Interdire les élevages d'animaux à fourrure en Finlande : en cette rentré 2019 contacter les politiques
Lettre (traduction sur le lien du blog) :
Our group have had a meeting with Finnish ambassador in 2015 to ask a ban on fur farming in Finland :
Our exchanges about oversized fox farms, in 2017 :
Today, we ask you again to do all in you power to give an end to fur farming, as more and more countries has done to do : United Kingdom, Austria, Scotland, North Ireland, Croatia, Czech republic, Luxembourg, Slovania. And more recently : Serbia,Denmark (foxes), Netherlands (foxes),Sweden (fox fur farms),Germany, and Norway. Spain no longer allows the construction of new mink fur farms. Similar legislation led Japan to close its last fur farm in 2016. Because it is impossible to breed decently thousands animals in good conditions, foxes, raccoon dogs and minks fur farms must be banned in Finland also. In addition, the fur industry is classified by the World Bank as one of the five most polluting industries in the world for heavy metals.These farms, which are fur farms, holding thousands of animals, are an abyss of expense and energy:The only transformation of fur pollutes the environment, in addition to risks such as toxicity to aquatic life and air pollution.The risk of pollution of groundwater, soil, air, carbon footprint related to transporting food, corpses, slurry, and clean water used in all fur farms is an aberration. With the risk of great periods of drought to come, straw and water are commodities and resources) to preserve for vital needs. This is therefore a gulf in energy expenditure.These massacres of animals generate real looting and waste of resources, and contribute to the loss of biodiversity and global warming, vital for our survival.
And even the best conditions in these farms are unsatisfactory, making the ban on fur farms the only way to protect animals.These examples from other, more developed countries in Europe show that it is impossible to protect the welfare of animals in the conditions of exploitation of their fur.
This is why pig crates should also be banned, where mother pigs gave birth, as well as cows stalls in stables. These factories must now be a thing of the past.Finland is lagging behind other European countries in animal welfare. The previous Animal Welfare Act has been in effect for 30 years.
For animals in suffer, and for the planet, we must really we must evolve.
Looking forward to your reply, we sincerely thank you.
