PETA is pleased to report that Patagonia has halted all wool purchases

Dear Manfred,

PETA is pleased to report that Patagonia has halted all wool purchases following the release of that highly disturbing video evidence of violent cruelty to animals on farms that are part of the Ovis 21 network in Argentina—the clothing company's wool supplier. Patagonia's CEO has announced that the company won't buy wool again until it's assured of "the humane treatment of animals." PETA praises the new move, as all steps are good steps, but cautions that as Patagonia delves deeper into the wool supply chain, it will find that cruelty will always be a part of wool production—as we have found in Australia, the U.S., and now Argentina. If the company is honest, we doubt it could return to buying real wool again.

No matter where wool comes from, lambs and sheep will suffer when their tails are cut off and they're painfully castrated. And all sheep used for their wool are eventually slaughtered when their usefulness wears out—including those who are punched, thrown, and cut up during shearing, something that PETA has found occurs at shearing sheds around the world.

Please take a moment to thank Patagonia for halting its wool purchases and urge the company to drop wool for good.

Thanks for speaking up for sheep!

Sincerely,
