Embargo on the export of dogs' and cats' fur among the EU PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 21 June 2007
The Council of Europe passed embargo on the export and import on dogs' and cats' fur among member nations of the EU on June 19, 2007 (Strasbourg, France).
It aims to come into effect in 2009. The reason for this decision was that dogs' and cats' fur have been used in clothing mislabeled as other animals such as minks and foxes. Despite this, the import of dogs' and cats' fur will continue for only purpose of educational and taxidermic uses.
According to surveys, numbers of dogs and cats killed for thier fur every year is estimated to about 2 millions globally. Currently, China is the number one exporter of dogs' and cats' fur. Approximately 5,400 of dogs and cats are slaughtered for fur everyday in China.
