New York -- Holding lifelike "skinned foxes" and signs emblazoned with a photo of a skinned—but still conscious—raccoon dog next to the words "Your Fur Had a Face" and "Coach: Dump Fur," PETA members will confront Coach, Inc., shareholders outside the company's annual meeting on Wednesday. Inside the meeting, a representative of PETA—which owns stock in Coach—will present a statement in support of PETA's shareholder resolution calling on Coach to follow the lead of many other fashion retailers by ending all fur sales. Coach sells purses, wallets, luggage, and other fashion accessories and products in the U.S. and 20 other countries.
When: Wednesday, November 3, 8:30 a.m. (meeting begins at 9 a.m.)
Where: Coach headquarters, 516 W. 34th St. (between 10th and 11th avenues), New York
"Coach must stop supporting the pain and suffering that comes with every item made with fur," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "With all the luxurious and practical options available, Coach has no excuse for supporting an industry that abuses animals and that has even been caught skinning them alive."
An undercover investigation of fur farms in China—now the world's leading fur exporter—revealed that workers smashed the heads of foxes and raccoon dogs against the ground. The animals were still panting and blinking their eyes as they were skinned alive. Millions of dogs and cats are also killed for their fur in China.

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.
