Company Sells Hair Ties Made From Skinned Rabbits

PETA told international retailer SSENSE that animals used for fur are often confined to tiny, filthy, uncomfortable cages for their entire lives and are beaten, drowned, electrocuted, gassed to death, or skinned alive … but it's still selling things like rabbit-fur hair ties and coyote fur-trimmed parkas.

It's common for workers on fur farms to hang animals upside down and peel their skin and fur down over their heads, sometimes while they're still conscious. It's been documented that some animals live as long as 10 minutes after this is done to them.

Animals trapped in the wild frequently endure agonizing deaths, too—blood loss, dehydration, frostbite, and attacks by predators are all common. Those who survive initially are often strangled, stomped, shot, or bludgeoned to death.

SSENSE knows there isn't a single federal law to protect animals used for fur from these extremely violent killing methods, yet it continues to use fur from rabbits, foxes, and coyotes.

Using animals for fur always hurts them—there's no way around it.

Tell SSENSE to stop selling fur.
