PLEASE DON'T BUY OR WEAR ANGORA FUR!

Post by Tuckerbunnies on Mon Dec 30, 2013 3:53 pm



I have noticed as a lot of other people have lots of stores have been selling Angora clothing the Angora comes from China and the Angora rabbits are kept in horrendous conditions .
The animals are kept for two to five years, with their fur being yanked out every two-three months, according to PETA Asia. When the fur has been plucked, the animals are thrown into tiny cages to recover. Once a bunny has outlived its purpose, it is killed and skinned.
‘PETA UK is appealing to shoppers this holiday season’, says PETA UK Associate Director Mimi Bekhechi. ‘Please take the time to read the label on that sweater or scarf. If it says "angora," leave the item on the rack.’

Major high street chains Gap and Zara have capitulated to mounting pressure and joined brands such Marks & Spencer, Next and H&M in banning angora fur.
The announcements follow the release of video footage that shows workers in Chinese factories violently ripping the fur from the bodies of screaming rabbits.
Disgusted consumers called for a boycott of the stores still selling the fibre, while a petition led by Washington-based nonprofit organisation SumOfUs.org asked Zara to stop the sale of items made with angora fur. The petition attracted more than 295,000 signatures.

I haven't added the photos or video to this post as they are just to horrendous and upsetting to watch.
