Jacksonville, Fla. -- Holding signs that read, "Stein Mart: Fur Is Dead," and wearing Grim
Reaper costumes, several PETA members will gather outside Stein Mart's
Jacksonville headquarters on Tuesday as part of a protest against the
department store's continued sales of clothing made with rabbit fur. Other PETA
members will hand out leaflets explaining why buying and wearing any fur
supports one of the most ghoulish industries on the planet.
When: Tuesday, October 30, 11 a.m.
Where: Stein Mart headquarters, 1200 Riverplace Blvd. (near the intersection with Main Street S.), Jacksonville
it comes to terror and death, the Grim Reaper could take lessons from Stein
Mart," says PETA Associate Director Lindsay Rajt. "To satisfy the
whims of fashion, Stein Mart is sentencing countless rabbits—who are among
the gentlest animals on Earth—to a horrific life and a violent death."
in Eva Mendes' video exposé of the fur industry, rabbits on fur farms are pulled
out of cages by their ears and stunned with electrical devices. The animals
watch as other rabbits have their throats cut and their heads and paws cut off
with knives before the skin is peeled off their bodies. PETA sent Mendes' video
to Stein Mart executives, and many members of the public have used PETA's website to urge the company to stop selling fur, but so far,
these appeals have been ignored.
Dozens of top fashion retailers—including Caché, Mango, Polo
Ralph Lauren, Urban Outfitters, J.Crew, and Gap—are
100 percent fur-free.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
