Wild Child in Norwood and Hyde Park, South Australia have been advertising clothing containing real rabbit fur as part of their new arrivals for winter. The items are made by the horrible Australian designer Jennifer Kate whose whole collection consists almost entirely of fur, silk and leather.
Please sign and share the petition below to let Wild Child know we don't want fur in Adelaide, or anywhere else for that matter.
Each year over 50 million animals are slaughtered worldwide for their fur. Enduring the cramped conditions of their farmed life, they know nothing of a true existence and are then murdered in horrific ways. Animals are skinned alive, left to bleed out fully conscious, beaten to death, anally and vaginally electrocuted; the list goes on.
Not only this but recent shipments of fur to Australia, used by Australian designers, has been found to contain that of cat and dog fur – the fur you are selling may very well contain the hair of man’s best friend. We ask you to consider the message you are sending to your buyers and what it is you are overlooking.
In order to further your understanding and knowledge of this trade, please watch this undercover footage supplied by PETA showing the truth behind the fur industry: http://youtube/k87wTVwGz0g and http://youtu.be/DE56fAD3HyE.
By selling, condoning and promoting fur you are undeniably supporting this severe form of animal violence.
I urge you to reconsider the sale of fur in your store.
