Only animals should wear furs. Stop killing rabbits for fur!

About a billion rabbits are killed yearly for their skins. Like other animals who are farmed for their fur, rabbits—who are extremely clean by nature—are kept in tiny, filthy cages, surrounded by their own waste. They spend their entire miserable lives standing on the thin cage wires that constantly cut into their sensitive footpads, never having a chance to dig, jump, or play. Fur farmers kill rabbits using cruel methods—breaking their necks or beating in their skulls—before stringing them up by the legs and cutting off their heads.

Angora rabbits are strapped to a board for shearing, kicking powerfully in protest. The clippers inevitably bite into their flesh, with bloody results. Angoras have very delicate foot pads, making life on a wire cage floor excruciating and ulcerated feet a common condition. Because male Angora rabbits have only 75 to 80 percent of the wool yield of females, they are killed at birth on many farms.

      The way they kill and take the fur off from rabbits is immoral and cruel.

      Animals are innocent creatures! We need to stop abusing them in any way! Please! Imagine if you switched shoes with these animals that are undergoing torture and pain. Would you be okay with it? No! If you don't wish something to happen upon yourself, do not allow it to happen to animals! And most certainly, do not support it!

      Animals are not ours to use and abuse!
