"Farm animals feel pleasure and sadness, excitement and resentment, depression, fear, and pain. They are far more aware and intelligent than we ever imagined…they are individuals in their own right.” — Jane Goodall

The fur industry wouldn't be caught dead showing the cruelty behind its hottest collections of fur-bearing fashions; from fur factory farming to trapping, to seal slaughter.

BUTTERBALL: cruelty and business do not mix

A three-week investigation at a Butterball turkey farm in North Carolina by an animal welfare activist with a hidden camera documented workers beating birds with metal bars, stomping and kicking them, and throwing them violently into metal cages by their necks.

Mercy for Animals, the non-profit organization responsible for the investigation, turned the footage over to prosecutors in December 2011, and the police raided the facility.  Five workers were charged with criminal animal cruelty, and a top-level Department of Agriculture official was convicted for obstruction of justice in February 2012.

cheers to the brands that say NO to furLONDON—Michael Kors Holdings Limited (NYSE: KORS)—a global fashion luxury group —will end its use of fur, with production phased out by the end of 2018. The policy will apply companywide, including for Michael Kors’ Jimmy Choo brand.

Humane Society International’s President Kitty Block said: “Killing animals for fur is cruel and outdated, and so it’s hugely exciting to see forward-looking fashion designers such as Michael Kors take fur out of their collections. It’s clear that consumer demand for ethical fashion includes a strong desire for an end to fur, and so we are delighted to welcome Michael Kors as a fur-free leader in luxury fashion alongside the likes of Gucci, Armani, Yoox Net-a-Porter, Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss.”

With this announcement, Michael Kors and Jimmy Choo have joined the international Fur Free Retailer Program.
