Anjelica Huston Asks Ireland To Ban Fur Farming

“Smash” star and veteran animal rights advocate Anjelica Huston has written Simon Coveney, Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine, urging him to ban fur farming in the country.

In a letter delivered on behalf of PETA and the Animal Rights Action Network, the Oscar-winning actress acknowledges her childhood spent in Ireland and past history of wearing fur, writing “I had a change of heart when I learned how minks and foxes on fur farms are crammed into tiny, dirty cages and driven so crazy by the confinement that many self-mutilate and even cannibalize (sic) their cagemates.”

Huston ends the letter by pleading with Coveney to “follow through on the commitment to add Ireland to the growing list of countries – including Northern Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, and Great Britain – that have banned the cruel practice of fur farming.”

The ban is expected to be introduced by Irish politicians when implementing a new Animal Health and Welfare Bill later this year.
