Fur Wearers, Beware!

Written by PETA | January 13, 2009

‘Tis the season to fight fur full-force, and our unstoppable campaigners have been doing just that. They took their eye-catching demos to cities across the Pacific Northwest to show folks the fur industry’s horrific practices.

Animals are left to languish in sickening steel-jaw traps for days. Often, they will force themselves to chew off the injured limb to free themselves in order to get back to their den to feed their young—only to bleed to death later. Those who are not “useful” are deemed “trash animals” and discarded to die.

Since the fur industry tries hard to keep its methods under wraps, you’d best believe we will boldly display it on street corners, in living color!

So, give it up for our fearless campaigners!

PS While we’re on the topic, here are detailed instructions on how to rescue an animal from a steel-jaw trap.

    I love this demonstration…i just wish that the people that still wear fur would wake up and realize what the animals go through.

  • Matt says:

    Wouldn’t passing out pamphlets be slightly more effective?
