Why would anyone want to decorate a handbag with the #fur of #animals who spent their entire lives confined to a filthy cage before finally being beaten, electrocuted, gassed, or skinned alive?
But international retailer Furla continues to sell fur key chains despite hearing from #PETA numerous times that animals suffer in the fur trade.
Fur farmers use the cheapest slaughter methods available in order to keep the animals' pelts intact, including neck-breaking, suffocation, poisonous gas, and genital electrocution, all of which result in agonizing pain. Workers hang the animals by their legs or tails, stomp on their necks if they struggle, and peel their skin and fur over their heads. Then they're thrown onto a pile of bodies, where some remain alive—panting in ragged gasps—for as long as 10 minutes.
Much of the world's fur comes from China, where laws to protect animals are either nonexistent or unenforced. But the atrocious conditions and killing methods are remarkably uniform in the fur industry around the globe. No matter where it comes from, fur is a product of cruelty. Hundreds of major designers and retailers—including Giorgio Armani, Stella McCartney, Nicole Miller, Bottega Veneta, Vivienne Westwood, and Ralph Lauren—have already banned it.
The only fur sold by #Furla is on its key chains, which could easily be discontinued or replaced with a faux-fur version. Please write to the CEO of Furla to urge him to do the right thing by animals and end all fur sales now.
