Stop Selling Fur Cruelly Ripped Off Angora Rabbits

angora-oldhaus

Target: Martin McClanan, CEO of Norm Thompson

Goal: Stop Norm Thompson from selling products that contain angora fur.

Major clothing retailer Norm Thompson continues to sell products that contain angora fur despite knowing the fur comes from the bodies of tortured rabbits.

Rabbits used for their fur typically live in small, dirty cages where they have limited access to food and water. Every three months, they have their fur ripped out while still conscious and with no use of any pain relief. Their lives are short and filled with misery and pain. When they don’t produce as much fur as desired, they are killed in whatever way is cheapest and most convenient. Typical ways are strangulation, suffocation and neck-breaking.

Sign this petition to demand Norm Thompson stop selling products containing angora fur. No animal should be tortured and killed for clothing.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. McClanan,

Your company continues to sell products that contain angora fur despite knowing angora fur comes from the bodies of tortured rabbits. This is incredibly cruel and unnecessary.

Rabbits who are abused for their fur often live in small, dirty cages where they have limited access to food and clean water. Every three months, these rabbits go through incredible pain as they have their fur ripped out. This is done without the use of any pain relief and all while still conscious. Life at an angora fur farm is hell on earth.

Please consider no longer selling products that contain angora fur. These animals should not be tortured and killed for an article of clothing. There are many other cruelty-free materials available that should be put to use instead.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. CRUEL and unnecessary… The industry is now apparently concentrated in China – apparently, lack of legislation governing how it can be produced has appalling consequences for the 50 million angora rabbits industrially farmed across China. Media documents that live rabbits are tied by their front and back paws and plucked raw. Hair is ripped from their bodies to ensure fibers are as long and heavy as possible – the pain and shock of which causes the rabbits to scream… They are then put back into cruel cramped wire cages to grow their hair back, ready for plucking again. After three years the rabbits have their throats cut…
    The fashion industry attempts to put a glamorous face on this grim reality. ENOUGH. NO NEED to promote brutality and torture when there are now so many COOL, fabulous and superior alternatives…
