The Polish parliament is considering a bill to ban fur farming, which would end the suffering of more than 8 million animals bred and killed each year on Polish fur farms. A recent PETA Germany exposé into five Polish fur farms revealed that foxes and raccoon dogs were crammed into barren, feces-encrusted wire cages. Animals went insane from the intensive confinement, frantically turning in circles, pacing back and forth, and scratching at cage walls. Standing on barren wire cage floors led to swollen and inflamed paws. These and other injuries and diseases, such as swollen gums, went untreated. Other investigations have revealed similar neglect and abuse on fur farms, including animals with open, festering wounds being killed by electrocution, neck breaking, or gassing.
To help stop this cruelty, fur farming must be banned, as has already been done in many countries, including Austria, Croatia, Slovenia, and the United Kingdom.
Please take a few moments to urge the Polish ambassador to support a ban on fur farming.
