Huge Victory! Canada Goose To Go 100% Fur-Free By The End Of 2022

After more than a decade of global controversy and protests by animal advocates, Canada Goose announced today that it will end the use of all fur products. They will stop purchasing fur by the end of 2021 and cease to manufacture fur no later than the end of 2022.

“This is a momentous step in the demise of cruel fur fashion. For years, Canada Goose’s trademark parka jackets with coyote fur trim have been synonymous with fur cruelty, but their announcement today is another major blow to the global fur trade, a dying industry on its knees from the punches of so many top designers and retailers walking away from the PR-nightmare of fur,” Humane Society International UK’s Executive Director Claire Bass said in a statement sent to WAN. “Canada Goose’s fur-free policy will spare untold thousands of coyotes from being maimed and killed in cruel metal leg-hold traps, and should strengthen the UK Government’s resolve to recognize that banning the import and sale of fur is the right thing to do, both by the public and future-focussed fashion brands.”

Tragically, wild animals such as coyotes and wolves who are trapped for their fur, can languish in agony in cruel leg-hold traps for hours or even days before dying from dehydration, starvation, attacks by predators or being killed when the trapper returns.

Animals on fur farms also experience the physical and psychological torment of being confined in small, barren cages for their entire lives, the killing methods typically used on fur farms are equally distressing. Mink are killed by gassing, and fox and raccoon dogs are killed by electrocution.

Humane Society International has long been fighting the global fur trade, and the #FurFreeBritain campaign for a UK fur sales ban. Although fur farming was outlawed in the UK on moral grounds in 2000, Britain still imports and sells fur from countries such as: Canada, China, Finland, and Italy from a range of species such as: fox, rabbit, mink, coyote, raccoon dog, and chinchilla.

May Canada Goose’s next step be to ban the use of down in all of its products!
