J.K. Rowling readily shows her love and appreciation for magical creatures in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series’, but her recent clothing choices have not reflected this love for animals in the muggle world. J.K. Rowling was recently photographed wearing a fur trimmed, down-filled Canada Goose parka.
These luxury coats are made with needless cruelty towards animals.
The fur trim is obtained by trappers who set steel-jaw leghold traps which catch coyotes or other “non-target’ animals by cutting through their bone and holding them in place. After up to 72 hours, if the animal hasn’t already died from blood loss, infection, or attacks by other animals, the coyotes are either shot or bludgeoned to death to become the fur trim on J.K. Rowling's coat.
We are joining PETA in asking J.K. Rowling to donate her Canada Goose garment so that it can be used in PETA’s campaign to urge the public to steer clear of the brand until it makes the switch to innovative, cruelty-free materials.
