    Default Coveney Reverses ban on Fur Farming

    Simon Coveney has shamefully reversed the last governments decision to ban fur farming, Coveney confirms mink fur industry will continue - RTÉ News . A draconian industry will continue to create a holocaust of minks, this is in stark contrast to Coveney voting in 2004 to ban it. Dail rejects Fur Farming (Prohibition) Bill

    What were they feeding the creatures, it looked like excrement?

    This is Fine Gael at their most caring, most sympathetic. Many of our freezing elderly citizens will be grateful for this move which will make fur coats a possiblility when heating costs get too high. The great thing about a fur coat is that it can be left to your children so they too can keep warm at home in the dead of winter. Try doing that with a lump of coal or a bale of briquets. An inspired move Minister Coveney.

    Vegetarians will be responsible for the extinction of pigs.

    You can argue that killing for food is needed to some degree, but there is no need at all for fur.

    Seriously? You can't see the difference between the food chain and killing animals solely for some tacky coat?

    Killing for food isn't needed, au contraire, vegetable crops provide better protein yield per unit area of land

    Wrong decision I think. I don't give a hoot for minks but worry about more of the buggers escaping and damaging native wildlife.
