Strawberry Selling Faux Faux Fur -- Not a Typo!

Raccoon dog
Clothing retailer Strawberry has 18 stores in the 5 boroughs.

The Humane Society of the US has issued the following alert:

Warmth Without Cruelty

Dear Friend,
Strawberry, a leading New York-area retailer, was recently found selling real fur vests marked as "faux fur" and unlabeled sweaters trimmed with raccoon dog fur. Strawberry continues to sell rabbit and raccoon dog fur even as other companies reject this cruel trade.
Tell Strawberry to keep fur cruelty out of its product line. With many warm and fashionable alternatives available, there's no reason to wear animal fur and no reason for Strawberry to sell it.
Please call 1-201-393-0600 and ask Strawberry to hold the fur, then  follow up with a quick email » 
Thanks for all you do for animals.
