New York – Her voice can be heard in Teen Titans, The Powerpuff Girls, My Little Pony, and more—and now, voice acting legend Tara Strong has teamed up with PETA to voice a trapped mother coyote in a new video short for #CanadaGooseKillsDay: “Draw My Life: Canada Goose Edition.”

In the video, the Canadian actor reveals the plight of coyotes who are trapped, killed, and skinned for the fur trim on Canada Goose’s coats: “I’ve tried so hard to escape, but there just isn’t any way out,” she says. “I tried pulling. Twisting. I tore off my own skin with my teeth and tried to chew through my bone. But I couldn’t escape. And now I’m waiting. Waiting for the trappers to come. To shoot me or beat me to death. So that I can be skinned and Canada Goose can sell my fur. I can hear their footsteps approaching. All I can think about is that I’ll never get to see my pups grow up.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—also released a video exposé revealing that workers at a Canada Goose down supplier rounded up terrified geese who piled on top of one another in an attempt to escape, causing suffocation and death.

A wide variety of top brands—including HoodLamb, Save the Duck, NOIZE, Vaute, and Wuxly Movement—sell warm and stylish coats that are 100 percent vegan.

Strong is part of a growing list of celebrities—including Maggie Q, Sarah Jeffery, and Justin Long—who’ve joined PETA in speaking out against Canada Goose.

“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
