Tell Gap: Stop Squeezing Profits From Screaming Rabbits!

This petition had 4,959 supporters


UPDATE: Following an appeal from PETA, retail giant Gap Inc., which owns Banana Republic, Old Navy, and Athleta, said that it has “no plans” to obtain angora wool. PETA is urging the company to take the next logical step and permanently ban products made with angora, as dozens of other kind retailers—including Eddie Bauer, Forever 21, Limited Brands, Mango, H&M, Lands’ End, Calvin Klein, and Tommy Hilfiger—have already done.

PETA Asia's stunning new undercover investigation of angora fur farms—which reveals horrific cruelty to rabbits—has people in shock and companies declaring "no more angora," but Gap Inc. isn't budging and is keeping angora clothing on its racks.

PETA Asia's investigative footage shows workers in China—where about 90 percent of the world's angora fur comes from—tying rabbits down and ripping their fur out while they scream in fear and pain. Thrown back into their tiny, filthy cages, many of them were clearly in deep shock and couldn't move, eat, or drink. The rabbits endure this terrifying ordeal every three months for up to five years, then they are hung upside down and their throats are slit.

These gentle angora rabbits need your help immediately! Please contact Gap Inc. CEO Glenn K. Murphy and ask the company—which also owns Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Athleta—to stop selling angora products NOW.
