Because fur belongs on animals — not the catwalk.
Almost all fur in Australia is imported from Europe, the US and Asia, where animals killed for their fur are caught from the wild in painful traps, or are locked in tiny cages on fur factory farms. To preserve the 'valuable pelts', animals commonly meet their deaths by anal or vaginal electrocution, drowning, being gassed, poisoned, skinned alive or beaten to death. In Asia, millions of dogs and cats are killed for their fur, and while it is illegal to import dog and cat fur to Australia, some of these furs are mislabeled as rabbit, fox or mink before being imported to countries like Australia and the US.
