Protest please. Fur, Zara/Inditex group

Dear Sir, Madam:
 
I was so disappointed to see fur sold in your Zara stores when more than 50 million animals suffer and die every year for fur worldwide, including an estimated 10 million domestic cats and dogs.
Huge quantities are still getting through Customs from Asia, often mislabelled as other species or even as labelled as faux fur.
To satisfy the demand for fur, domestic cats and dogs are stolen in Asia, the largest fur exporter.
Consumers everywhere don’t even know they may be buying a product made from someone’s beloved pet.
They suffer horribly, being skinned alive because that makes it easier for the torturer to get their skin of...
 
Inditex/Zara is promoting this horrific and deceptive industry. Please help by ceasing to promote and sell fur in an effort to end this intolerable cruelty. You can find more details about this campaign if you visit www.hsi.org.au.

Animal rights people are not responsible for this. The greedy Dutch mink farmers, the nasty breed of callous designers and the bloody brain dead monsters who wear fur are responsible. They should all be flayed alive. The mentality that wears fur today is one that knowingly contributes to the torture and does not care. Who wants people like that in the world?

 2024 is over 12 years. They know it almost 15 years. That makes  1/4 century

They get millions of Euro's compensation because they will not have a job in 2024.  

They started today selling the farms to China and telling us the whole day on the radio that we , the animal right fighters,  are now responsible of the fact that the minks will have a terrible life and will be skinned alive.

And yes , Jan, selling is allowed. Always was and will be . Only seal fur is not allowed.

There is no victory. Not even for me , I tried 25 years to end the mink farm ,that's very near to my house.

Subject: Fur Free Policy

Dear Sir, Madam:

Please, stop the sale of ALL fur, including rabbit fur, and adopt a fur free policy in all its outlets. Compassion is always in fashion, cruelty NEVER is.

Why? You seem to believe that you can't do business without fur, this symbol of ridiculous vanity, based on sheer animal abuse and misery?
There is nothing fashionable or elegant about how animals are killed in the fur industry. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages.

I am disappointed that  Burberry
is promoting such outdated cruelty to animals when luxurious cruelty-free materials are readily available.

We know as well as you that rabbit fur is NOT a waste product of the meat industry – please do not repeat that untruth!

But as you seem not fully aware of the rabbit drama, I’m joining some video's for your information.

Whether it comes from minks, foxes, raccoons, chinchillas, beavers, rabbits, or lynx, fur looks best on its original owners.

Please, look at other big department stores in Europe.  They took the right decision and  stopped the sale of real animal  fur, and they are just doing fine.

It's a pity that up till now, you didn't follow their example.

Note that I never will buy at your store until you stop selling fur. I will tell all my contacts to do the same.
 
I sincerely hope that you will rethink the matter seriously. I really hope that you will very soon show some compassion towards animals.

Yours faithfully,

Subject: Cirque du Soleil , please don't perform at the opening event of Harrods Winter Sale

Dear Madam,
Dear Sir,

The opening of the Harrods Winter Sale is one of the big media events of the festive period.
I read that you will be performing at the opening event as well as officially opening the sale.

Did you know that fur farming and trapping is illegal in the UK? That Harrods is the only department store in the UK still selling fur?

Harrods seems to believe that you can't do business without fur, this symbol of ridiculous vanity, based on sheer animal abuse and misery.

Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages.
Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available.

On fur factory farms, chinchillas are confined to tiny, filth-encrusted wire cages and are killed by having their necks broken or being electrocuted.
The animals convulse, shake, and often cry out before they have heart attacks and die.
Crude killing methods aren't always effective, and sometimes animals "wake up" while they are being skinned.
Whether it comes from minks, foxes, raccoons, chinchillas, beavers, rabbits, or lynx, fur looks best on its original owners.

Compassion is always in fashion, cruelty NEVER is.

Sweden's Fur farms: new regulations.....?
3 years ago

reply:  

Thank you for your email. Kindly find below a reply from the Swedish Ministry for Rural Affairs.

