About

On June 26, 2021, Stella McCartney published an Instagram video of her, guesting his father Paul McCartney, to encourage people to sign an anti-fur petition created by the Humane Society International. Her sister, Mary, published a similar video a day after, on June 27.

From hsi.org:

The government ordered the last UK fur farm to close its doors back in 2000, but now the UK is importing fur cruelty from overseas. The unnecessary suffering of animals for fur fashion is deplorable, whether the animal involved is a cat, a dog or a seal, whose fur is already banned from UK trade by EU regulations, or a coyote, a fox or a raccoon dog, whose fur is currently still allowed.

Opinion polls show continually high levels of public disapproval of fur, regardless of species – more than 80% believe that it’s unacceptable to buy and sell animal fur in the UK. We want to see an end to the cruel, unnecessary, outdated fur trade, and for Britain to lead the way as the world’s first fur-free nation!

Please add your name to our letter calling on the government not only to retain a UK import ban on cat, dog and seal, but also establish a sales ban to cover the pelts of all animals killed for their fur.

About Humane Society International:

Photos taken during the filming of those two videos had been published to celebrate Paul McCartney’s 79th birthday on June 18, 2021.
