Hartz Mountain Company is world famous for animal products and
now they are selling toys made of real fur. These toys are labeled as being
made in China. The HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) in a recent
investigation of the treatment of dogs and cats in Asia found that dogs are
raised in filthy conditions and are skinned alive for their fur. Cats were
hung. The HSUS further stated that many of these pelts are intentionally mislabeled
and sold as another type of fur.
Perhaps this will touch your heart as it is not just any animal
but the animals that we share our daily lives with that have this atrocity
committed upon them however, no fur is a better alternative. Is it that important
to look so glamorous when that glamour had a life traded for it.
You can tell Hartz Mountain that they should NOT be using animal
fur in toys they manufacture.

You can write to your Congresspersons

displeasure at the fur trade in general and encouraging them to enact bills
to ban this.
