Despite knowing about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat,
hat, and bag, Donna Karan has made the cruel decision to use the skins of dead
rabbits in her clothing lines.
Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy
wire cages, and fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods
available. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are
bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, and often skinned alive for their fur.
One of the best ways that you can help animals who are beaten and tortured
for their fur is to tell Donna Karan executives that you’ll boycott the
designer’s collections until she stops using fur. Many top designers—including
Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Liz
Claiborne—have chosen to create wonderful work without using animal fur.
