Petition to Ban Fur Farms in the United States

PETITION: Ban Fur Farms in the United States

TARGET: Trump Administration

The fur industry continues to grow with demand specifically spiking in China. There are growing concerns about how the heightened popularity will increase the production of fur in the US. More than 50 million animals are violently killed for use in fashion every year. Right now farmed animals, animals taken from the wild then bred on the farm, are kept in rows of small barren wire cages – not unlike those used in puppy mills. They are typically trapped for their entire lives before they are killed by gassing, electrocution, or neck breaking.
One of the biggest problems in the U.S. is that furbearing animals that are farmed aren’t considered wild animals, and are not considered domestic either. According to research conducted by Born Free, state wildlife agencies want to pass responsibility over to the agriculture agencies, but agriculture agencies just want to pass it back. In the end, these animals are left without protection from the Animal Welfare Act and the Humane Slaughter Act and are exempt from most state anti-cruelty laws. There are also no rules about how these animals should be housed or cared for. We need your help getting the petition signed to grant anti-cruelty laws that will eventually lead to the end of fur farms!

Verbieten Sie Pelzfarmen Mehr als 50 Millionen Tiere werden jedes Jahr gewaltsam für den Gebrauch in Mode getötet. Im Moment werden Nutztiere, Tiere aus der Wildnis, die auf dem Bauernhof gezüchtet werden, in Reihen von kleinen, unfruchtbaren Drahtkäfigen gehalten - ähnlich denen, die in Welpenmühlen verwendet werden. Sie sind in der Regel für ihr ganzes Leben gefangen, bevor sie durch Vergasung, Stromschlag oder Halsbruch getötet werden. Eines der größten Probleme in den USA ist, dass furbearing Tiere, die gezüchtet werden, nicht als wilde Tiere betrachtet werden und auch nicht als inländisch gelten.

This is cruel and barbaric and any cruelty to animals should be stopped. Just because animals don't have a voice why does it give us the right to treat them this way .
