=============================================================

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for any past efforts to close fur salons and/or end the sale of
fur merchandise at your stores. This shows sensitivity to not only your
customers, but also the unquestionable cruelty behind fur.

I appreciate that fur and fur-trimmed items present challenging questions
for upscale retailers in terms of customer satisfaction. But the minority
who still request real fur shouldn’t overshadow sound ethical policy.

The fact is, even a “little fur trim” is a lot of suffering and death.
Please expand your cruelty-free policy to include the termination of
fur-trimmed merchandise. Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole, Stella
McCartney, Todd Oldham and more popular designers offer sophisticated
collections without real fur.

There is virtually no regulatory oversight of fur farms. Caged animals are
typically stacked in open sheds where they pace in feces and urine. Some
perish from dehydration, starvation or self-mutilation. They resort to head
bobbing, infanticide, cannibalism, and other “coping tools.”

Pelts are often derived from genital electrocution. The killer delivers a
240-volt blast of electricity into an animal’s rectum. The conscious,
convulsing animal endures a heart attack for two or more minutes. Some die
by cervical dislocation (neck popping). Others are injected with lethal junk
chemicals. Animals are also asphyxiated with unfiltered carbon monoxide.

Creatures trapped in the wild suffer no less. Those caught in leghold traps
or snares may gnaw their teeth to the jawbone or chew off their feet to
escape. Others languish on trap lines for days before trappers return to
fatally club, stomp or drown them.

No matter how you market it, fur is synonymous with violence and death. I
respectfully ask you to offer cruelty-free couture at all your locations.

Thank you,
