Seriously. Still wearing animal fur in the 21st century!!
Canada just got a new Prime Minister. After a decade of conservative (Canada’s republican) rule, the people of Canada recently elected a Liberal (Canada’s version of democratic party) government with a young and optimistic Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. Some have criticized Trudeau’s victory for his looks and a name similar to other celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber. While many try to remain neutral and objective, there is only one problem… he wears fur. His whole family supports the killing of animals to provide fur coats.
Earlier this year, Fur Free South Africa found rabbit fur pet toys being sold as synthetic toys.
Cat and dog fur is often used for novelty items, as well.
To raise awareness about this despicable industry, FFSA started a What The Fur campaign on social media.
People send in photos of their fur children ~ cats, dogs, rabbits and so on ~ which FFSA then captions. Here are some of the pics:

Please sign this letter to fashion brand The Kooples, which still sells items containing both Angora wool and equally unethical genuine fur filling.
Warning: there are shocking photos of abused rabbits.
This week, in the Austria’s Next Top Model (2015) show on television, one of the
candidates made an impressive anti-fur statement.
This Austrian reality show is a chance for a number of people to compete for the title of Austria’s Next Top Model.
Bianca, one of the candidates, dropped her fox fur coat in a fashion show of the Most Famous Austrian fur designer in Vienna, and walked almost in the nude as a protest.
