The Tibetan antelope, one of the most majestic and rare antelopes to exist in the wild, is being brutally slaughtered and stripped of its hide so that the soft felt can be made into luxurious scarves, or shahtoosh, that sell for as much as $20,000 on the black market. Demand that this cruelty come to an end.

The Tibetan antelope that has lost over 90 percent of its population in the 1990s alone. Only about 75,000 remain in their natural habitat. The rest have been murdered and turned into expensive accessories. Over 800 scarves made of their hide were seized in Western Europe between 2015 and 2018 alone. Four antelopes must die to make one scarf.

The trade of shahtoosh is illegal, yet such scarves still find their way out of Tibet, out of India, and into Western nations. The problem must end where it begins. Demand that the government of Tibet protect this majestic animal and hold those responsible for harming it to the strictest of punishments.

I detest the sort of wealthy people who buy these scarves. They have no conscience at all.
