Stop Murdering Thousands of Chinchillas for Fashion

chinchilla-by-kjersti-holmang

Target: John W. Boyd, Jr., director of the Animal Welfare League

Goal: Stop the sale and trade of chinchilla fur to save these animals from a cruel death and possible extinction.

Clothing businesses are still selling garments made from the fur of slain chinchillas. It takes 150 of these creatures to make a single coat, meaning at least a few thousand of them have died every year for the sake of fashion. One particular species of wild chinchilla has already been hunted to extinction because of this, and two more are in severe danger. People breed chinchillas solely to kill and skin them for their fur.

This is unacceptable. Chinchillas are beautiful, delicate creatures who are already susceptible to disease and mental stress due to their small bodies, sensitive skin, and the conditions wild chinchillas are forced to contend with. The amount of them needed to be killed for a single coat is horrific, the lives of these animals are not worth a trendy fashion statement. Chinchillas are sweet, loving, playful animals who make far better pets and companions than clothing.

We must not let any more of these adorable creatures fall to the hands of hunters and fur traders. Sign this petition to demand the protection of these animals and for the sale of chinchilla fur to stop.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Boyd,

Thousands of chinchillas are dying for the sake of fashion. It takes 150 chinchillas killed and skinned to make a single coat, and people actively breed these animals for the sake of killing them to get their fur. PETA attempted to stop the sale of chinchilla fur long ago, but it still continues unabated. An entire species of wild chinchillas has already gone extinct, and two more are in danger of it.

We need to save these creatures from such a gruesome fate. Please demand the fur industry stop targeting these animals and that clothing businesses stop selling coats and other garments made from their fur. Chinchillas are loving, wonderful creatures who deserve better than this.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    “The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity.
    Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
