Company Ignores Cease-and-Desist Letter, Continues Lying to Callers About Fur Sales
Francisco -- bebe's continued claims that it is a fur-free company—even though
it sells items made with rabbit and chinchilla fur—have led PETA to file a
complaint with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). In the month since PETA sent
bebe a cease-and-desist letter—which the company has yet to respond
to—demanding that it either stop lying or stop selling items made with real
fur, bebe representatives have refused to answer callers' questions about fur,
saying that they "don't have any information regarding the exact
materials," that they "do not have a way to actually respond to
this," and even that they are "not obliged to answer your
question." Representatives have also lied to callers, saying that the
company sells "only fake fur."
customers—many of whom care about animals and would never patronize a store that
sells fur—is as unethical as skinning animals for their fur is cruel,"
says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "PETA is calling on the
Better Business Bureau to step in and tell bebe that if it doesn't want to be
known as a fur monger, then it needs to stop
selling fur—not lie to customers about it."
of the countries from which bebe obtains rabbit fur and where there are no
penalties for abusing animals on fur farms—workers pull rabbits out of cages by
their ears and stun the screaming animals with electrical devices. Workers cut
the rabbits throats and hack off their heads and paws with knives before
peeling their skin off their bodies. In other parts of the world, animals
killed for their fur spend their entire lives confined to tiny, filthy cages
amid their own waste until farmers break their necks, smash their skulls, or slit their throats.
