My simple Search on eBay found over 75,600 NEW FUR items in ONE day. Yes, that is correct: Over 75 THOUSAND items offered in new furs, for sale on eBay pages, ALL made of new real GENUINE FUR, not faux.
The majority of this inventory comes from CHINA and KOREA. (But let's not forget Canada's contributions of seal and fox)
Both KOREA and CHINA have been continually petitioned to stop their grossly inhumane methods of fur harvesting: Breeding critters for their fur alone, stealing cats and dogs from streets, and shelters, and even owners' yards!
Then selling their fur labeled as fox or rabbit!
*Crowding caught companion animals and others: terrified and starving, together into cages full to the brim,
*Anal electrcution (sorry) is common practice to keep the fur nice.
*And then skinning while many are still alive and conscious, ad nauseum.
EVERY single day MILLIONS of animals in Asia are enduring prolonged suffering and excrutiating deaths all because of the demand for inexpensive fur, which eBay PROVIDES with an easy Search!
I have deleted my Watch List and Search List in protest, and hope you will do the same. It's TIME to join the voices that have been pleading w/ eBay to STOP ALLOWING and ENCOURAGING Sellers that trade in this most hideous side of the clothing market (on the backs of these animals who have NO voice but ours), to advertise on their pages.
Remember, eBay makes a profit from every sale.
If eBay stops this, a HUGE revenue of the "new fur" trade would be halted.
PLEASE! Let's get this moving NOW!
To be drafted...near petition end date.
