I am asking all of you to help me stop Etsy allow their merchants to sell and advertise cruel and unethical products such as rabbit skins and heads or "masks" like one of the sellers call it.  It came to my attention that a seller on Etsy that goes by the name Fibersall sells rabbit masks in the roundspotted hair. These seller claims that rabbits that are beheaded are treated with respect before they are killed for meat, but the heads  of rabbits for sale like angora for example do not come from breeds that are used for meat. The heads that are sold for $20 are heads of real rabbits who are incredibly affectionate creatures and who do not deserve their heads taken off for proffit or being skinned for someone to make proffit off of their misery. Please help me get through to Etsy, and ban sellers like Fibersall from Etsy and any other website that they might sell this monstrosity from. The owned of this Fibersall shop showed no compasion for animals but sees them as means of proffit, here is a link to the article just to give you a little more information on the owner of the Fibersall: http://www.fws.gov/news/newsreleases/showNews.cfm?newsId=18972091-C1CE-5D0A-44AEFA54BC3DA15E.

 Pledge to not buy anything from Etsy or do any kind of business with Etsy untill they ban the selling of rabbit heads and skins on their website!

All together we can make a difference, we won't change the whole world, but we will change the world of these poor animals. Thank you for speaking up on behalf of those who do not have a voice!

      They sell all kinds of ANIMAL skins. Soon they will be extinct. Should be illegal.

      I shall boycott Etsy and encourage all my associates to do the same unless dead animals and animal body parts are banned from Etsy. What kind of enterprise would allow people to get away with this?
