Saw it on the news.

What were they feeding the creatures, it looked like excrement?

I'm vegetarian for ethical reasons , and I see no difference between killing an animal for food, leather or for fur

This is Fine Gael at their most caring, most sympathetic. Many of our freezing elderly citizens will be grateful for this move which will make fur coats a possiblility when heating costs get too high. The great thing about a fur coat is that it can be left to your children so they too can keep warm at home in the dead of winter. Try doing that with a lump of coal or a bale of briquets. An inspired move Minister Coveney.

Vegetarians will be responsible for the extinction of pigs.

Seriously? You can't see the difference between the food chain and killing animals solely for some tacky coat?

Wrong decision I think. I don't give a hoot for minks but worry about more of the buggers escaping and damaging native wildlife.

Killing for food isn't needed, au contraire, vegetable crops provide better protein yield per unit area of land

You have to see the difference, I'm a vegetarian too and I'm am againts the mass production of animals for food and the likes of KFCruelty but we need to ban the like of blood sports and fur farming first.

I'm virtually an Omnivore to be honest, and unsurprisingly perhaps, I agree with you on this.

Another piece of tree-hugging nonsense undone. Very soon, we'll have no trace of their shameful period in government.

The full ban on importing into the EU cosmetics tested on animals anywhere in the world is due to come into place in March. The industry has started putting massive pressure on again, however.
Just a link for more info

I eat meat all the time. But I expect the animals to be treated humanely while they're alive.

That plainly doesn't happen on fur farms.
