Serbia implemented the law that bans production of fur by killing animals. Klix reported that on Friday, with the message saying that the law was actually approved in 2009, but the implementation was delayed until now for the businessmen to get their businesses ready for changes.
There are ethical and environmental reasons for the ban, the portal points out.
The law that allows breeding animals except cats and dogs will act until 2028.
On January 4, Austria, Great Britain, Netherlands, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, Macedonia and Slovenia fully banned all kinds of activity of fur production enterprises.
A number of countries - Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina - also imposed transition periods for the full stop of such production. In some countries (Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain), governments create extremely tough conditions for fur producers, so breeding for fur actually stopped there.
