EU Parliament votes to ban cat and dog fur trade

June 19, 2007 22:58

Trade in products containing cat or dog fur will be banned in the European Union, following public calls to outlaw a practice many people consider unethical and animal rights advocates call barbaric. European Parliament lawmakers on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved the ban, which has to be approved by national governments and would come into force from 2009. The European Commission says cat and dog fur can be found in some clothing, personal accessories and soft toys being sold on the European market, either falsely labeled as another kind of fur or hidden within the product.
