HUGO BOSS phases out cruel wool

Designer giant Hugo Boss has announced that it will phase out the use of Australian wool originating from lambs who have undergone either the standard mulesing mutilation or the new “clip mulesing” mutilation. This is fantastic news, as yet another world-famous clothing company joins the international boycott of this cruelly produced wool, following in the footsteps of H&M, Matalan and more.

In 2004, the Australian wool industry sat up and started listening to what people were saying about Australia’s cruel treatment of sheep, and publicly pledged to phase out mulesing by 2010. Fast forward to now and the industry is promoting another cruel mulesing method where clips are attached to the folded skin and flesh of lambs, causing it to rot and fall off. Mmmm, sounds great – not. HUGO BOSS hasn’t been fooled either and will be phasing out all wool that could have been produced in either of these ways. In a statement the company says:

“HUGO BOSS disassociates itself from mulesing because it contravenes our corporate values … [and] has decided to phase out the use of wool from farms that perform mulesing – including clip mulesing. Should mulesing not have ended completely by 2010, HUGO BOSS will refuse to purchase wool material from farms that perform mulesing.”

Lana de Australia

"Mulesing" es un tipo de mutilación realizada por ganaderos australianos que consiste en cercenar pedazos de carne de los lomos de ovejas con unas tijeras de podar, sin administrarles analgésicos, como un método barato de prevenir infecciones por gusanos (a pesar de que existen métodos humanitarios y sofisticados de controlar las parasitosis). Cuando las ovejas dejan de ser productivas, se las envía a Oriente Medio en condiciones de viaje deplorables, hacinadas en barcos y a merced de condiciones climatológicas adversas. Muchas ovejas heridas o enfermas son tratadas como si fueran objetos, se las lanza por la borda o se las amontona mientras agonizan. Muchas de las que logran sobrevivir a este inhumano viaje, son degolladas mientras aún están conscientes.

Después de haber solicitado repetidamente al gobierno australiano el cese de estas atrocidades, desde la sede de PETA en Estados Unidos se lanzó una campaña de boicot internacional que ha tenido apoyo por parte de empresas tan importantes como Abercrombie & Fitch en Estados Unidos, George y New Look en Reino Unido, o por parte de personalidades como Martina Navratilova o Maneka Gandhi. "Los colores unidos de Benetton se están volviendo de color rojo sangre" declara el coordinador de la Campaña en Europa, Andrew Butler. "Si Benetton quiere limpiarse las manos de la sangre de millones de ovejas, debe oponerse a vender prendas elaboradas con lana australiana."

PETA y Animanaturalis-Libera! hacen un llamamiento a los consumidores para que boicoteen a Benetton hasta que cese de vender lana de Australia y están bombardeando a Benetton con anuncios y protestas en todo el mundo para que se sepa el apoyo de la compañía a la crueldad.

Live export: the journey from hell to a horrific death

Each year, millions of Australian sheep are crammed onto multi-level ships bound for ports in the Middle East and North Africa. When they arrive, the sheep will be callously dragged to shore as if they were sacks of coal, and then they will have their throats cut whilst they are still conscious.
Sheep are intelligent animals who feel pain and suffer, just as you or I do. The treatment of sheep aboard ships and upon arrival in the Middle East would horrify any compassionate person.


I hope that by sharing the story of what it must be like for one individual sheep, I can inspire you to make an important gift to support our vital work.
Picture a gentle sheep on a farm in Australia, the world's largest producer of Merino wool. One day, she is herded onto a crowded truck bound for a ship in a port city hundreds of miles away. For 24 hours or longer, she goes without any food or water. Her stomach aches and her mouth is dry as a bone, and she is constantly jolted and jarred. She is terrified, exhausted from sleep deprivation and stifled by the roasting heat inside the truck – with no idea what will befall her next.
Scared and desperately weak when she arrives at the port, she is herded into a feedlot. The "pellet" food wreaks havoc on her digestive system, causing stomach upset and diarrhoea, making her sicker and weakening her even more.
Eventually, she finds herself roughly herded onto a multi-tiered ship along with thousands of other sheep – strangers, not the family she has known. Because the sheep are packed together so tightly , she is barely able to move. And that is how she stays for up to three weeks at sea – if she survives the gruelling journey.
The enclosed ship deck becomes as hot as an oven. The amount of urine and faeces on the floor grows every day. In a few days, her lungs and eyes are burning from the ammonia fumes, which are so strong they eventually cause her to lose her vision.
Some sheep on board die from starvation, others from heatstroke. In a bid to contain the diseases that run rampant on the ship, the workers often throw the bodies of the dead and dying into a macerator – a large mincing device – which grinds them up and flushes their remains out to sea.
The next stop for her is the live market, where she is sold to an unskilled slaughterer. In sheer terror, she smells the blood of other sheep all around her and tries to hobble away, but a man throws her to the ground and slashes her throat as she struggles to stay alive.
In the final 30 seconds of her life, she looks up to see her death witnessed by other sheep who are still searching frantically for a way to escape as the man approaches them with his knife.
Your donation to PETA today will help us fight to end the suffering of the millions of individual animals involved in the live-export trade, and to help all other animals around the world. Only with your support can we change the lives of animals like these for good.
No animal should ever suffer the hellish conditions of live export or the terror of cruel slaughter methods. Please help us increase the pressure needed to save animals' lives today by supporting our work with as generous a contribution as you can afford. Thank you for caring.
Very truly yours,

Ingrid E Newkirk
Founder

Can you help us end abominable cruelty to animals?

