Trapped Animal’s Final Moments of LifeGRAPHIC: What if you saw this coyote before buying a Canada Goose jacket?

Winter-wear brand Canada Goose – which sells its coats and accessories in the UK – uses fur taken from coyotes trapped and killed in this way. These barbaric leghold traps crush their necks or slam shut on their legs, often cutting to the bone. Ensnared animals can suffer for days, facing blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. Mothers who are desperate to get back to their starving pups have been known to try to chew off their own limbs in an effort to escape.

And the retailer doesn’t limit its cruelty to coyotes. It also sells jackets stuffed with the down of geese and ducks who spend their lives inside crowded, filthy sheds before being violently killed for their feathers and flesh. Some are still conscious when their throats are slit.

Compassionate consumers can still keep snug and warm as the mercury dips by shunning Canada Goose and its cruelly produced fur – and choosing instead from the many sustainable and beautiful alternatives available today. For that extra bit of insulation, seek out garments made from faux fur and innovative synthetic materials such as PrimaLoft, Thinsulate, Gore-Tex, Polartec Wind Pro, and Thermolite.

    The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

    Mankind behaves less than animals to kill them just for their fur. How low has it fallen by doing so!!!

    • squill commented on January 6, 2017 at 8:32 pm

      Not very low there has been worse things atrocities infact depressing things, animals killing other species for gain is natural, although it is typically for meat, not fur but still applies.

    STOP killing animals for fur- human greed!!!

  • Mark Noble commented on December 17, 2016 at 1:03 am

    To kill animals for their fur is something that shames us all – and is a blot on mankind’s attitude to the animals we share this planet with.

  • Graciela Patrón commented on December 17, 2016 at 1:06 am

    You can not kill innocent people to take away their skin.
    It is unworthy and aberrant

  • Michelle Walker commented on December 17, 2016 at 8:12 am

    People who wear fur are ignorant! An animals fur is not fashion. It is ther skin. Humans have no right to it.

  • Monica Moore commented on December 18, 2016 at 1:24 am

    I can dress well without using any of the above. It’s time people realized there are alternatives that don’t cause pain and death.

  • yvonne Bloe commented on December 18, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    The video no longer exists. But the evil does. It was no longer able to be watched thank goodness so I never got to see it. I wouldn’t have anyway. I can only guess. Please have it stopped. Imagine yourself or your loved ones in the same situation.

  • Virginia Abreu de Paula commented on December 19, 2016 at 1:13 am

    I could not see the video! I mean, it seems it was removed. But I really don’t need to see cruelty. I already don’t wear anything that comes from animals.

  • Luz-Stella Merino Caldas commented on December 19, 2016 at 8:19 pm

    How can people enjoy something that has made so many poor, defenceless creatures to suffer so much!

    Please, in the name of God, stop this horror!

  • kwong tsz leung commented on December 22, 2016 at 6:04 pm

  • Karen commented on December 31, 2016 at 10:46 am
