Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

220px-Harvey_Nichols_2Harvey Nichols,an English luxury department store chain, was founded in 1931.

 It sells fashion items for women and men, fashion accessories, beauty products, wine and food.

After 10 years of being fur free, in September 2013, Harvey Nichols resumed the sale of fur in its United Kingdom stores.

To me, this is going backwards in time and morality. 

Despite the outcry about the cruel fur industry, the company insisted its furs are “ethically sourced” from reputable suppliers.

A Canadian company who supply coyote furs to Harvey Nichols has also publicly disclosed a statement admitting capturing the animals from the wild in leg-hold traps.

The Daily Mail, January 2014, published an article  pointing out that the coyotes can be “in pain for days”.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA) elaborated:

“Mother animals will chew off their limbs in order to get back to their young. The trapped animal might be there for days before the trapper comes and finds them, they are frightened and starving and in pain during that time. And then they’re bludgeoned or strangled to death or shot.”
