Top 5 Animals Killed for Clothing

Humans unthinkingly use so many animal products for nothing but vanity.Animal products have become a part of one’s wardrobe without so much as a thought for what that animal endures in order to feed human vanity. Animals are slaughtered for their pelt (fur or wool that covers an animal’s skin) Humans want leather, silk, wool, feathers and what not.

Here we look at the 5 poor animals that are most commonly killed for clothing:


Seals and often baby seals are often clubbed to death in order that their pelt may be used for human clothing. Hundreds of thousands are killed for their fur every year.



Rabbits are reared in captivity and sheared using very cruel methods to get angora wool. Since male rabbits have lower wool yields than female rabbits, they are frequently slaughtered at birth on farms where they are reared for their wool.



Fox pelt is another fashion coveted accessory – stoles, scarves and so on – that makes foxes one among the animals most frequently killed for their fur.



Year old sheeps are sheared and then slaughtered. This gives rise to the term shearling – a sheep that has been shorn only once (the first time) and then slaughtered.



In some places lambs are killed in their mother’s womb, even before being born. This is supposed to obtain very soft, smooth fur known as karakul.


Of-course !! Cruelty is not Sexy . Please do not purchase leather products.

Fashion at the cost of others is not fashion. It is cruelty.

Stop Animal Cruelty ! Save Animals !!
