New Hampshire ARAs Protest Use of Fur

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 drowning snares.

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.
