Have you ever wondered what it would take for a company that supplies wool to retailers around the world to cut its ties with a farm that it had trusted for years?

PETA recently revealed cruelty to sheep at "sustainable" farms in the Ovis 21 network in Argentina and is now exposing another wool farm in Argentina. At this farm, workers cut off parts of lambs' ears, put tight rings around their scrotums and cut off their tails – all without any pain relief. As you can see in the video footage, shearers hit sheep with electric clippersslammed them to the hard floor and kicked and stood on them. Fast, rough shearing left many sheep cut and bleeding. The animals were not given any painkillers before workers pushed needles through their skin to sew up gaping wounds.

After receiving the footage, leading wool supply company Chargeurs assured PETA US that it had cut ties with the farm.

You Can Help Us Stop This Cruelty!

The cruelty documented on these farms is not unique, and similar abuses have been documented in all the three continents of the world. Please, when shopping for clothes, don't forget the gentle sheep who suffer in the wool industry all around the world, and choose items that don't contain wool. It's easy to check the label, and if it says "wool" – or any kind of wool – just leave it on the shelf.
