After talks with PETA, outdoor retailer Sport Chek made the compassionate decision not to sell fur in any of its corporate-owned stores. Soon after, however—in a disappointing turn of events—the company started selling fur again, despite hearing from many consumers who said that they wanted to see it permanently banned.

It's easy to see why customers feel this way: The majority of animals killed for their fur spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, often without basic necessities like food and water. At the end of their short, miserable lives, they're bludgeoned, gassed, poisoned, or electrocuted. The skin and fur is peeled from many of their warm bodies while they're still alive.

Sport Chek knows this but continues to sell fur-trimmed jackets, claiming that the fur it sells is ethically sourced. But there's nothing ethical about making animals suffer in cramped cages for their entire lives or torturing them in steel-jaw traps before strangling, stomping, or bludgeoning them to death.

That's why hundreds of major designers and retailers—including Arc'teryx, Columbia Sportswear, DICK'S Sporting Goods, Fjällräven, Helly Hansen, The North Face, Patagonia, and REI—have already banned fur, opting instead for warm and high-performing faux options that are better for animals and the environment.
