ACTION

Tell AFAR's EVP Publisher and VP Associated Publisher that you oppose recreational and commercial trapping because it devastates animal populations, and the cruelty inherent in trapping should not be glorified in AFAR's magazine or website.

Encourage them to watch Facts: What Everyone Needs to Know About Fur  and Fashion Victims - Narrated by Designer Tim Gunn

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

In the January-February 2013 issue of AFAR (a travel magazine), in an article featuring Quebec City, travel journalist Jennifer Kahn glorifies fur trapping, and marvels at pelts from beavers, wolves, ermines and lynx - animals killed by a local trapper.

As an educational and sophisticated travel magazine, AFAR should be aware of the incredible cruelty and torture of innocent animals involved in trapping for animal fur. Even companion animals like dogs and cats are frequently injured or killed in indiscriminate trapping devices.  


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