 

There are approximately 70 mink farms and 2 chinchilla farms in Sweden today, but no breeding of foxes for fur production. At present there are no legislative proposals to a ban farming of minks or other animals kept for fur production. Earlier this year the Swedish Board of Agriculture adopted new regulations regarding rearing and keeping of animals intended for fur production (SJVFS 2012:14). Besides general regulations for rearing of fur animals (mink, chinchilla and fox) there are also specific regulations for mink as well as for chinchilla. The new regulations stipulate, among other things, requirements regarding the cage design (larger cages with two levels which allow the animals to move freely and express innate behaviors, and also environmental enrichment), feed supply and education of the person in charge of the animals as well as regular visits from a veterinarian. The new regulations can be found in Swedish using the link below:

 

http://www.jordbruksverket.se/download/18.7cc87f191379870d43180001373/2012-014.pdf

 

New regulations concerning rearing of rabbits intended for fur production are being prepared and will be adopted in 2013.

What's new: 'reply on Norwegian Fur Farms...'
3 years ago

With reference to your e-mail of December 4th, we would like to underline the following:

There are in fact only 270 fur farms in Norway. Norwegian fur production represents about 1 per cent of the global production of mink fur and 4 per cent of fox fur.

We would like to emphasize that Norway has been promoting animal welfare in European context for several decades. In addition, both the general Norwegian animal welfare legislation and the welfare regulation on fur production, have undergone substantial amendments over the last years, as well as the quality and frequencies of animal welfare inspections,

Based on information from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, regularly inspecting fur farms in Norway, we are sure that the animal welfare situation in Norway is generally good. The great majority of Norwegian fur farmers are running their business seriously, respecting animal welfare measures.

There are, however, a certain number of farms where unacceptable infringements have been found. These cases have been dealt with both by the competent authorities as well as by the industry itself.

Fur farmers who do not respect the professional guidelines and the animal welfare regulation on fur farming, may be excluded from their organisation.

Finally, we thank you for your efforts in the cause of the welfare of our fur animals.

Sincerely,
The Norwegian Royal Embassy in Paris.

Subject: Norway's Furfarms


Dear Sir, Madam:

Norway remains one of the world's foremost fur producing countries with about 500 fur farms (fox and mink) in the country. The fur industry often tries to portray Norway as an example of more humane fur farming practices, and has been trying to push the idea of so called ethical or humane fur as an alternative to an outright ban on the trade. This investigation completely undermines these claims.



Throughout Summer 2008 the group Nettverk for dyrs frihet, (Network for Animal Freedom) travelled the country to see how the farm animals are actually treated. We inspected more than 100 randomly chosen fur farms in every county where such farms exist, covering over 20 percent of the fur farms in Norway. At each farm, we took pictures, filmed and made reports about the general conditions (in addition to any specific animal welfare issues). The investigation revealed widespread and systematic animal abuse, some of the worst fur farm footage yet.


On Monday 10th November, a documentary based on these findings was aired on Norwegian TV at the same time we are launching our website www.forbypels.no (alternatively in English; www.forbypels.no/english)
Other fur producing countries such as Finland will also be shown in the documentary on TV.


You'll find everything on the website, info, pictures, our documentary .



The group has produced their own video about our investigation that will be subtitled in English, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish.

----

I am protesting the cruel suffering inflicted on defenseless fur bearing animals in Norway.
I ask you to please make Norway fur farm free, following the example of civilized countries in Europe such as the United Kingdom.

Nordstrom is an extremely popular store among consumers and the fashion industry. Currently, Nordstrom continues to sell animal fur items in its stores. While some may argue that animal fur is quite “fashionable”, the process of obtaining and making animal fur items is pure cruelty. Nordstrom must take a stand against animal cruelty and stop the sales of all animal fur items in its stores.

The Horror of Sweden's Fur Farms Exposed - Take Action Now!!!

