New York – What does Canada Goose do to geese? That’s the question that Canadian Charmed and Descendants star Sarah Jeffery answers in a new PETA video short called “Draw My Life: Canada Goose Edition.”
In the video, the Vancouver-born actor voices the thoughts of a goose who’s born on a massive Canadian farm, raised in a filthy shed and a fenced-in pen with no protection from the extreme cold, and finally shipped off to a slaughterhouse. “Then I looked to where we were going, and I saw the blade,” she says. “This was our end. We’re going to be killed so Canada Goose can stuff our feathers into jackets for humans—even though there are countless better ways for them to keep warm that don’t require me to die.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—notes that Canada Goose’s coats are also trimmed with fur from coyotes, who can suffer in traps for days before they’re shot or bludgeoned to death. A wide variety of top brands—including HoodLamb, Save the Duck, NOIZE, For All Kind, and Wuxly Movement—sell warm and stylish coats that are 100 percent vegan.
Jeffery is part of a growing list of celebrities—including Tara Strong, Maggie Q, Ireland Basinger-Baldwin, and Justin Long—who’ve joined PETA in speaking out against Canada Goose.
PETA opposes speciesism, which is the human-supremacist view that other animals are commodities for humans to breed and kill at will. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
