Cillian Murphy Joins Fight to End Fur Farming In Ireland
The film and TV star fired off a letter on behalf of PETA to Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine calling out fur farming for what it is, “a shameful, inhumane industry that is simply not compatible with animal welfare”.
Minks on Irish fur farms spend their lives in cramped wire cages. Denied the opportunity to run, swim and express any other natural behaviour, many of these wild animals go insane and begin to mutilate themselves. At the end of their short lives, they are killed and skinned for a gruesome fashion choice. As Cillian’s letter points out, a “complete ban is the only way to end the misery endured by thousands of animals every year on fur farms”.
