Ban the Dog & Cat Fur Trade
Have you ever wondered just where the fur harvested for those cute little stuffed animals that are so real and lifelike comes from?
To quote an email alert I have received from HSI Canada: “Imagine your best friend being cut open while still conscious, her skin ripped off her back as she cries in pain. Imagine her being left to die slowly, terrified and in agony.”
“Tragically, this awful scenario is a grim reality for too many of the millions of cats and dogs in Asia who are slaughtered for their fur.” (HSI Canada)
While the United States and European Union has already banned these products, Canada turns a blind eye, allowing import of these horrific reminders of gross animal cruelty into our country.
Despite public outrage Canada refuses to close Canadian doors, why, because, again to quote HSI Canada “… officials told Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz not to consider a cat and dog fur ban, saying it could undermine Canada’s “case” against nations that have prohibited seal product trade.”
It is time that the Canadian Government actually listened to the Electorate.
Please help put an end to the incredible suffering these animals endure. Please support HSI Canada in their quest to end the suffering. Please contact Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and voice your own disgust with Federal Government Policy.
