Demand Online Retailer End Sale of Angora Wool and Fur

Oikeutta Eläimille Fur Farm

Target: Jonathan Nielsen, CEO of Backcountry

Goal: End Backcountry’s sale of angora and fur products obtained at the expense of neglected and abused animals.

Online retailer Backcountry sells outdoor wear containing cruelly-sourced angora wool and furs to people all over the world. Unfortunately, the company continues to sell these products despite knowledge of the horrors that happen in the fur industry.

Backcountry puts an emphasis on people’s relationship with nature. It is hypocritical to abuse and confine nature’s creatures for profit while simultaneously encouraging people to take in all the natural beauty this earth has to offer. Angora rabbits and animals used for fur are typically imprisoned in tiny, dirty cages where they are neglected and abused for their coats.

Sign this petition and demand Backcountry stop selling products using angora and fur. It is hypocritical and cruel to do this to earth’s creatures.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Nielsen,

Your company is based around the love of nature and helping people experience earth’s natural beauty firsthand. That is why I find it very hypocritical of you to continue the sale of angora and fur.

Part of experiencing nature is observing wildlife. In the fur industry, animals are typically held in small, dirty cages where they are neglected and abused. These animals don’t get to experience the grass beneath their feet or running free through the trees.

Please consider ending your sale of fur and angora wool so all of earth’s creatures can enjoy nature to the fullest extent.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. I am so outraged that, even after being told about the barbaric footage of rabbits having the fur ripped right off of their bodies while they scream in pain, Backcountry.com still persists in selling angora items. This is nothing short of despicable!

    In today’s modern society, there are cruelty-free fabrics all around us and absolutely no excuse for Backcountry.com to continue to sell angora. Competitors of yours which include Zappos, QVC, Gap Inc., H&M, PUMA, Lands’ End, Eddie Bauer, Inditex, Calvin Klein, as well as dozens of others, have made the compassionate decision to go angora-free.

    I will not shop at Backcountry.com and will tell everyone I can what your company does. And, I am on the computer every, single day.

  3. HOW CAN ANYONE FEEL BEAUTIFUL IN WEARING A FUR GARMENT THAT COMES FROM SUCH UGLINESS. The cruel treatment and suffering the fur animals are put through for the sake of fashion is appalling. I could NEVER wear fur after learning and seeing the horrid videos of these sensitive animals being abused on a daily basis. Backcountry could not give me a free fur coat or any other garment to wear. Your company is backsliding and behind the times for the ethical humane treatment for animals. By continuing to sell your fur clothing is saying that your company supports animal abuse. You phony hypocrites! Enjoy spending your blood money when on your nature trips.
