In the 2021 Queen’s Speech, the government outlined ambitious plans to bring forward new legislation to “ensure the United Kingdom has, and promotes, the highest standards of animal welfare”.
This is to be achieved with an Action Plan for Animal Welfare, which includes an indication that the government intends to ban fur and foie gras imports, the import of hunting trophies from endangered animals, and live-animal exports.
Animals Can’t Wait
The new legislation mentioned in the Action Plan for Animal Welfare will mark an important moment in history. However, animals will continue to suffer until the bans are implemented.
Geese are still being force-fed for foie gras that’s sold in the UK. Minks, foxes, and coyotes are still being killed for fur that is available in British stores. Wild animals are still being hunted for trophies that can be brought here. Hundreds of thousands of cows, pigs, and sheep are still forced to endure long, dangerous, and distressing journeys to slaughter.
The government must put its words into action. Animals cannot wait. Speak out and let them know these bans are needed now.
