THE ETHICAL CASE FOR EUROPEAN LEGISLATION AGAINST FUR FARMING (.pdf file - 100.12 KB)

By The Revd Professor Andrew Linzey

In recent years, several member states in the European Union enacted legislation to regulate or prohibit fur farming. This article calls for further action to ban the practice throughout the European Union. The Author notes animalsí inabilities to protect their own interests and the role of law to protect these vulnerable interests. The Author concludes by responding to the objections of fur farming proponents, ultimately finding no legitimate justification for the documented suffering of animals raised on fur farms.