I recently shared with you a story of a gentle sheep, who endured a terrifying journey across rough seas and storms in a hot, extremely crowded ship, barely avoiding being trampled to death by other sheep who were struggling to remain standing. Millions of individual Australian sheep are crammed onto multi-tiered ships bound for ports in the Middle East and North Africa, where they will be dragged to shore and then have their throats cut whilst they are still conscious.
That's why I'm asking if I may please count on you, a person who truly cares about animals, to help us do all we can to end such abominable cruelty.
Australian sheep farmers claim that it would be economically impossible to ban live export. However, RSPCA Australia recently conducted an economic analysis of the export of live sheep and published a report that flatly refutes this claim.


In light of this new evidence, and with concerns about live export at the forefront of the public's interest, the time to help us is now!
Please join other PETA members and compassionate people around the world and help us to crank up the pressure on Australian authorities. Taking the following actions today can help save animals' lives:
1> Send a message to Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd urging him to ban live export.
2> Make the most generous gift that you can afford in order to help us stop the suffering of millions of individual animals stuck in the live-export trade and to help all other animals around the world.
Your support will enable us to pressure Australian government officials and business leaders to stop exporting live sheep from Australia.
Your support will also allow us to educate people who are unaware of the cruelty of live export. With your help, we will be able to conduct media-grabbing demonstrations to let millions more people know what these sheep endure.
With your help, we could well win this battle too, which is why I urge you to make a lifesaving donation today. No animal should ever suffer the hellish conditions of the live-export trade or the terror of cruel slaughter methods. Please help us increase the pressure needed to save animals' lives today by supporting our work with as generous a contribution as you can afford.
Thank you for caring.
Very truly yours,

Ingrid E Newkirk
Founder
PS Your donation to support our work may be eligible for Gift Aid. Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give to PETA, we get an extra 28p from the Inland Revenue, so your donation will do even more to help animals – and it won't cost you a single penny more! All you need to do is make sure you check the Gift Aid box at the bottom of the form on our website when you make a donation.

What’s Wrong with Wool?
U.S. textile mills use nearly four times more imported than domestically produced wool. Much of it comes from Australia. With 118 million sheep, Australia is the world’s top wool producer and exporter.
Within weeks of birth, lambs’ ears are hole-punched, and the males are castrated without anesthetics. Extremely high rates of mortality are considered normal on Australian wool farms. 20 to 40 percent of lambs die before the age of 8 weeks, and 8 million mature sheep die every year from disease, exposure, or neglect.
Australian ranchers mainly raise Merino sheep, who are not native to Australia and therefore do not fair well in the harsh conditions. Merinos are bred to have extremely wrinkly skin (which allows for more wool). This unnatural overload of wool causes animals to die of heat exhaustion during summers. The wrinkles collect moisture, which attracts flies and results in maggot infestation known as “flystrike.” Maggots can literally eat sheep alive, so in order to reduce flystrike, ranchers perform a crude operation known as “mulesing.” Mulesing involves carving wide strips of skin from around the lambs’ tails to produce smooth scars that won’t harbor fly larvae. Tail docking (cutting off the sheeps’ tails) is often done in conjunction with mulesing to reduce feces and urine stains on the wool. Both mutilations are currently performed without the use of anesthesia; however, a new drug called Tri-Solfen is being introduced to reduce pain during mulesing. Unfortunately, the maker of the drug, Bayer, tests the product and many of its other products on animals. Ironically, because of the large bloody wounds caused by mulesing and tail docking, sheep often get flystrike before they heal.
According to Australian Law Reform chairperson M.D. Kirby, each year Australian sheep endure more than 50 million operations, such as mulesing and tooth-grinding, that would constitute animal cruelty if performed on dogs or cats.
Many people believe that shearing brings relief to animals that would otherwise be too hot. This is true if done in the summer, but in order to avoid losing any wool, ranchers shear sheep before they would naturally shed their winter coats, resulting in many sheep deaths from exposure to the cold.
When sheep are no longer profitable for wool production, they are slaughtered. They are exported in 14-tiered ships from Australia to the Middle East, a three- to six-week trip during which up to 18 percent of the animals die from the cramped and filthy conditions. Millions of sheep endure this transport, after which they are ritually slaughtered while fully conscious, per year.
Sheep exploited for wool in the U.S. also suffer from inhumane handling and transportation, and they too often face cruel ritual slaughter when they are no longer profitable to the wool industry. Sheep raised in the U.S. do not suffer the agony of live export to the Middle East, but they do suffer the same cruelties of wool production, including painful mutilations that are often done with little or no anesthesia.
Most U.S.-raised sheep and lambs are either raised on factory farms, where they spend their entire lives in filthy, manure-filled warehouses, or they are raised “on the range” without any shelter from extreme weather conditions. Thousands of lambs and sheep die every year from harsh conditions. Thousands more die from transportation, during which sheep are severely overcrowded onto trucks. The non-profit organization Farm Sanctuary has documented dozens of cases of “downed” sheep at auctions and stockyards. Sheep and lambs too weak to even stand are often abandoned on “dead piles” and left to die slowly from neglect. After a lifetime of producing wool, sheep are sent to slaughter. The U.S. slaughters 3 million sheep every year.
Alternatives to Wool…
There are many great alternatives to wool. Warm and fashionable sweaters made from cotton, fleece, acrylic, and ramie are readily available. For hiking or cold weather, try Patagonia Capaline or other similar synthetic long underwear, gloves, socks, blankets, etc. Knit polyester, acrylic, or fleece can easily replace wool in hats and beanies. Gore-Tex or other water-resistant synthetics work well in place of wool pants. Polyester, rayon, linen, microfiber, and other synthetics can replace wool suits, sport coats, and blazers.
“To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.”

