New York – Below please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk following the news about Kopenhagen Fur announcing plans to shut down:
Virtual champagne corks are popping at PETA and all its affiliates over the news of the demise of Kopenhagen Fur, a business built on the suffering of caged animals denied a life and then killed for their fur. Since the public and almost every designer around the globe now shuns fur, it’s not surprising that two of the world’s biggest fur companies—in Canada and Denmark—have collapsed. Fur is well and truly dead.
