In a recent poll conducted by us here at That’sFarming, our followers were asked if they would back the bill to ban fur farming in Ireland. Find out the results below!

The Irish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA) recently backed the introduction of the Prohibition of Fur Farming bill to the Dáil by Deputy Ruth Coppinger, T.D., as reported by us here.

“There is overwhelming scientific evidence that fur farming is cruel. Mink are essentially wild animals and keeping them in small cages in which they are deprived of the ability to express their normal behaviours such as swimming and foraging is not acceptable.” Said Dr Andrew Kelly, CEO of the ISPCA.

The ISPCA, with the help of Respect for Animals, have called for the ban to be introduced with immediate effect. But how do our followers feel about fur farming?

Results -
In a poll conducted earlier this week, we asked That’sFarming followers if they felt fur farming should be banned.

The results are in and the vast majority (82%) were in agreement that the bill to ban fur farming should be introduced. When questioned further on if they knew that fur farms in Ireland were responsible for the increased American mink populations in the wild, 62% were unaware that this was the case.

The final question asked followers if they felt ‘fur farming’ was a bad representative of the agricultural industry. The vast majority were in agreement with a whopping 82% answering yes.
