Tell Gap: Stop Squeezing Profits From Screaming

December 18, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

PETA Asia’s stunning new undercover video footage of angora fur farms shows workers in China—where about 90 percent of the world’s angora fur comes from—tying rabbits down and ripping their fur out while they scream in fear and pain. Thrown back into their tiny, filthy cages, many of them were clearly in deep shock and couldn’t move, eat, or drink. The rabbits endure this terrifying ordeal every three months for up to five years, then they are hung upside down and their throats are slit. 

We are pleased to announce that after discussions with PETA, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger—and all other retailers owned by PVH Corp.—are banning and pulling from their shelves any products made with angora!

Let’s keep the momentum going! While PVH is proving that cruelty to animals has no place in its stores, Gap Inc. has failed to take any action whatsoever. These gentle angora rabbits need your help immediately! Please contact Gap Inc. CEO Glenn K. Murphy and ask the company—which also owns Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Athleta—to stop selling angora products NOW.

Help Bunnies!Please share this alert on Facebook and Twitter and ask everyone you know to join you in asking Gap to ban angora!
