GWAR may be the sickest band in metal
history, dead set on destroying the human race one city at a time, but there
are some atrocities even leader Oderus Urungus and the rest of the Scumdogs
find despicable. They've spoken out before against dogfighting by proposing an
ingenious new campaign for peta2: "Fight
Humans, Not Dogs!" This time, they're taking on an industry
responsible for skinning creatures alive. I'm talking, of course, about the fur industry, which is
responsible for the gruesome deaths of millions of animals every year. Check out the video below to hear what the
members of GWAR think about people who wear fur and to learn about where to
find truly one-of-a-kind cruelty-free fashion accessories.
Animals on fur
farms endure horrific suffering before being anally or vaginally
electrocuted, beaten to death, and even skinned alive for their coats. Foxes,
minks, rabbits, and raccoons—and even cats and dogs who are no different from
those you might share your home with—are confined to severely crowded cages and
left to suffer from starvation, untreated wounds, and severed limbs. Wearing
real fur when so many creative, cruelty-free
alternatives exist—as GWAR so graciously pointed out—is inexcusable. Join GWAR's fight against fur by signing
the pledge below!
Pledge to Be Fur-Free!
I won't support an industry that causes millions of rabbits, chinchillas, foxes, minks, raccoons, dogs, cats, and other animals a lifetime of suffering and a cruel, painful death. Animals should never be deprived of the right to wear their own skins, nor should humans be allowed to kill them for their fur.
