Anti Fur protest in Grafton Street

category national | animal rights | news report author Saturday December 17, 2005 19:30author by Mick Report this post to the editors

Members of the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade staged a protest outside Brown Thomas on Friday evening against the sale of fur. A Garda arrived and threatened to arrest the activists whose only crime was to protest against the barbaric and cruel fur trade.

Across the world, wild animals are imprisoned in bare wire cages. Mink in cages with a floor space equivalent to 2 shoe boxes, foxes in cages just 1 metre square.

These animals are killed simply to provide fur to the fashion indsutry, yet no-one actually needs a fur coat - except the animal who was born with it!
