Each year, approximately 2 million dogs and cats are cruelly slaughtered for their meat and fur. These animals are killed throughout Asia and their skins are used to make trinkets, toys and fur trim. It is legal to import and sell dog and cat fur in Canada.
Each year in Canada, over three million fur-bearing animals are killed solely for the fashion fur trade. Over 700,000 of these animals are caught and killed in cruel leg-hold, Conibear and snare traps. This is cruelty we can stop.
Due to the rapid loss of habitat wild animals are often drawn into urban and semi-urban environments in search of food and shelter. Conflicts between wild animals and humans (and pets) usually arise when wild animals become habituated to humans.
Every year, 6,000 to 9,000 muskrats are killed to adorn the regulation uniform hats which are a part of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s (RCMP) winter uniform. RCMP are also now using coyote fur on their parkas (all with your tax dollars).
For years, proponents of the fur trade have been flogging the “Fur is Green” campaign to dupe environmentally-concious consumers into purchasing fur. Don't believe the lies. Fur hurts not only animals, but our environment too.
