Stop killing beavers for their fur

Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages. Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gas, and poison.

Animals who are trapped in the wild can suffer for days from blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. They may be caught in steel-jaw traps that slam down on their legs, often cutting to the bone; Conibear traps, which crush their necks with 90 pounds of pressure per square inch; or water-set traps, which leave beavers, muskrats, and other animals struggling for more than nine agonizing minutes before drowning.

The body-gripping traps used to capture and kill beavers cause these sensitive animals immeasurable suffering. In many cases, Conibear (body-gripping) traps fail to catch the animals quickly or on target. If the traps do not kill the beavers immediately, they can slowly drown, suffering for up to 20 minutes. Death by drowning is extremely cruel.

Only animals should wear fur!

      We have so many other options for clothing that killing animals for their fur is not necessary. In fact we can even make fake fur from fibers that so closely resemble animal fur that this makes killing for fur is archaic and outdated. The fur is much more use to the animal. We have no right to kill to stuff some vanity driven person's ego!

      Stop murdering already! Is there more to humanity then just butchering every living creature on earth? Are you people sick and tired of torturing, maiming and killing? Take a break, read a book, do something constructive for a change
