NEARLY NAKED COVENTRY WOMAN STAGES DIE-IN IN FRONT OF CANADA GOOSE STORE

Cath Kendall, Winner of PETA’s 2018 ‘Hottest Vegan’ Competition, Took Part in Dramatic Protest Pressuring Company to Ditch Cruelly Obtained Fur

Coventry – Today, in advance of World Wildlife Day (3 March), Cath Kendall, an activist from Coventry, joined PETA supporters who lay nearly naked and “bloody” on a pile of “Canada Goose coats” outside the retailer’s European flagship store. Her leg was caught in a giant “steel trap”, and she held a sign proclaiming, “Canada Goose Kills.”

Images are available here, here, and here.

“Trapped coyotes endure a prolonged, painful death, all so that the fur on their backs can be torn off and sold as trim for Canada Goose’s cruelly produced coats,” says Kendall. “PETA is calling on kind people to reject cruelty to animals by refusing to give a single penny to Canada Goose.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear” – rejects speciesism, a supremacist view of the world. Coyotes caught in bone-crushing traps can endure horrific injuries and languish for days before eventually dying of dehydration, starvation, or blood loss. Some are so desperate to escape that they attempt to chew through their own limbs. In addition, birds used for the down stuffed into Canada Goose’s outerwear may spend their lives inside crowded, filthy sheds until their throats are slit.

Kendall was also one of the winners of PETA’s UK and Ireland’s Hottest Vegan Competition 2018. For more information, please visit PETA.org.uk.
