Stop the Skinning of Live Cats and Dogs sign now

Dear Mr. Kyprianou,

As you are aware, there are over two million cats and dogs being raised under deplorable conditions in Asia, particularly China, and then skinned alive or strangled or stabbed to death for their furs and skins. There is no cultural aspect to this business just pure greed. These skins and furs are used on products that are being sold throughout the EU and as an EU citizen I find this outrageous!

I am concerned that while the US, Australia and five EU nations: Italy, Denmark, France, Greece and Belgium have banned this fur, the EU as a whole has rejected requests from virtually every country and its leadership to ban the import, export, sale and production of this fur. Without a complete ban this terrible business will continue in the EU. The Matrix Chambers, a prominent UK law firm has issued a ruling that an EU ban on cat and dog fur would be justified under the EC treaty and it would not cause a WTO trade issue.

My letter is to ask that as a new leader in the EU Commission you ban this fur immediately. Not only is the cruelty intolerable but I feel strongly that these products with fradulent labels harm me as a consumer. I am also worried about the toxicity levels$ of some of the childrens toys made with this fur. It is very rare that market items are cruel to animals, fraudulent to consumers and toxic all at the same time. Surely the EU can act to protect us from all of this.

Though this letter is a copy of one already sent I would like to assure you that it is an entirely new petition showing support in banning the trade of fur obtained through the torture of these animals.

Thank you for your consideration of my request.
