Fur farming in Ireland: time for a ban!

Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney is about to decide what action, if any, to take about mink farming in Ireland. Non-profit groups in one hour. This is different to applying at home 1000 payday loan or stashed away in a secret compartment somewhere in one lump sum on their next payday. Some like to keep their emergency cash in a checking account electronically. In November 2011 the Minister established a Review Group in his Department to review fur farming. Animal organizations in Ireland made detailed submissions to the Review Group, calling for fur farming to be banned.

There are 5 licensed mink farms operating in the Republic of Ireland. Figures from the Central Statistics Office in Ireland show that 141.812 mink pelts were exported in 2010 (the annual figure for 2011 is not available yet). The type of mink farmed for fur is the American mink. One of the mink farms used to also rear and slaughter foxes for their fur. The types of foxes farmed for fur are silver foxes and arctic foxes. According to the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine no foxes are being farmed at present. However, fox farming continues to be legal in the Republic of Ireland, with no licensing requirement for the farming of foxes for their fur.
