A new survey shows that a majority of Norwegians support the conservative government’s recent decision to phase out the fur industry. The survey was taken after the newly expanded government agreed on the phase-out.

The survey was conducted by research firm Sentio for newspaper Nationen, which traditionally is supported by farmers and advocates of rural districts who in turn have supported farmers who raise animals for their furs.

The survey found that 52 percent of those questioned believe the government made the right decision in eventually banning fur farming. Just 38 percent believed the decision was not correct, reported news bureau NTB.
