A national anti-fur protest will take place today in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The demonstration will see participants demand a nationwide ban on the brutal practice.
According to news agency BGNES, the protest will take place in front of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food building in Sofia.
As fur farming is banned throughout Europe, anti-fur protesters claim the on-going practice in Bulgaria is unacceptable.
A spokesperson said: "Is law-making allowed to pursue business interests instead of civilian ones? Is it permissible not to apply any sanctions for such general violations of ordinances?
"Is it permissible to become a 'third world' country in this respect, since such activity is forbidden throughout Europe? We will not stop fighting!"
There will be another protest on August 31.
