Sharon Osbourne Exposes Cruel Chinchilla-Fur Trade

From managing husband Ozzy’s music career to creating and starring in a wildly popular and first-of-its-kind reality TV show long before people began “keeping up” with any of the Kardashians, Sharon has done it all—and now she has a successful career as co-host of The Talk. She discusses with PETA how she once wore fur but swore it off for good and donated her furs to PETA after realizing that each purchase costs animals their lives. Now, she’s speaking up for the smallest victims of the violent fur trade: chinchillas.

As Sharon explains in her expose, chinchillas are often kept in tiny, filthy cages before workers break their necks or electrocute them. “Toe-to-ear” electrocution immobilizes chinchillas but leaves them fully conscious as they experience all the pain of a full-blown heart attack. In nature, chinchillas are social animals who enjoy burrowing, climbing, and playing, but on fur farms, they are denied everything that is natural and important to them.

Watch Sharon talk about her decision not to wear fur, and learn about 420 chinchillas who were rescued from a painful death.

The only way to stop this cruelty is to end the demand and refuse to purchase any fur or fur trim. Join Sharon today and take the pledge—defend animals everywhere by living a kinder lifestyle now and vowing to be forever fur-free!