The Animal Rights Alliance in Sweden have just released the shocking results of their 18 month investigation in to the Swedish Mink Farming Industry, including sick and injured animals, stereotypical behaviour and cannibalism.

Full details of the investigation can be found here:--
http://www.sveketmotminkarna.se/horror-revealed-swedish-fur-farms

Sample Letter:

To the attention of the Government of Sweden,

I'm writing to you today to express my horror at the shocking animal welfare standards on Swedish mink farms that have been exposed in a recent investigation conducted by the Animal Rights Alliance in Sweden.
Full details of their investigation can be found here:--
http://www.sveketmotminkarna.se

As I'm sure you will be aware, in 2003 the Swedish Commission of Inquiry into the Fur Industry gave Swedish fur farms until 2010 to comply with the Animal Welfare Act (1988:534), however seven years later we can conclude that the Swedish fur industry has done absolutely nothing to improve conditions for mink on fur farms in that time!
It is evident that the Fur Industry and Animal Welfare are completely incompatible, and therefore I urge you in the strongest possible terms to ensure that both the Swedish Animal Welfare Act (1988:534) is properly enforced and that the decision of the Swedish Commission of Inquiry into the Fur Industry is acted upon.

Sincerely, YOUR NAME / YOUR COUNTRY

Reply Intersport, in the future they will go fur-free...
3 years ago

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

vielen Dank für Ihr E-Mail.

Bitte erlauben Sie uns, unseren Zugang zu dem wichtigen und auch bei Intersport Österreich regelmäßig hinterfragten Thema Echtpelz näher auszuführen.

Zunächst ein paar Worte über uns und unsere Organisationsform: Intersport Österreich ist eine Vereinigung von 125 selbstständigen Sporthändlern im ganzen Land, die ihre Sortimente alle selbstständig planen. Über das Thema Pelz wird in den einzelnen Mitgliedsunternehmen, aber auch im Verbund derzeit kontrovers diskutiert.

Sie sehen es sicher positiv, dass unsere Produkte überall dort, wo Intersport die Herstellung aktiv beeinflussen kann, pelzfrei sind. Konkret bedeutet das, Sie haben bei unseren Marken McKinley, Firefly und Etirel die Gewissheit, dass kein Echtpelz verarbeitet wird.

Textilien mit Echtpelz-Krägen oder -Verbrämungen, die Intersport-Händler von anderen Markenherstellern zukaufen, müssen selbstverständlich den höchstmöglichen technischen, aber auch ethischen Qualitätsstandard erfüllen. Wir sehen es an Reaktionen wie der Ihren, dass viele Kunden Echtpelz-Textilien aus moralischen Gründen prinzipiell ablehnen. Diese Haltung verdient Respekt und ist ein gewichtiger Standpunkt mit vielen Gleichgesinnten. Wir bieten naturgemäß nur Produkte an, für die es bei unseren Kunden eine Nachfrage gibt. Wir haben allerdings auch viele Kunden, die es von uns als Vollanbieter im Fitness- und Freizeit-Bereich erwarten, mit Pelzen bestückte Textilien kaufen zu können.

Ihren Arbeitsauftrag an uns, nämlich das Sortiment in allen Intersport-Shops frei von Echtpelzen zu machen, nehmen wir an. Wir bitten Sie allerdings um Verständnis, dass das nicht von heute auf morgen funktioniert. Zunächst treten wir mit den Markenherstellern in Kontakt, um sie davon zu überzeugen, bei ihren Kollektionen künftig Alternativen zu Echtpelz zu verwenden. In der Zwischenzeit setzt jeder Kunde, der sich bei Intersport für eine pelzfreie Winterjacke entscheidet, ein deutliches Zeichen, das uns bei unserem Vorhaben unterstützt.

