Chicago – Wearing coyote masks and displaying graphic posters of dead coyotes that read, “Here’s the Rest of Your Canada Goose Coat,” members of PETA and Direct Action Everywhere Midwest will descend on the opening of Canada Goose’s Chicago store on Saturday. The protesters will alert passersby that Canada Goose’s coats are lined with dead birds’ feathers and trimmed with the fur of coyotes who were trapped and killed in the wild.

Where:    800 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago

When:    Saturday, October 28, 10 a.m.

“Every fur-and-feather Canada Goose coat represents the terrifying and painful death of a coyote who was trapped, strangled, shot, stomped on, or bludgeoned,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is urging consumers to reject cruelty to coyotes and shop vegan instead.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—notes that trapped coyote mothers desperate to get back to their starving pups have attempted to chew off their own limbs to escape and that many trapped animals succumb to the elements, blood loss, infection, or predators before trappers find them.

“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
