An interview with Jennifer Hamerman, Director of the European Campaign for Animal RightsWe met with Jennifer Hamerman in Brussels to learn more about the European Campaign for Animals and their 2016 campaign to ban fur farms in Europe.
It is time for us to end fur farming in Europe. There are 7200 fur farms in Europe and the EU accounts for 66 percent of global mink production and 70 percent of fox production. Animals on fur farms live in cramped and dirty wire cages. They are killed using the cheapest and most cruel methods, including suffocation, electrocution, gas, and poison. This practice is inhumane and has no place anywhere. Let us end it in our own backyard and send a signal to the rest of the world that fur farming is cruel.
