Pledge to Save Booty!
Did you know that lambs in the Australian wool industry often have huge chunks of skin cut from their booties with instruments resembling gardening shears—often without any painkillers? Sounds pretty gruesome, right?
The Australian wool industry engages in this cruel practice in a misguided attempt to prevent flystrike, a condition in which maggots eat the sheep alive after flies lay eggs in the folds of the their wrinkly skin. But humane methods of flystrike prevention that don't involve mutilating sheep are already in use by many farmers.
YOU can save booty! Sign our pledge below to ditch wool and stop supporting an industry that thinks it's OK to mutilate animals.
I'm not down with cutting up someone's booty! I pledge never to wear wool or any product that comes from Australian sheep and to share what I know with all my friends and family.
