PETA Demands Kate Upton plus Canada Goose to Stop Lying! For On the PETA Facebook and Instagram page was this post! This #InternationalPolarBearDay, PETA and a “coyote” (good one!). For they are confronting Polar Bears International for its partnership with #CanadaGoose.
As PETA added: Cruelty can be found in every stitch of Canada Goose’s jackets. As well as their other clothing items. Coyotes are used for the company’s fur trim. It can also suffer in painful steel traps for days. All before they’re shot or bludgeoned to death.
In addition, mothers get so desperate to get back to their pups. I mean they have attempted to chew off their own limbs to escape. Animals who don’t also succumb to the elements, blood loss, infection, or predators. For they are often shot or bludgeoned to death when the trapper returns.
Ducks and geese suffer for down as well—no matter their origin. Birds used for their down are inevitably sent to the slaughterhouse, where standard practice is to hang them upside down, stun them, and then slit their throats—often while they’re still conscious.
There’s nothing warm or cozy about the cruelty that Canada Goose stitches into its jackets. Urge the company to stop selling fur and goose down now!
In conclusion, as if it weren’t bad enough for outerwear company Canada Goose. All because they use fur trim from coyotes caught in steel traps and shot or bludgeoned to death. Yet a PETA eyewitness exposé of a farm that has supplied Canada Goose with down, James Valley Colony Farms (JVC),reveals that workers rounded up panicked geese, grabbing and carrying them by the neck, and crammed them into densely packed cages for transport to slaughter. Some geese were left in the feces-covered crates for up to 24 hours without food or water, including during a trip down the highway to the slaughterhouse lasting over five hours.
Finally and then Canada Goose insisted that it was no longer using this farm to source its feathers at the time of PETA’s investigation. Yet the company showcased JVC’s claims of “tender loving care” of geese in a video on its own “down traceability” webpage as well as on YouTube and didn’t remove footage of JVC from its promotional materials until 2019—long after the investigation. But regardless of which feathers came from where, there’s absolutely no such thing as ethical down, despite Canada Goose’s claims—birds used by the industry are all slaughtered in violent ways. The company tells customers that it’s “deeply committed” to the “ethical sourcing of all animal materials”—but this is misleading at best, because alldown comes from sensitive birds who didn’t want to be killed.
