Local PETA supporters will protest the fur industry this Saturday in downtown Winnipeg.
“We are protesting the abuse of all animals that are tortured for their fur,” said organizer Alana Mowbray. “These animals are kept in small cages and forced to live their lives in dirty warehouses, and are often violently skinned alive.”
“You can find it (fur) on jackets, gloves, fur trim, and other fashion garments. Often faux fur is mislabelled and what you are purchasing is in fact real fur.”
The protest will be held from 12:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. outside of The Bay, 450 Portage Avenue.
Organizers have created a Facebook page for the event.
