Heidi HAUTALA Animal Welfare Intergroup Member, Heidi Hautala MEP (Greens/EFA, FI), invites  to the launch of a new Eurogroup for Animals & Fur Free Alliance report  about fur farming in the EU, which will be presented on  Thursday 15th of October, 13.00-14.00 hrs .

Various opinion polls show that EU citizens are critical towards fur farming and a number of EU Member States have banned or phased out the practice due to animal welfare concerns.

The European fur industry markets itself as a responsible business concerned about ethics. We believe it important to take a closer look at the animal welfare in fur farms.

This new report explains the animal welfare problems with references to scientific studies, legislation and photographs.

Location: Members’ Salon, European Parliament

A light lunch will be served from 12.30
