Yet, despite huge public outrage this retailer sells items containing genuine fur. Their argument is that Takealot will not sell items derived from endangered animals.
Well, in my opinion this is putting greed over compassion. Even though thousands of minks, foxes and so on, are not endangered, they suffer immensely on fur farms.
Shame on Takealot for supporting this cruelty!

Every year Worldwide Fur Free Friday (WFFF) is held on Black Friday (USA). Sadly (WFFF) is being held again this year.

Anti fur petition @
Ever wondered about the fur costumes in movies?
Well, according to the Costume Designers Guild, “Given a choice, many costume designers prefer to use real fur!”
This is certainly the case with the popular TV series the Game of Thrones. Please sign this petition requesting the producers to go cruelty free.
For some time, anti-fur campaigners have requested the French brand label, The Kooples, to stop selling genuine fur.
The Kooples has now made the ethical choice and gone fur free.
The Kooples’ managing director, Nicolas Dreyfus, stated, “We are extremely concerned by animal suffering and … we’ve made the decision to stop the use of all fur in any future collections”.

The store owners on the Hartenstraat (which translates as ‘Heartstreet’) in Amsterdam have banned all fur items from their shops as from June 21st 2016.
Hartenstraat is the first fur-free shopping street in Europe.
Thank you to Dutch animal protection organisation Bont voor Dieren, for making this possible.
The brutal Canadian seal hunt starts in March after female seals have given birth to their young.
Baby Harp seals are born with a soft, white coat.
Legally, baby Harp seals in Canada cannot be hunted until they begin to shed their white coats of fur. However, this happens very soon, so the pups are barely weaned before they are bludgeoned to death.
That is, they have no legal protection at all!

This week has left me in its dust and the dust has not yet settled!
As part of Fur Free South Africa I have been helping to organise an event for International Day of the Seal (March 15).
This is a day of global action to raise awareness about the brutal and senseless commercial slaughtering of seals. During these commercial seal hunts, tens of thousands of seal pups are killed for their soft skins, which are then sold to international fur markets.
Male seals are killed for their genitals, which are sold in Asia to customers who erroneously believe that these are an aphrodisiac.
The two well-known seal hunts happen in Canada and Namibia.
Fur Free SA is having and online event to protest against these hunts. If you are interested read more @ http://on.fb.me/1Q3fqgB
Feeling sick by looking at the horrific images of seals bludgeoned to death, I was pleased to find this feel-good story on http://cuteoverload.com/
Argyro, is a Mediterranean monk seal. It seems Argyo decided to take life easy on the beach at Samos Island in Greece. Out of the blue Argyro arrived and settled into a beach chair. According to cuteoverload, this chair “has now been sealed off just for her use” .
Dedicated to the millions of seals who are cruelly massacred every year for human greed!
