Yesterday, BNN Editor Chandra Beal wrote about companies and products that have been certified as cruelty-free through the Leaping Bunny program.
The item is described as, “Beautiful snow-white rabbit skin for all sorts of craft & home decor projects.” There is one “14”x10” rabbit skin per pack.
I am horrified that a store that probably makes a tidy profit by selling Easter merchandise (their Web site lists 186 rabbit-themed items) would literally sell the Easter bunny down the river this way.
JoAnn Fabrics encourages manufacturers to raise rabbits for their fur by offering a marketplace for this awful product.
Shame on you, JoAnn Fabrics!
Please send a polite communication (email, letter, or phone call) to JoAnn Fabrics and let them know that it’s not OK to sell rabbit skins – or the skins of any animal that is a beloved family companion/pet.