Tell Your Friends to Be Sweet to Animals


Each year, millions of animals are tortured and eventually killed just so that people can wear fur, leather, and wool garments. The holidays are a time to get together and exchange gifts, but the dead skin of abused animals doesn't belong under the Christmas tree, now does it? This year, we want you to help convince your friends and family to be kind by not buying clothes made out of animals' skin.

Minks, rabbits, foxes, and other animals on fur farms are crammed into filthy wire cages where they are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them. Some are still conscious when they are bashed over the head and skinned alive. Cows are hacked into pieces and their skin is ripped off so that they can be made into leather coats and shoes. Sheep raised for wool in Australia have huge chunks of skin and flesh cut from their behinds, and many are shipped off to the Middle East, where they are slaughtered in the most horrific ways imaginable. With so many lovely and warm faux fur, leather, and wool clothing options available at almost every major retailer, there's simply no reason not to buy cruelty-free gifts this Christmas.

Here's how you can help us convince your friends and family members—and even a few strangers—to have a cruelty-free holiday:

1.Click here to download a sheet of "Be Sweet to Animals" tags.
2.Print out a few sheets, then cut each tag out separately.
3.Using a rubber band or some tape, attach the tags to candy canes (you can buy a few dozen for cheap at your local drugstore).
4.Give the candy canes to your friends, put one in your mom's stocking, hand them out at school, or go down to the nearest mall and give them to people as they walk in to do their holiday shopping. Be creative!




If you don't celebrate Christmas, be creative—put the tags on gifts you're giving this holiday season.

Once you've handed out your candy canes, rush back home and send a report to StreetTeam@peta2.com to let us know how it went. We'll give you 1,500 Street Team points for handing out the treats with tags on them, and we'll even give you a 750-point bonus if you include a picture with your report. Does it get any sweeter than that? (Get it, "sweeter" … because it's candy?) If you aren't on the Street Team, sign up now and start earning free peta2 merch for helping animals.

Happy holidays!

Put an End to Cruel Mulesing

As an animal activist, I usually consider myself pretty hip to the jive when it comes to animal issues. I’ve educated friends and family members about the horrors of foie gras, what happens to chicks in factory farms, and why they shouldn’t shop at Petco. I’ve participated in dozens of campaigns, am trying to raise my child in a humane education setting, and generally try to be aware of the issues surrounding all sentient beings.
It was astonishing to me, as you could guess, when I learned about the practice of mulesing. Why hadn’t I heard of this before? For one thing, it’s a weird word—if I’d skimmed it in my reading before, I likely would’ve chalked it up to cruelly making mules sing for their supper, as I knew a woman who once did with her several cats. (I think it was more creepy than cruel, myself; she reminded me of that old cat lady in Jeepers Creepers.)
But in reality, mulesing is a practice used in the wool industry, largely in Australia. It involves carving off chunks of skin—actual skin, not just the wool itself—off the backsides of lambs in order to prevent the disease flystrike. It’s typically not even done with anesthetic. Can you imagine the pain and trauma these lambs must go through? That would be like us cutting off a chunk of our children’s butts in order to prevent polio.
Some farmers opt to not cut off the skin, but to instead pinch the skin with clips until it dries up and falls off on its own. Perhaps the farmers believe they are being more humane in this fashion, but in reality the practice is a lengthy, painful one.
It’s true that flystrike can be a painful, debilitating, even deadly disease. Maggots can eat the sheep alive from the inside out if left untreated. But more humane alternatives to preventing the condition exist. Sheep can be bred in a manner to prevent the disease from occurring. Breeds with less wrinkly skin are particularly less affected by the disease. Experts say that within two years, Australian farmers could completely phase into this breed of sheep, nearly eliminating the need for preventative measures against the disease.
And here’s the thing: the wool industry of Australia had already promised to stop the practice. However, they’ve since broken the promise, and need to be reminded of how important it is to stop mulesing. Please write to Prime Minister Rudd today and ask for the practice to be stopped and replaced with more humane alternatives.
