Israel has become the first nation to ban fur

Israel has become the first country to ban the sale of fur. The ban prohibits the sale and purchase of fur throughout the country.

The country passed an amendment to regulations passed in 1976 as part of the Wildlife Protection Law. The ban was first proposed in October 2020 by Israel’s Minister of Environment Protection, Gila Gamliel.

“Israel has made history and put yet another nail in the cruel fur industry’s coffin,” said Mimi Bekhechi, vice president of international programmes at Peta.

“With the British government currently exploring a similar ban – which would make it the first country in Europe to close its borders to fur – we’re getting ever closer to a day when no animals are suffocated or skinned alive for collars and cuffs.”
