Lithuania bans fur farming
After successfully passing a majority vote in the Seimas last week, President Gitanas Nausėda signed a bill banning fur farming into law on 27 September.
Lithuania is the 20th Member State to adopt legislative restrictions on fur farming, providing a clear signal that European citizens overwhelmingly support the end of the fur industry.
In the past year alone, citizens have written nearly 27,000 letters to decision makers to demand an end to the brutal confinement and killing of animals for fur. Lithuania has made history and put yet another nail in the coffin of the cruel fur industry.Gabriele Vaitkevičiūtė, Tušti Narvai
