Winning applause from the International Anti-Fur Coalition as the first entire nation to impose such a ban, Israel announced a ban on the sale of fur in the fashion trade.
As per Fashion Network, the ban was announced by Israel’s environment ministry banned on commerce in animal fur, imports and exports except for the needs of research, study or certain religious traditions. Israel became the first entire nation to be Fur Free, against a backdrop of bans in some international cities and in the US state of California.
The ministerial decree is to take effect in six months.
The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) called for other countries to follow suit on health grounds.
Cramming sick and stressed animals together in unsanitary conditions on fur farms creates the perfect breeding ground for deadly diseases; PETA said adding that the ovel coronavirus has been found on mink fur farms in a dozen countries.
