The Truth About Fur ...

We understand that you probably care about the treatment of animals. However, each year more than 40 million animals are killed in the name of "fashion" for fur coats and trim. These animals are either raised on crowded, filthy fur farms where cruelty is the norm, or trapped in the wild using inhumane and indiscriminate devices such as steel-jaw leghold traps and strangulation neck snares. Every one of these animals died a violent death through anal electrocution, gassing, neck breaking, drowning, clubbing and/or strangulation. Like you and I, animals feel pain. Just by wearing fur, you promote cruelty. Please. Choose compassion. Don't wear fur.
