Petition: Wool Is For Sheep Only

Growing up, winters were cold and we had to wear wool sweaters. They were scratchy and itchy, and we dreaded wearing them. But they did keep us warm. Today, there are fabulous new materials out there that neither scratch nor itch but also keep the body warm and comfortable. It therefore has become so easy to live without wool – if you´re not a sheep, that is.

“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. ”
