An activist wearing a replica Canada Goose jacket showed onlookers how coyotes are caught in painful steel traps for their fur.
Winter-wear brand Canada Goose – which sells its coats and accessories in the UK – uses fur taken from coyotes trapped and killed in this way. These barbaric steel traps crush animals’ necks or slam shut on their legs, often cutting to the bone.
Ensnared animals can suffer for days, facing blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. Mothers desperate to get back to their starving pups have even been known to chew through their own limbs in an attempt to escape. Animals who haven’t already died are often strangled, stamped on, or bludgeoned to death when the trapper returns.
The best way to take action against Canada Goose is to leave these jackets – and any other fur-trimmed garments – on the shelves. You can also order PETA’s free stickers and leaflets to share with anyone you think should know about the retailer’s cruelty:
