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.
