Another Nail in the Fur Industry’s Coffin

Break out the party hats: Another retailer has gone fur-free! After PETA sent Caché women’s specialty retailer a video showing animals being poisoned, gassed, skinned alive, and killed in other cruel ways, the company’s chief executive officer informed us that Caché would stop selling real fur. Woot, woot!

According to one fur trade journal, U.S. mink farms sold 28,000 fewer skins in 2009 than in 2008, and the value of the skins that were sold dropped by 38 percent. Fur imports have also dropped considerably.

“Fur is back,” my behind!

Let’s keep hammering away at the fur industry—animals on fur farms don’t get a summer vacation. To find out more, read the longer version of this blog on Care2

    When we can live on this planet without harming it or the other creatures that live here then we can say that we have evolved as human beings into what we were meant to be. There has to be a better way than living by harming other people or animals. Life has to get more gentle for us as a race to survive. Only by coexistance on the planet can we expect to see a future for mankind. Good work PETA.
