Help save animals

January 21, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

PETA and PETA Asia have investigated live-pluck operations that supply down to clothing companies. Eyewitnesses saw workers rip geese’s feathers out—leaving open, bloody wounds—while the birds were fully conscious. Many struggled and screamed in terror as their feathers were torn out, while others froze, paralyzed with fear.
Some companies claim that they don’t use down from live-plucked birds, but it’s nearly impossible to track feathers to their original supplier. In addition, birds who aren’t plucked alive or force-fed still spend their entire lives in crowded, filthy conditions on factory farms before being killed in a violent, painful way.

The vast majority of birds used for down endure a lifetime of misery. When they’re finally sent to slaughter, their throats are slit—often while they’re still fully conscious—and many are scalded to death in defeathering tanks. Regardless of whether they’re force-fed or live-plucked, all birds used for down are eventually killed in a terrifying way.

Speak Up for Ducks and Geese

Urge Kathmandu to stop selling down. Once you take this first action, a different action alert urging another retailer to stop selling down will appear. Each time you click “Take Action,” a letter will be sent to another company that’s profiting from abused birds.

Investigations have repeatedly shown that birds suffer immensely in down production. Yet Kathmandu is still selling products of cruelty.
