DSC_0268Harvey Nichols is on this Santa’s “naughty” list. Although the shop previously maintained a celebrated fur-free policy for a decade, it started selling fur again this year. With the chain’s profits plummeting, Steven Ugoalah, the star of this season’s The Apprentice, dressed as Santa and was joined by two PETA “elves” as he paid Harvey Nichols’ Knightsbridge shop a visit and offered some seasonal business advice. “Supporting the cruel fur trade is not only bad business – as Harvey Nichols is learning – but also utterly shameful”, Steven said. “My friends at PETA and I are calling on Harvey Nichols to do the right thing for animals by dropping fur for good – and we’re encouraging holiday shoppers to stay away from the store until it does.” Steven Ugoalah for PETA As PETA has exposed, for every cuff, collar, piece of trim or coat made from real fur, raccoon dogs, foxes, minks and many other animals – including dogs and cats – were electrocuted, bludgeoned, strangled or even skinned alive. PETA’s video montage, narrated by Paloma Faith, about “Origin Assured” fur – the type sold at Harvey Nichols – shows animals left to suffer from bloody wounds and forced to live in cages alongside dead animals.
