Norfolk, Va. – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in response to Coach’s announcement that it’s going fur-free:

After more than 11 years of PETA-led protests, shareholder resolutions, in-person meetings, and other efforts targeting the factory farming and electrocution of animals for their coats, Coach has agreed that it’ll end the sale of real fur, saying that it’s the “right thing to do.” Today’s shoppers don’t want to wear the fur of tormented animals, and PETA looks forward to Coach pulling angora and mohair from its designs next.

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear,” and more information is available at PETA.org.
