INFORMATION

See Bear-Hunting video.

PETA is calling on Quentin Davies MP, Minister for Defence Equipment & Support, to stop using bear pelts to make headpieces for the five guard’s regiments and to have the hats fashioned from luxurious faux fur instead.

Bears killed for their hides are often shot during hunts, as many as one bear in seven is not killed immediately after being shot, and some escape wounded and die later from blood loss or starvation. In some Canadian provinces, there are no restrictions on the shooting of mothers who have nursing cubs, which leads to the slaughter of entire families during hunts when cubs are orphaned and left to die.

There is no excuse for the murder of bears for their skins. The MoD are dragging their heels and taking too long to do the right thing – ditch real bearskins and go faux. Watch the video that shows the true colours of the bear-skin industry then use our form below to send an e-mail to Quentin Davies, MP, the new minister in charge of procurement for the MoD.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
