Thanks to the more than 53,000 PETA, peta2, and PETA Latino members and supporters who urged GUESS to stop selling angora, the company announced today that it will no longer sell angora, which comes from rabbits who have their fur ripped out of their sensitive skin as they scream in pain or who are tethered or suspended in the air while they are aggressively sheared. We’re pleased that GUESS made the compassionate decision to stop selling a product that causes rabbits a tremendous amount of pain, distress, and suffering. More than 220 retailers around the world, including Gap Inc., French Connection, H&M, and now GUESS, are angora-free.
