I understand that your stores are selling fur. I'm sure that if you knew what goes on behind the scenes in the fur industry, you would not want these cruel products to be a part of your store. Millions of animals, including rabbits, raccoons, and foxes, are painfully trapped in steel-jaw leg hold traps each year. Those who don’t freeze or starve are usually beaten to death or suffocated when the trapper arrives hours or days later. Animals held captive on fur farms spend their short lives crowded in wire cages where they suffer from inadequate water, disease, parasites, and stress. The animals are killed by anal electrocution, poisoning, or suffocation. Those who don’t die immediately are skinned alive. People assume that a scrap of fur on the collar is fake and I assure you that many would be appalled to learn that it is real. In addition, over two million cats and dogs are killed in China for their fur. Each year, more and more consumers are becoming aware of the horrors against animals done by the fur industry and have been letting companies know that they do not want any part of it. I trust that you cannot, in good conscience, support this unnecessary torture inflicted upon millions of animals each year. I hope you will decide to eliminate the sale of fur from your stores after considering this information. I will not shop at your store until you are fur free. Thank you for your time and attention.
