Closed petition Petition to ban the snaring of wildlife for use in the fur trade

While fur farming was banned in the UK in 2000, fur trapping is still legal for certain wild animals such as foxes, rabbits and mink.

We are campaigning to close this loophole to prevent more animals suffering in these barbaric traps, being killed inhumanely and skinned for their pelts.

We request that all snaring of wild animals for use in the fur trade be abolished and for this law to be upheld by the appropriate authorities and monitored closely.

More details

This petition has been created in reference to the recent incident which has come to light of a Welsh fur trapper blatantly and deliberately snaring foxes, beating them to death and skinning them in order to sell their pelts in the foreign fur trade.
