Eighty-one percent of Canadians oppose killing animals for their fur, according to a study conducted by Research Co.
In a news release yesterday, Research Co. published the results from a series of studies to indicate differences between Canadian and American views on issues related to animals.
Across several categories, American respondents were more often in favour of animal use:
|Hunting Animals for Meat||67%||65%|
|Keeping Animals in Zoos/Aquariums||64%||39%|
|Use of Animals in Rodeos||46%||32%|
|Killing Animals for Their Fur||25%||19%|
Each of these categories can be broken down further by region and gender. Below is the Support Killing Animals for Their Fur item with regionalized responses.
There is clear, nation-wide belief that killing animals for their fur is wrong: whether in inherently inhumane traps or wire-bottomed cages on industrialized fur farms, Canadians know we can do better. It’s time to #MakeFurHistory.
Results are based on online studies conducted from September 4 to September 6, 2020, among representative samples of 1,000 adults in Canada and 1,200 adults in the United States. The data has been statistically weighted according to Canadian and U.S. census figures for age, gender and region in each country. The margin of error—which measures sample variability—is +/- 3.1 percentage points for Canada and +/- 2.8 percentage points for the United States.
