You've probably seen, heard of, or really wanted a Canada Goose coat. They're bloody everywhere right now and look like the snuggiliest, most cosy coats around. But, despite Canada Goose coats being majorly on trend - here's why we're TOTALLY against ever owning one.
Lindsay Rajt, Director of Campaigns for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said: 'Canada Goose uses exclusively Coyote fur on the trim of their coats and those animals are trapped in a way that is just inherently cruel.'
For reference: LOOK AT THIS CUTE BABY COYOTE:
While Canada Goose have responded to the claims, saying they 'purchase coyote furs from certified Canadian trappers' PETA points out that leg hold traps are still very much legal in Canada and these are by NO means okay.
'Leg hold traps are still legal in Canada. Mother animals will chew off their limbs in order to get back to their young. The trapped animal might be there for days before the trapper comes and finds them, they are frightened and starving and in pain during that time. And then they're bludgeoned or strangled to death or shot.'
There's also been loads of viral videos shared on social media of coyotes being captured, shot and killed for Canada Goose coats - and SEEEEERIOUS WARNING: this next vid is really really sad but YOU DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH:
