Fur Ban Resolution

Whereas, California has a ban on fur trapping, but California still allows fur to be sold here that is trapped in other states and countries,

Whereas, several cities in California including San Francisco, Los Angeles, and West Hollywood have banned the sale of animal fur clothing such as fur coats and fur trim,

Whereas, animals raised on “fur farms” are kept in tiny, filthy cages for their entire lives until being killed by gassing or electrocution or are skinned alive on Chinese fur farms as exposed in multiple animal cruelty investigations, those trapped in the wild for their fur often suffer excruciating pain for days prior to being killed, and non-targeted animals are also killed.

Be it resolved; that the San Diego County Democratic Party hereby encourages the County Board of Supervisors, all City Councils, and all municipalities within the County of San Diego to ban the sale of animal fur clothing.
