Kashmiri garment traders surrender fur stocks

30
May '07
Finally, the 10-year long campaign to save wildlife of Kashmir is showing signs of success.

Around 224 traders till now have surrendered truckloads of hides and fur garments worth crores of rupees at the store rooms of Jammu & Kashmir's wildlife department, bringing an end to the three-century-old fur trade in the Valley.

Traditionally, Kashmir fur traders deal in skins of rare and endangered wild animals like snow leopards, brown bears, wolves, foxes, otters and pine martens, whose fur collection is seen as a status symbol among the rich class.

The State Government has declared trading of garments made of fur illegal ten years ago.

Jammu and Kashmir Government officials started taking inventory of animal skins and fur garments deposited by the traders.

The Government also hopes that money compensation could help the traders start new legal ventures.
