Popular Canadian-based outdoor clothing company is targeted for using coyote fur Vancouver, BC — On the eve of

February 9, 2012, supporters from Vancouver-based, Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals and

Victoria-based Friends of Animals, staged a protest on outdoor clothing company, Canada Goose Inc.’s Facebook page.

By changing their profile pictures to block letters, protesters spelled out

the slogan, “fur kills” and posted anti-fur comments for an audience of

48,000+ followers. The message was in reaction to the company’s use of

real fur trim on the hoods of their popular parkas.

In addition to the Facebook protest, over ten thousand postcards

depicting a coyote trapped in a leg-hold trap with a message about

Canada Goose Inc.’s coats have been distributed across Canada.

Lesley Fox, Executive Director for The Association for the Protection of

Fur-Bearing Animals says, “Despite what people think, leg-hold traps are

still legal in every province across Canada. Coyotes will break teeth and

bones trying to escape from cruel traps. Fur is cruelty we can stop.”

Friday, February 10th, 2011 marks the 22nd Annual National Anti-Fur Day. The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals

and Friends of Animals are part of a growing network of animal advocates who are protesting the Canadian fur industry

in more than twenty-two cities.
