ARAN, Respect for Animals and the Animal, Anima and Fur Free Alliance (FFA) have released the findings of a new 2011 undercover investigation into Ireland's shameful fur factory farms, showing that yet again, animal suffering, is still very much business as usual. The recently obtained footage from an Irish mink farm, reveals images of animal suffering, including painful injuries on mink's tails; cramped, aged and filthy cages riddled with the animal faeces, and more shockingly the images of stressed, traumatised and balding animals; which spotlights the stereotypical behavior associated with intensive farming. Ireland's government are seeking submissions into Irish fur farms which close on December 31. Getting straight to work, a giant mobile billboard shadowed the Department of Agriculture in Dublin with a message 'FUR FARMING: TIME FOR A BAN,' before taking to the streets to garner public. support. read full story / add a comment

In the photo shoot a cross-roads has been reached, where a road sign points one way for “Ban Irish Fur Farms”, “Save Animals” and “Public Opinion” and in the very opposite direction, the road sign points to “Fur Farms”, “Animal Cruelty” and “200,000 Animals Killed Yearly”. Minister McEntee is seen pointing and directing both political parties towards the latter and away from the a ban of fur farms which would save the lives of approximately 200,000 Minks, Red Foxes and Arctic Foxes each year.

The AFAR group has been contacted by various people expressing their disgust at the prospect of an animal abusing event in Galway. Are Donkey derbys not a relic of bygone days?
This is the front page of the CURRENT Galway Independent. As part of a forthcoming "comedy" festival, radio presenter (Hector OhEochagáin) is publicising a Donkey Derby.
AFAR is totally opposed to cruel spectacles especially in light of the increasing number of horse and equine cases that have come to light.animal violations are increasing at an alarming rate as any one will confirm who is involved in animal protection.
This farce of bygone days shows lact of iniative and forethought and blatent disregard for sentient gentle animals.

AFAR would like to  strongly condemn the killing of four horses at Tramore Racetrack on Sunday . APPARENTLY …a combination of fast ground and tight bends contributed to an incident-filled four-day festival at Tramore last week but there was an unfortunate heavy toll on Sunday.

AFAR does not accept the weak excuses for these animals losing their lives and suffering needlessy in the name of profit and gambling.
