Tell Donna Karan Executives to Ditch Fur!

FROM  People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)


Speak out against the killing of animals for their skins. Write to Donna Karan executives now and urge them to dump fur for good. Despite past pledges not to use animal fur, Donna Karan is once again incorporating this cruel product into her "fashion" line.

Despite knowing about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, Donna Karan has made the cruel decision to use the skins of dead rabbits in her clothing lines.

Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, and fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, and often skinned alive for their fur.

One of the best ways that you can help animals who are beaten and tortured for their fur is to tell Donna Karan executives that you'll boycott the designer's collections until she stops using fur. Many top designers—including Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Liz Claiborne—have chosen to create wonderful work without using animal fur.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
