Game of Thrones is using real animal fur for their TV Series. Fur is cruel and entirely unnecessary. Common methods of obtaining fur include, gassing, trapping, and anal electrocution.
Although Game of thrones is getting their fur from a company (House of De Clifford) that claims to not use endangered animals, this is no comfort for the innocent animals who suffer and die due to the cruel practices of the fur industry.
Ask the show creators, David Benioff and Daniel B. Weiss to insist that only faux fur be used because entertainment is no reason to support animal suffering.
“We were also approached by the Northern Irish television team HBO, and were glad to help by supplying them with ethically sourced furs used in during filming of the widely awaited production of “Game of Thrones” starring Sean Bean.”
There is no such thing as “ethical fur”.

Kitson: Please Stop Selling Fur - http://www.change.org/petitions/kitson-please-stop-selling-fur
Millions of animals, including rabbits, raccoons, and foxes, are painfully trapped in steel-jaw leg hold traps each year. Those who don’t freeze or starve are usually beaten to death or suffocated when the trapper arrives hours or days later. Animals held captive on fur farms spend their short lives crowded in wire cages where they suffer from inadequate water, disease, parasites, and stress. The animals are killed by anal electrocution, poisoning, or suffocation. Those who don’t die immediately are skinned alive. People assume that a scrap of fur on the collar is fake and I assure you that many would be appalled to learn that it is real. Over two million cats and dogs are killed in China for their fur. Most of Kitson’s fur was made in China, and could very well come from man’s best friend. Each year, more and more consumers are becoming aware of the horrors against animals done by the fur industry and have been letting companies know that they do not want any part of it.
Intermix: Please Go Fur Free! - http://www.change.org/petitions/intermix-please-go-fur-free
Intermix has every type of slaughtered and skinned animal for sale: Fox fur, rabbit fur, raccoon fur, and even coyote fur. Not only is fur disgustingly cruel, but it is totally unnecessary when there are so many fabulous faux fur options available. As long as shops like Intermix continue to sell fur, the fur industry will thrive, and the senseless killing of fur bearing animal will continue. When the public speaks, the industry listens. If we put pressure on Intermix and express our feelings about their sale of fur, we can make a change. Any shopping at Intermix is supporting this bloody industry, so I encourage everyone to cease shopping at Intermix until they go fur free. Please help the animals by signing our petition and together we can put compassion back in fashion.

RACCOONS SKINNED ALIVE FOR UGGS
Just when you thought that footwear involving the mutilation of millions of sheep couldn’t get any ugglier, several makers of knock-off UGG-style boots have been found to use fur from animals who were beaten and skinned alive. Tests conducted on products labeled as “Australian sheepskin” found that they were actually made of raccoon dog fur, most likely from animals confined to barbaric Chinese fur farms. Raccoon dogs are confined to row upon row of tiny wire cages that are exposed to the elements. Many of the animals go insane from the intensive confinement. Undercover video footage shows raccoon dogs as they are dragged from cages and slammed repeatedly to the ground before being skinned while still conscious. Some survive for as long as 10 minutes, blinking in pain on a pile of other bodies.
The tests also found that some boots contained domestic dog fur, which made it into Australia despite the country’s ban on dog and cat fur.
Since you never can be sure whose fur ends up on your boots, coat, or gloves, the best thing to do is avoid all fur.DON’T SUPPORT UGGS. <- CLICK THIS FOR SOURCE
