Österreich:
Demnächst Importverbot für Katzen- und Hundefell in Österreich

Am 16.2.2006 hat der österreichische Ministerrat einen Antrag für ein Importverbot von Katzen- und Hundefellen beschlossen. Dieser liegt jetzt zur Umsetzung im Ministerium bei Frau Bundesministerin Rauch-Kallat auf. Der Beschluss ist ein bedeutender Schritt.

Für ein Importverbot sind jetzt alle Hindernisse beseitigt. Damit Frau Bundesministerin Rauch-Kallat das entsprechende Gesetz erlässt, hält VIER PFOTEN den Druck weiter aufrecht.
 Austria:
Ban on the import of cat and dog fur in Austria expected

On the 16th of February 2006 the Austrian Council of Ministers issued a proposal on a ban of import of cat and dog fur and is now expecting the implementation by Minister Mrs. Rauch-Kallat. This decision is an important step within the field of animal protection.

Now time has come for the implementation of an import ban in Austria. FOUR PAWS will maintain the pressure to make sure that the responsible minister takes action.

Tschechien:
Die Organisation Human Society International (HSI) gibt bekannt, dass Katzen- und Hundefelle auch in der EU produziert werden.

Anfang 2006 erreichte uns die Nachricht, dass auch Katzen- und Hundefelle in der EU produziert werden sollen. HSI Nachforschungen deuten darauf hin, dass Felle (von Katzen und Hunden) möglicherweise auch aus Tschechien kommen könnten.

Niederlande:
VIER PFOTEN Niederlande startet Unterschriftenaktion

VIER PFOTEN Niederlande startete am 23. Februar 2006 mit einer landesweiten Unterschriftenaktion für einen Importstopp von Katzen- und Hundefellen in die Niederlande. Viele Unterschriftenlisten wurden bereits ausgeschickt und das Feedback der Bevölkerung ist sehr gut.
 Czech Republic:
The organisation Human Society International (HI states that cat and dog fur is also produced in the EU.

At the beginning of 2006 we received the news that cat and dog fur shall be also produced in Europe. A HSI investigation indicates that fur (from cats and dogs) may also be manufactured in the Czech Republic.
