Target: Dani Reiss, CEO of Canada Goose Inc.
Goal: End Canada Goose’s use of cruelly-obtained fur and down in their products.
Many of Canada Goose’s products feature fur and down, which both come from the bodies of tortured animals. Canada Goose is a popular retailer known for its cold weather clothing.
The fur used comes from wild coyotes. Traps are used to catch the animals where they can spend several days. These coyotes face many hardships including blood loss, gangrene, dehydration and shock. If the coyote is still alive when the trapper returns, they are typically strangled, stomped on, or bludgeoned to death. The down comes from geese and ducks that also face hardships and painful deaths.
There are many cruelty-free alternatives that can be used to replace down and fur. It is time to take advantage of these alternatives and to stop the needless suffering. Sign this petition and demand Canada Goose starts using these alternatives.
Dear Mr. Reiss,
Your company, Canada Goose, is known for providing quality outerwear for cold weather. Unfortunately, many of your products use fur and down which come from the bodies of tortured animals.
The fur comes from wild coyotes which are caught using traps. The coyotes can be stuck in the traps for days and face blood loss, gangrene, dehydration and shock. If the coyote is still alive when the trapper returns then they are typically strangled, stomped on, or bludgeoned to death. The down used in your products comes from geese and ducks that also face hardships and painful, violent deaths.
Thankfully, there are many cruelty-free alternatives available nowadays. It is time to start using these alternatives and to end the needless suffering. No animal’s life is worth an article of clothing.
