Every day millions of animals are killed for their pelts; they are either skinned alive, electrocuted, killed in gas chambers or beaten to death. But when the skin is being taken of their bodies they are still alive most of the times, and even afterwards. I am asking everyone to help stop this inhumane practice by banning the sale of furs in NYC stores.
Why do those animals need to suffer and die only for the sake of fashion and vanity? There are so many different synthetic fibers nowadays available that could substitute furs.
A lot of times those furs are imported from China, and they used to belong to dogs and cats like the ones you have in your homes; more expensive furs come from animals kept in tiny cages for their whole life, and left to themselves untreated and in miserable conditions, until they are finally killed for their skin. Please go take a look at some videos on the PETA website, you will fully understand the urge of this matter.
Let's give a huge signal from what is probably the most important center of the fashion industry, New York City. The City of West Hollywood already started this. Let's not waste the opportunity of becoming better people.