Herzliche Grüße
Ihr Intersport-Team

Protest the sale of Fur at Intersport!
3 years ago

To: kundenservice@intersport.at, Bernhard.winkler@intersport.at

Subject: Pelz, Intersport

Geehrter Herr, geehrte Frau:

Wir wissen wahrscheinlich besser wovon wir reden müssen wir doch das Ausmaß der Tragödie so oft mit eigenen Augen bezeugen, ungeschönt, immer dann, wenn wir die Pelzfarmen ohne jede Ankündigung aufgesuchen um hinter die Kulissen zu blicken!
Und jener Blick ist immer im gleichen Masse erschütternd, egal ob in Deutschland, in Tschechien, in Holland, in Rumänien getätigt, wo immer diese Art der Tierqaul beschämendswerter Weise noch immer erlaubt ist.

Gütesiegel sind in diesem Zusammenhang ein Hohn, vor allem wenn man bedenkt, dass die Tiere normalerweise in derart riesigen Revieren leben, und schon allein deshalb in den winzigen Käfigen nie artgerecht gehalten werden können.

Ich werde keinen Einkauf mehr tätigen, solange der Konzern nicht davon Abstand nimmt mit Echtpelzprodukten Handel zu treiben.
Wir leben in einer gewinnspannenorientierten Zeit, und einzig und allein der Faktor ‚Umsatz‘ scheint die Macht zu besitzen nicht nur von ethischer Korrektheit zu sprechen sondern diese auch zu verinnerlichen!

Hochachtungsvoll,

----------------------------------
Google translation

Dear Sir, madam:

We probably know better when we talk about the tragedy so often witnessed with our own eyes, gritty, whenever we look up the fur farms without any announcement to see behind the scenes!
And that view is always the same mass staggering, whether in Germany, the Czech Republic, Holland, made ​​in Romania, wherever this type of shameless animal abuse is still allowed.

Seal of approval in this context are a travesty, especially when you consider that the animals normally live in such vast territories, and for that reason alone in the tiny cages can never be kept under appropriate conditions.

I will not make any purchase as long as the group does not refrain to trade with real fur products trade.
We live in a time-based profit margins, and the sole factor, turnover 'seems to have the power not only to speak of ethical correctness but also to internalize!

Subject: Make the switch to faux-fur in all your designs!


QVC Incorporated, Office of the President

1200 Wilson Drive

West Chester PA 19380

Phone: 1-484-701-1000


Dennis Basso Couture Inc.

765 Madison Avenue

New York, NY 10065

Phone: 212- 794-4400

Fax: 212-288-2947


Dear Sir,


Dennis Basso fur show —hoto credit: NY Magazine


How sad that some women still think they look good in tortured, live skinned, murdered animals- skins.


How much shame should the industry feel?


“In spite of his fabulous faux-fur reputation on QVC, Dennis Basso is also known as the “furrier to the stars,” and his Madison Avenue boutique is filled with the pricey skins of mink, foxes, coyotes, rabbits, wolves, chinchillas, lynx, sable, alligator, raccoons, goats, and other animals that are trapped, snared, shot, clubbed, gassed and electrocuted, all to produce frivolous garments and trims for which alternatives exist and which Basso already uses for his lucrative faux-fur designs, “says Edita Birnkrant, NY Director of Friends of Animals.

“While we applaud his decision to sell only faux-fur products on the QVC shopping network, we also believe that Basso is in a unique position to cause a transition to an entirely faux-fur line, in addition to cease the use of suede and leather in his designs,” says Valerie Kaye, Communication Director for Friends of Animals.


Elena Bass, resident of Steelton, PA and a longtime QVC shopper informed us that she was looking to buy a faux-sable coat and in an internet search came across a QVC Dennis Basso coat she liked. But to Elena’s horror, she discovered that Basso is also a major designer of real fur by clicking on a link to an article about NYC’s Fashion Week that showed a photo of a real chinchilla coat designed by Basso.

