Badgers are extremely social animals who, in nature, live in elaborate underground homes, called “setts,” which they keep so tidy that the word “badger” is used in more than one house-cleaning company name. However, badgers exploited by the brush industry are often held in cramped cages on farms. PETA Asia’s investigation into the badger-brush industry documented these fastidious animals pacing back and forth and circling endlessly in a desperate attempt to escape their physical and psychological anguish.
At the end of their short, miserable lives, workers bludgeon and kill them for their hair.
Exploiting badgers is a form of speciesism—a human-supremacist worldview. There’s no acceptable reason to use brushes that contain animal hair, whether for makeup, grooming, or art supplies.
Urge the following companies to make the compassionate decision to stop using badger hair.
