Outerwear brand Canada Goose uses fur trim from coyotes caught in steel traps and shot or bludgeoned to death, and it fills its jackets with down from abused birds.
A PETA US exposé of a Canada Goose down supplier reveals that workers rounded up panicked geese, grabbing and carrying them by the neck – as they struggled with their entire weight hanging from the neck – and crammed them into densely packed cages for transport to slaughter.
After a trip from the farm to the abattoir lasting over five hours, the geese watched, terrified, as others right in front of them were shackled and killed – until it was their turn.
Coyotes, who are trapped in the wild for their fur, can suffer for days while facing blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. Mothers desperate to get back to their starving pups have even been known to chew through their own limbs in an attempt to escape.
Animals who haven't already died are often strangled, stamped on, or bludgeoned to death when the trapper returns.
