Congrats Sports Illustrated! You’ve managed to objectify both women and animals in one photo! Question, isn’t the SI swimsuit issue supposed to be a magazine full of supermodels wearing itty bitty bikinis? Why on earth would SI feature real fur on the cover of their skimpy bathing suit issue? 👎
What a baneful choice in featuring such a morally inferior company like Canada Goose. Their abominable display of animal cruelty is no secret. Canada Goose Inc. is known worldwide for their cruel, unnecessary, and abundant display of animal cruelty. 💔
Each year in Canada, over 100,000 coyotes are trapped and killed in cruel leg-hold, Conibear and snare traps. In agony and confusion, animals often break teeth and bones trying to escape. Canada Goose chooses to trap and kill coyotes, but thousands upon thousands of non-target animals (yes, even companion animals) are victims of these heinous traps.
The animals have three options:
1) Try to chew off their trapped body part.
2) Bleed, freeze, or starve to death
3) Or wait in agony to be “dispatched” by the trapper.
Again, this is all for a piece of decorative fur trim for an overpriced coat.
Please do not buy this issue and do not support Canada Goose. If you must “ooh and ahh” over supermodel bodies, choose a different publication. The Internet is full of FREE bathroom material, don’t buy this rubbish.
By the way SI, you can count on a strongly worded letter to the editor from yours truly…
Yo INTERMIX! Get the FOX outta here!

The International Fur Trade Federation claims that “welfare is at the heart of everything the fur trade does.” Interesting how anyone remotely interested in animal welfare can justify fur trapping…
Trapped animals often twist or chew off their own limbs to escape. Traps are not selective, and ANY animal can get caught.
The animals pictured were all victims of fur trapping. Remarkably, the two cats survived, but they were lucky. Valiant nearly lost his left foot. The fact that JJ survived is a miracle. She was caught in a body crushing Conibear trap.
Born Free USA covered their veterinary bills out of their Trapping Victims Fund. Unfortunately, this happens all to often, and most do not survive. This unnecessary suffering will continue as long as the fur trade thrives.
Say NO to fur!
If every person shares this petition with just ONE person, we can more than DOUBLE the signatures we already have.
Petitions are important because EVERY signature sends an email to Kitson’s top buyers and executives. Petitions are the easiest and most widespread form of activism. All it takes is one click, and you’ve already made a difference.
We’re throwing a holiday themed protest at Kitson on December 22nd! Faux ho ho ho! Come! It’ll be fun! We’re bringing soy nog and fauxlicious santa hats!
RSVP HERE: KITSON Fur Protest - Holiday Edition http://on.fb.me/Sov9ZG
We target individual stores for the most impact. Without that kind of specificity, we wouldn’t have gotten Planet Blue, Urban Outfitters, LF Stores, True Religion, Dolls Kill, and Brandy Melville to all go fur free!
We are pro faux. Both Planet Blue and Dolls Kill came out with a line of their own faux fur after going fur free. If there’s a market for leather and fur, let’s make it fake.
We don’t want these stores to go out of business, we want them to be in the business of compassionate fashion.
We’re a small team, but our victories would not have been possible without your help. If you’re in the LA area, join us next Saturday December 1st from 1-4pm protesting Kitson on Robertson Blvd.
Hope to see you there!
Holy Shiitake Mushrooms! Fur Free Friday had an amazing turnout in Beverly Hills.
P.S. We have two upcoming protests starting next week:
