Activists from the French animal rights group L214 recently went inside "Orylag" rabbit farms and documented that hundreds of rabbits were confined for months on end to row after row of cages with only filthy wire flooring to stand on. They never once got to breathe fresh air or see the light of day.
Never heard of an “Orylag rabbit” before? That’s probably because the breed was invented by humans. Why? To create animals with soft, dense fur—and then kill them for it. The rabbits know only darkness and pain inside their tiny, decrepit prisons, where they're left to suffer from sores, dehydration, malnutrition, and other injuries and ailments.
As a result, one in four rabbits observed in these facilities died before they were scheduled to be killed. Those who survived the abuse were sent to an abattoir, where they were hung by their paws before their throats were slit and the blood was drained from their struggling bodies as they moved down the conveyor line. Hundreds of rabbits are killed every single hour at the abattoir visited by L214 eyewitnesses.
The good news is that hundreds of progressive designers and retailers – including Gucci, Michael Kors, Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren, and Giorgio Armani are now 100 per cent fur-free and instead use luxurious faux fur for which no animals were harmed.
But Dolce and Gabbana refuses to stop profiting from this misery.
Tell the company to drop Orylag and sell only faux fur!
