Article by Laura Donnellan on Cat and Dog Fur Regulation published in the Liverpool Law Review
The Cat and Dog Fur Regulation, which bans the importation and exportation of real cat and dog fur, has been in force since 2008. The Regulation was a welcome development, however, a recent investigation carried out by the Humane Society International/UK and Sky News uncovered the sale of items of clothing containing real cat fur on the British high street. This discovery, coupled with a recent report by the European Commission on the application of the Cat and Dog Fur Regulation, has undermined the efficacy of the Regulation. It raises questions as to the enforcement of the Regulation, and indeed the enforcement of EU animal welfare protection and legislation in general.
