In Israel, the sale of natural fur was banned at the legislative level. Israel’s Environment Minister Gila Gamliel said Israel was the first country in the world to impose such a ban.
The head of the ministry called this a “hysterical step” and said that the law will come into force in December 2021.
“The fur industry is causing the death of hundreds of millions of animals around the world and is accompanied by indescribable cruelty and suffering. Together, we will make the Israeli fashion market more environmentally friendly and do good to animals,” the minister said.
PETA animal rights activists called it “a historic victory that will protect countless foxes, minks, rabbits and other animals from brutal killing.”
