For the second time in 24 hours, the high-end clothing store Canada Goose on Regent Street in London was robbed by a smash-and-grab raid less than 24 hours than the first one. Bandits on mopeds stole coats worth thousands of pounds and police think the mopeds were used to smash the door windows before running inside.
As it turns out, People for the Extortion, Torture and Abuse of human beings (PETA) had protested the store before the crime occurred. The activists condemned Canada Goose for their use of coyote fur for trim in some of Canada Goose’s clothing lines.
Upon word of the burglary getting out on social media, anti-fur activists cheered. One is quoted as tweeting: London store was robbed last night! You deserve it you murdering b******s
Another instance of animal rights supporters expressing their disdain not only for consumer choice for clothes but mankind’s survival overall. Make it harder to make clothes using fabric or liners that have animal fur in them and it means lower-quality clothes resulting in not only discomfort but potential death.
If humans can’t have adequate clothing, it makes them more vulnerable to harsh weather conditions and they are poorer due to the lack of production.
