The recently appointed agriculture minister said during a radio interview that fur farming was here to stay, despite earlier plans for an outright ban, which was to form part of new legislation on protection of animals against cruelty.
“Let me be precise here. I am not withdrawing the bill from parliament, because it contains a number of positive features,” the minister said, adding that the provisions on supervising animal shelters and ensuring humane conditions therein would remain unchanged.
“I will not back down on these issues and will continue to support animal rights activists in this regard,” Mr Ardanowski promised.
The crux of the matter, however, is that the minister was backtracking on an earlier promise made by the party leader, Jarosław Kaczyński, that fur farming would be banned outright. Mr Kaczyński, an ardent animal-rights champion, has repeatedly stressed his personal opposition to animal cruelty involved in fur farming. The ban was reportedly to take effect in 2022, allowing farmers a generous time to find a new line of business.
