PHOTOS: BLOODY, TRAPPED ‘COYOTE’ PROTESTS CANADA GOOSE
Action Is Part of PETA’s Campaign to End Trapping and Killing of Coyotes for Fur-Trimmed Coats
Dublin – Today, an eye-catching demonstration in Dublin saw activists – accompanied by a bloody “coyote” in a steel trap – holding signs which read, “Don’t Buy Canada Goose This Christmas” and “Coyotes Suffer for Canada Goose.” The head-turning action is part of PETA’s campaign urging Canada Goose the retailer to drop coyote fur and switch to innovative, cruelty-free faux fur.
“Coyotes not only look like dogs but also are equally sensitive, playful, and intelligent,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “PETA urges compassionate shoppers to shun Canada Goose’s cruelly produced jackets, which are trimmed with coyote fur.”
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear” – notes that Canada Goose’s fur trim comes from coyotes who are caught in barbaric, bone-crushing steel traps. They sustain horrific injuries and can languish for days before eventually dying of hunger, thirst, or blood loss. Some are so desperate to escape that they attempt to chew through their own limbs.
