Animal Fur is Banned in California

BBC News reports that California has become the first US state to ban the manufacture and sale of animal fur as of 2023. It has been celebrated by animal rights groups which have been calling for a ban for some time.

The ban, however, does not apply to leather, cowhides and the full skin of deer, sheep and goats.

Governor Gavin Newsom also signed a bill banning most animals from circus shows, except cats, dogs and horses. It does not apply to rodeos.

Those who would break the law could face a fine of $500 or in repeat cases, $1,000.

Last May, fashion house Prada announced that it would stop using fur, starting with its spring-summer 2020 line. In February, the UK’s Selfridges announced it would be banning the sale of exotic animal skins from February 2020.
