Charlotte Maniatt started this petition to Depop and

Depop still allow the sale of real fur made from a multitude of animals. Raccoon, rabbit and fox are commonly advertised but with no way of telling where these furs are sourced- it could easily be dog and cat fur. Canada Goose coats are common on Depop- the fur of which is made from Coyote. Coyotes are wild dogs native to Canada and the US and are trapped by hunters before being shot or clubbed to death. It is common for coyotes to try and chew their paws off in desperation to try and free themselves from the metal traps.

Sourcing fur is barbaric. Animals are kept in squalid, tiny cages which are stacked on top of each other causing them to be caked in their own faeces and urine. They are force fed so that they become obese and therefore have bigger furs. People think that they must be kept in nice conditions to keep the fur looking healthy but this is simply not the case. Animals are often electrocuted, drowned, poisoned or even skinned alive, prolonging the torture and inevitable dearth.

Please sign this petition to help ban the sale of fur on Depop and Etsy. It is not only vintage fur that is sold on these apps- many sellers are advertising new products which they most likely source from countries with terrible human working conditions and no animal rights laws. Fur is cruel, and must be banned. Would you skin your dog? No? Then we must stand up to this barbaric practice by urging Depop and Etsy to stop contributing to the fur trade. 

There is no such thing as ‘ethical fur’. Fur is not beauty. Fur is ugly cruelty.
