Tell Global Retailer Canada Goose to Stop Using Inhumane Fur and Down in Its Jackets!

Cruelty can be found in every stitch of Canada Goose jackets and other clothing items. Wild coyotes trapped for the company’s fur-trimmed jackets can suffer for days and face blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. Mothers desperate to get back to their starving pups have been known to attempt to chew off their own limbs to escape. Animals who don’t succumb to the elements, blood loss, infection, or predators are often strangled, stomped on, or bludgeoned to death when the trapper returns.


Ducks and geese suffer as well. Those used for the down stuffed into Canada Goose jackets are violently killed for both their feathers and meat, and some even have their throats slit while they’re still conscious and able to feel pain.

There’s nothing warm and cozy about the cruelty that Canada Goose stitches into every one of its jackets. Urge the company to stop selling fur and goose down now!
