Group In Oregon Wants Schumacher Fur Store To Label Its Furs: If They Have Nothing To Hide, Then Why Not Label Them To Where Fur Actually Comes From?

In keeping with an informed consumer. If they have nothing to hide, then why not label them?

This is why I love Oregon.

A quick quote from article below:

"We want them to put a label on the fur that tells exactly how the animals lived and died," said Matt Rossell with In Defense of Animals. "If the furs were labeled and consumers could make a choice with all of the information, I think the protest would end."

PORTLAND, Ore. - A possible solution to an ongoing fur fight in downtown Portland has been shot down.

On Wednesday, the group In Defense of Animals suggested new labels could stop the protests outside the Schumacher Furs storefront.

Anti-fur protesters have been organizing a picket line outside the shop nearly every Saturday.

A spokesman for the group was at a City Council meeting Wednesday morning saying the protesters want customers to know more about Schumacher's clothing.

"We want them to put a label on the fur that tells exactly how the animals lived and died," said Matt Rossell with In Defense of Animals. "If the furs were labeled and consumers could make a choice with all of the information, I think the protest would end."

The owner of Schumacher Furs says no animal laws are being broken and that adding the labels would be misleading to customers.
