There are so many choices when purchasing winter wear other than wearing actual animals. In this day and age, I would wish more companies felt the same. By selling and promoting animal products, I feel all involved are completely turning a blind eye to animal welfare. Companies, and their passionate protestors, have recently been in the news about coyote furs obtained via cruel leg traps (and various other harmful traps), which cause pain, trauma, the chewing off their own legs, and death. Also in the news is the goose down that companies take painfully from live geese. This is cruel, plain and simple. Stealing from these innocent animals must end. Please be a compassionate consumer and choose animal alternatives.
