The city of Berkeley, California, has passed an ordinance that bans the local sale of fur apparel products:
Berkeley Coalition for Animals founding member Jay Quigley said in a statement, “The millions of poor foxes, rabbits, minks and other animals who are bred for their fur typically spend their entire lives in cages barely bigger than their bodies. Then they’re slaughtered by gassing, neck-breaking or electrocution.”
Quigley said, “This brutal industry is radically inconsistent with Berkeley’s values.”
Fantastic news and hopefully more cities will follow!
