ANIMAL RIGHTS activists are trying to get a bill passed that would ban fur farming in the Republic of Ireland.
Members of PETA gathered in Cork city center dressed as grim reapers and dragging mink coats behind them in a bid to get support for the Bill.
The Solidarity party is expected to present a Bill on the issue to the Irish Parliament.
PETA chief Elisa Allen said: “Ireland’s fur farms imprison 200,000 minks a year in squalid cages.”
Fur farming is legal in many countries.
