Ban fur trade

Print More

In February, activists held a rally on the north steps of the state capitol building seeking a ban on fur sales and manufacturing in Connecticut. State representatives David Michel of Stamford, Anne Hughes of Easton, Redding and Weston, Dorinda Borer of West Haven, and Mike Winkler of Vernon attended the event in a show of support. 

Readers should contact their representatives if they were not one of these compassionate four and urge them to support a ban. If your representative already supports the idea, readers should consider thanking them. It’s time to end this cruel, outdated industry.
