The Canada Goose symbol represents anything but warmth. The fur trim that lines the hoods of the company’s winter jackets comes from wild coyotes who were trapped, killed, and skinned

Canada Goose fur is sourced through licensed trappers, who use rubber-edged leg traps and kill coyotes with a gunshot to the brain just to get fur for their jackets. Once caught, these animals can suffer for days. Those who don’t succumb to the elements, blood loss, infection, or predators are shot, bludgeoned, or killed in some other horrific way when the trappers return. Every piece of fur trim comes from an animal who didn’t want to die.  
Canada Goose jackets are products of cruelty, and it’s not just coyotes who are killed. The company also uses down from birds who died violently.

Geese used for their down are inevitably sent to the slaughterhouse, where standard practice is to hang them upside down, stun them, and then slit their throats—often while they’re still conscious. There’s no need for any of this cruelty when so many fashionable, functional alternatives to fur and down exist. 

Canada Goose say it sources coyote fur ethically, in accordance with Canada's Agreement of International Humane Trapping Standards (AIHTS), established in 1997 to set a standard for trapping wild animals. Canada Goose also abides by similar regulations in the U.S., where fur is governed by a policy called Best Management Practices (BMP).
