Every year, millions of animals are killed for the clothing industry, and 85 percent of fur comes from the hell-on-Earth known as the "factory fur farm." Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages where they have only enough room to take a few steps in any direction.
Fur farmers use the cheapest killing methods available, including neck-breaking, suffocation, poisoning, and anal or vaginal electrocution. Many animals are electrocuted by having rods inserted into their rectums and 240 volts of electricity sent through their bodies, frying the animals from the inside out in order to keep from damaging the pelt. The animals convulse, shake, and often cry out before suffering painful heart attacks. Crude killing methods aren't always effective, and sometimes animals "wake up" while they are being skinned.
More than half the fur in the U.S. comes from China, where millions of dogs and cats are bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and sometimes even skinned alive for their fur. And Chinese fur is often deliberately mislabeled, so, if you wear any fur, there's no way of knowing whose skin you're in.
Donna Karan knows about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, but her clothing lines now contain the skins of dead rabbits.
Please take action and boycott Donna Karan, the bunny butcher, until she permanently removes all fur from her collections.
