is a certification programme run by the fur industry itself and is aimed at European fur farms. The label endeavours to make animal cruelty acceptable, while millions of animals suffer and are cruelly killed in order to produce frivolous fur fashion items.
