Please support PETA with this very important campaign – China again !!

PETA visited angora farms in China that were deemed “humane” by third-party auditors, and we confirmed with our own eyes that live rabbits’ fur is ripped out of their skin and they’re forced to live in horrendous conditions, despite assurances to the contrary.

On these farms, most rabbits were suffering from a severe skin irritation, and in many cases the animals weren’t offered any treatment for serious and chronic infections, sores, malnutrition, and respiratory distress.

Some rabbits were so sick and weak that they were lying in their own waste, motionless or panting. This is yet another example showing that the auditing system is a farce that protects suppliers and retailers rather than animals, regardless of “standards” that might be in place.

There is no way to mass-produce angora humanely. Because of the cruelty involved, more than 110 top retailers have banned angora, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Ann Inc., H&M, and Inditex.

Yet Free People, which is owned by Urban Outfitters, continues to sell cruel angora wool.

Please take a moment to urge Free People to stop selling angora wool immediately.

The Video That Started It All

They were the screams heard around the world. Undercover footage shot by PETA Asia revealed extreme yet routine cruelty to angora rabbits, whose long, soft fur is often used in sweaters and accessories. See the footage for yourself: Link above.