Elena explains, “Before that, I had no idea that Mr. Basso used real fur. When I told my friends, they were shocked; they didn’t know either.” In fact, Elena says she used to buy Dennis Basso pants on QVC and loved the way they fit, but now says, “My QVC card is empty since I found out about this. I won’t buy anything from QVC until Mr. Basso changes. And I had no idea QVC would even consider selling products by someone who uses real fur in his designs. I thought that fight was over.”


Elena adds, “I can’t believe that QVC would be so archaic in their thinking. Most reasonable people understand that there is no need to wear real fur anymore.”


Whether trapped in the wild or bred in captivity and skinned alive, real fur has no place in an enlightened society, and the tremendous popularity of Dennis Basso’s faux-fur designs on QVC shows that the public believes the same.


Your fur skin designs once belonged to animals that were born in that skin. It belongs to them, and so does their freedom.

Other animals, like us, deserve to live free of exploitation and harm, and I urge you to join the modern era and become the premiere purveyor of extraordinary faux-fur garments to the stars.


I pledge to boycott your products until Dennis Basso ditches real fur.


Sincerely:

protest against the selling of Fur at Bulberry!

angela.ahrendts@burberry.com, corporate.responsibility@burberry.com, customerservice@burberry.com, press.office@burberry.com, tailoring@burberry.com, bespoke@burberry.com, Sample letter:

Dear Sir, Madam;

I would like to address myself to you because of the fur your shop is still selling.
As you know, many celebrities worldwide stopped using fur because of the horrific cruel way fur is 'produced' .
Millions of animals, cats, dogs, raccoon dogs, foxes, rabbits, the list is endless, are kept under terrible conditions and then
skinned while still alive, because, according to the Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Korean skinners, amongst others, involved in this, 'the hair on the coat will
stand up better because of the excruciating pain inflicted on the animal ' and 'because it is easier while the body is still warm'.......
These people are without any mercy, compassion or ethics. I cannot believe that you would be able to accept the way these animals, often stolen pets, have to suffer.
I refer to the following links:
http://www.tierschutz.com/movies/pelz_mediaplayer.wmv

http://www.all-creatures.org/anex/raccdog.html

The other kind of fur comes from trapping: magnificent animals who are trapped in there own surroundings and suffer in agony for days, sometimes weeks.

There are beautiful alternatives for the coats of our animal earthlings, easier to wear and to clean, synthetic imitation fur.

I hope you will be convinced, and stop selling fur!

Federal Trade Commission
600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington DC 20580


To Whom It May Concern,

Regarding Fur Rules Review, Matter No. P074201: Raccoon dogs are among the most mistreated animals for their fur, and consumers deserve to know when fur from raccoon dogs is trimming garments.

The fur industry has a long history of misrepresentation in order to sell its cruel product -- now they want to be allowed to sell raccoon dog under the name "Asiatic raccoon" no doubt so consumers won't make the connection to the live skinning and other abuses of this animal that have been well documented.

Raccoon dogs are a member of the Canidae (dog) family and are NOT, as the name "Asiatic raccoon" implies, members of the Procyonidae (raccoon) family.

All reputable governmental and scientific sources, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Smithsonian Institution, call raccoon dogs just that.

Inaccurate trade names like "Asiatic raccoon" and "Finn raccoon" are misleading and serve only to disguise the live skinning and other mistreatment of raccoon dogs.

Sir,

Just last year, you pledged to discontinue the use of animal fur altogether, and yet his most recent clothing line demonstrates just the opposite.
It exhibits rabbit fur as one of your most popular materials. It's even being marketed for children and babies.

Rabbit fur operations were recently uncovered in both France and China, where large-scale rabbit slaughter facilities were exposed.

Rabbits are thrown into tiny wire cages that hurt their delicate feet, and they're treated much like vermin.
When it comes time to kill them, rabbits at these locations were shown to be hung upside down shortly before their skin was cruelly ripped from their bodies.

I urge you to stop supporting this cruelty and naming it "fashion".
Your successful company can do quite well without torturing small animals.

Sincerely,
