Hold Shop Owner Accountable for Reported Endangered Animal Fur Sales

Target: Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of California

Goal: Hold clothing store accountable for reportedly selling endangered animal pelts.

The owner of San Francisco clothing store Decades insists she did nothing wrong even after being charged with and pleading no contest to selling items made from endangered animal pelts. Cicely Hansen, a self-proclaimed “fashion historian,” claims she was unaware of a law prohibiting such sales, and claims to be a true animal rights activist.

The sale of animal pelts is just as harmful as the act of poaching itself. Hansen may not have killed these animals with her own hands, but she is still enabling the exploitation of endangered creatures by reportedly selling their skins for profit. Animal rights activist or not, her alleged actions are still unethical and illegal. To even willfully own clothing made of animal pelts is harmful in this day and age, sending the message that it is acceptable to kill innocent creatures for the sake of fashion.

Decades must be held accountable for their reported possession and sales of endangered animal pelts. Sign this petition to ensure that the shop and its owner face the appropriate penalties for their reported actions.


Dear Attorney General Becerra,

Clothing store owner Cicely Hansen has reportedly pleaded no contest to the sale of endangered animal pelts, yet still continues to attempt to justify her actions. Hansen reportedly claimed she was unaware of a law prohibiting such sales, and that as a “fashion historian” she was merely selling items she had had in her possession for years.

Hansen claims to be an animal rights activist, yet having the pelts of jaguar, ocelot, and snow leopard in her shop is just as unethical and exploitative as poaching itself. A person cannot claim ignorance or justify their actions when they have essentially enabled the continued persecution of endangered wildlife.

There is no justification for enabling the harming of wildlife, regardless of ignorance regarding the laws. Hansen and her shop must be held accountable and made to fully accept and concede to their reported wrongdoings.

  1. Oh that bitch knew EXACTLY what she was doing. Make no mistake, she is NOT an animal activist! She is ass backwards. People who love and care about all animals are animal activists! Not some cold and conniving bitch who sells animal skins! And by the way bitch! It doesn’t matter if the animal is endangered or not! Animal skin is for and belongs to the animal ONLY! not the stupid human!!
