CONCORD -- Protesters of the NH Animal Rights League picketed NH Fish
and Game in Concord, NH, on Friday, Nov. 23 in acknowledgment of Fur-Free
Friday, the day on which animal advocates all around the globe educate
holiday shoppers about the cruel fur industry.
The Fish and Game site
was chosen because of the agency's policy of allowing long trapping
seasons and the use of steel jaw leghold traps, Conibear traps, and
Fur trapping in NH is a recreational activity which
causes extreme pain and great suffering to animals. It supplies the
marketplace with an unnecessary product that serves merely as a status
symbol, since we have many fabrics today which supply warmth to the
wearer. Fur is no longer necessary.
