Compassionate visitors to Tokyo Disneyland no longer have to worry about being confronted with items made of fur. That’s because after learning from PETA and concerned citizens throughout the country about the torment and painful killing of animals used for their skins, the theme park has banned the sale of all fur items. According to complaints received by PETA, Disneyland vendors were selling items such as bags and hats made with fox and rabbit fur.
Animals trapped for their fur endure excruciating pain before they are killed by trappers, who stomp on the animals’ chests or break their necks. On fur farms, animals spend their entire lives in tiny, filthy cages before workers kill them by breaking their necks or using poison or anal electrocution. In China—which is the world’s largest fur exporter—animals who are killed for their fur are sometimes skinned alive.
How You Can Help
The decision to stop selling fur at Tokyo Disneyland is a great example of the power of each of us. By using our voices, we can make a difference. If you see fur being sold, don’t be afraid to voice your concerns to management or staff. Never be silent.
By ending the demand for fur, we can stop the production. Take the pledge never to wear fur, and share it with your family and friends.
