PETA to Ivanka Trump: Ditch the Fur

Written by PETA | February 17, 2016

PETA is calling on fashion designer Ivanka Trump to stop wearing and working with real fur following a daring new PETA Asia exposé deep inside the rabbit-fur industry in China, the world’s largest fur exporter. Trump, who sells hats with pompoms made of fur from rabbits killed in China received a letter from PETA revealing that rabbits live in urine-encrusted cages before they are hit, hung up and skinned – sometimes while still alive.

Every single fur farm that PETA Asia has visited in China has been exceptionally cruel: A previous investigation in China revealed that rabbits were shocked with electrical devices, causing them to scream in pain. Investigators have also witnessed foxes being electrocuted, dogs bludgeoned to death, and raccoon dogs skinned alive. Selling fur from China – where there are no penalties for abusing animals on fur farms – means supporting the worst kind of unabated cruelty to animals.
