The text from the protest leaflets:
Canada Goose uses real coyote fur on their fur trims.
Wild coyotes trapped for the company’s fur-trimmed jackets can suffer for days and face blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. Mothers desperate to get back
to their starving pups have been known to chew off their own limbs to escape. Animals who don’t succumb to the elements, blood loss, infection, or predators are often strangled, stomped on,
or bludgeoned to death when the trapper returns – all for the fur trim on your coat.
COYOTE FUR TRIM:
The infamous leg-hold trap is STILL legal in every province and territory across Canada and remains the most widely used trap, despite being banned in many countries across the world.
Many animals die trying to free themselves, as well as from dehydration, blood loss, and hypothermia. Some animals become so desperate as the days pass that they break teeth chewing through their own limbs trying to escape.
Because traps are not selective, endangered species and pets can and do get caught.
You can donate your fur trim to an animal shelter or sanctuary where they can use it as bedding.
THE TRUTH ABOUT DOWN:
The coldhearted and cruel down industry often plucks geese alive in order to get their down – the soft layer of feathers closest to a bird’s skin.
Once their feathers are ripped out, many of the birds, paralyzed with fear, are left with gaping wounds – some even die as a result of the procedure. Workers often sew the birds’ skin back together without using any anesthetics.
Buying down can also support the cruelty of the foie gras and meat industries because many farmers who raise birds for food make an extra profit by selling their feathers as well.
Please do not continue to support and promote the cruelty of Canada Goose. There are ethical alternatives that are just as warm!
