FANTASTIC!! FANTASTIC!!
If their market dwindles - then the supply should dwindle. What is China now going to do with their dogs?

Another thing I read was that there was a protest in China recently about using cats for meat. It sounds like a much higher percentage of younger chinese people are starting to oppose cat and dog fur, and eating cat and dog meat. Perhaps the younger will eventually change policy regarding these barbaric and nightmarish acts.

that is something, but what about the seals??? if europe bans seal fur trading, then canada has to stop killing these sweet little babies, because china will not buy the furs anymore, to make fashion of it!!! stop the trade of all fur, worldwide!!!

Truly a blessing...I hope this is picking up momentum and will ban all animal fur in Europe and across the world.

Great start for the year. I heard, that Canada is outlawing the Hackjapick to kill seals. But they still are going to kill them! But this is all connected to this ban, they will give it up eventually, because there won't be any markets to sell the fur. hahaha I think this is great news.

By what they say on the newpaper, we will have to work now on the Russians. Only then can we really make a dent into the Chinese fur industry1

GREAT NEWS!!!! Please send this on to all your friends. Hopefully, people will realize that killing animals to satisfy the greed and vanity of vain, selfish, and callous people. There is no need for wearing fur anymore. The warm and comfortable fabrics that are being created and turned into fashion items serve just as well.

This is a topic that has haunted me for years, ever since I read and watched online the torture and conditions animals are put through at these fur farms. Whilst I am so so happy at this news of the ban, I feel sad for all the animals that have lost their lives for their fur. Now we must continue to sign those petitions and write letters to the 'big bods' to get the rest of the world to also stop!
