Ang Komite ng Badyet ng Senado ng Italya ay bumoto ngayon upang aprubahan ang isang binagong bersyon ng isang pagsususog sa batas sa badyet na magsasara sa 10 natitirang mink fur farm ng bansa sa loob ng anim na buwan at permanenteng pagbabawal sa pagsasaka ng balahibo sa buong Italya. 

Ang boto ay kasunod ng mga talakayan sa organisasyon ng proteksyon ng hayop na Humane Society International/Europe na nagpakita ng mga praktikal, estratehikong solusyon upang isara at gawing alternatibo, makatao at napapanatiling negosyo ang mga fur farm sa kamakailang ulat nito Pag-aanak ng mink sa Italya: Pagma-map at mga pananaw sa hinaharap. Although the decision requires final approval by the Parliament, this is expected to go through by the year’s end, making Italy the 16th country in Europe to ban fur farming. Many Italian designers have already gone fur-free including Valentino, Armani, GUCCI, Prada and Versace.

Ang panukalang conversion ng fur farm ng HSI/Europe, na naghahangad na wakasan ang pagsasaka ng balahibo dahil sa kalupitan sa hayop at mga panganib sa kalusugan ng publiko mula sa zoonotic disease, ay inendorso ng Italian Member of Parliament na si Hon. Michela Vittoria Brambilla, na naglunsad ng pampulitikang aksyon upang ipatupad ang diskarte sa conversion gamit ang mga kasalukuyang pampublikong pondo, at si Sen. Loredana De Petris na pormal na nagsumite ng pag-amyenda.

Martina Pluda, director of Humane Society International in Italy, said: “This is an historic victory for animal protection in Italy, and HSI/Europe is immensely proud that our fur farm conversion strategy has played a central role in dismantling this cruel and dangerous industry in our country. There are very clear economic, environmental, public health and of course animal welfare reasons to close and ban fur farms. Today’s vote recognizes that allowing the mass breeding of wild animals for frivolous fur fashion represents a risk to both animals and people that can’t be justified by the limited economic benefits it offers to a small minority of people involved in this cruel industry. With so many designers, retailers and consumers going fur-free, conversion of fur farms offers people a sustainable future that the fur trade simply cannot provide.”

Kasama sa naaprubahang pagbabago ang:

• Isang agarang pagbabawal sa pagpaparami ng mga hayop na may balahibo kabilang ang mink, fox, raccoon dog at chinchillas, at ang pagsasara ng lahat ng aktibong fur farm sa Italy sa ika-30 ng Hunyo 2022;

• Kompensasyon para sa mga magsasaka, na sakop ng isang pondo mula sa Ministri ng Agrikultura para sa kabuuang 3 milyong euro sa 2022,

Hon. Michela Vittoria Brambilla, president of the Parliamentary Intergroup for Animal Rights and of the Italian League for the Defense of Animals and the Environment commented on the vote: “In thirty years of animal rights battle this is the best victory. Finally, a parliamentary vote sanctions the end of unspeakable suffering inflicted on animals only in the name of profit and vanity. Italy is the twentieth European country to introduce a ban or severe restriction on fur farming: better late than never. Now we await the final approval of the budget law, but the political will has been clearly expressed. A dream comes true that animal protection associations have cultivated for decades in our country. I want to thank all the colleagues of the Intergroup, in particular Vice-President De Petris, who presented the amendment and reported it to the committee, the parliamentarians who shared this choice and the Italian office of Humane Society International which has promoted the economic study whose results formed the ‘basis’ for formulating the proposal. It is a great achievement, which finally all those who love and respect animals rejoice!”

Noong Disyembre 2021, nakumpirma na ang paglaganap ng COVID-19 sa 465 mink farm sa 12 bansa, kabilang ang Italy (sampu sa Europe kasama ang United States at Canada). Noong Pebrero 2021, ang European Food Safety Agency had reported that all mink farms should be considered at risk for COVID-19 outbreaks. In January 2021, a Risk Assessment jointly published by the World Health Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and World Organisation for Animal Health recognised Europe as a high risk region in relation to the introduction and spread of SARS-CoV-2 within fur farms, in addition to spill-over from fur farms to humans, and the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from fur farms to susceptible wildlife populations. More specifically, it rated the risk factors and likelihood of introduction and spread of SARS-CoV-2 within fur farms in Italy as “likely”.
