As first reported by NBC, in PETA’s latest eyewitness investigations, workers killed, beat, stomped on, kicked, mutilated, and threw sheep around as they sheared them in Australia, one of the world’s top wool producers, and the U.S.
As you can see in the groundbreaking video footage, sheep shearers violently punched these gentle animals in the face, beat them, jabbed them in the head with sharp metal clippers and a hammer, and stomped and stood on their heads and necks. One shearer killed a sheep by repeatedly twisting and bending a sheep’s neck, breaking it. Workers threw scared sheep around and slammed their heads and bodies against hard wooden floors.
These animals need your help.
The best thing that you can do for sheep is refuse to buy wool! It’s easy to check the label when you’re shopping. If it says “wool,” leave it on the shelf.
Please also ask leading sellers of wool J.Crew and Ralph Lauren to drop wool immediately in favor of animal-friendly materials that are free of cruelty.
Together, we can make a difference for these suffering animals. All you have to do is take action today.
