Where were you when you learned that the Canada Goose coat is actually made of coyotes? Was it here, right now? Well, don’t worry about making room for this new, likely unsettling information, because the company that makes the coats just announced it will no longer use real animal fur on its products starting in 2022. The goose will be coyotes no more.
In April 2020, Canada Goose announced it’d no longer be buying new fur from trappers come 2022 and would instead be using reclaimed and recycled fur already part of the supply chain. Now, it appears the coats won’t even be “reclaimed” coyotes, as they’ll cease fur use altogether by 2022. The company plans to stop buying new fur by the end of this year, as previously announced.
The thousand-dollar Canada Goose coat — beloved by Drake and rich normies alike — is most identifiable by its puffiness as well as its fur-lined hood. While the coat is stuffed with goose down feathers, as the name suggests, its hood is lined with coyote fur, something the name “Canada Goose” doesn’t imply in the slightest.
Animal-rights activists, however, have long been aware of the company’s use of coyote fur. “For years, Canada Goose’s trademark parka jackets with coyote fur trim have been synonymous with fur cruelty,” Claire Bass, executive director of the Humane Society, said per BBC, “but their announcement today is another major blow to the global fur trade.” Bass added, “Canada Goose’s fur-free policy will spare untold thousands of coyotes from being maimed and killed in cruel metal leg-hold traps.”
So there you have it: no more coyote for the Goose.
