Animals Are Being Violently Killed for Brands Like Gucci PeTA

No matter what standards companies tout, PETA entities have repeatedly exposed the horrendous ways in which animals are abused by the exotic skins trade. A previous PETA Asia investigation documented that snakes in Vietnam are killed by being inflated with compressed air and that crocodiles are electroshocked, stabbed, inflated, and then likely skinned alive. In South Africa, PETA U.S. investigators caught workers on camera striking ostriches in the face during transport, and at the slaughterhouse, they were stunned and flipped upside down, and then their throats were slit in full view of the other terrified birds—all for the bumpy-textured ostrich-skin purses sold by Gucci.

No bag, belt, or wallet is worth so much pain and suffering. Please don’t buy accessories made out of exotic skins: Choose humane, eco-friendly, vegan options instead.

Urge Gucci to Drop Exotic Skins

Gucci banned fur and angora after hearing from PETA and our supporters. It’s time for the company to do the same with exotic skins. Please join PETA in calling on Gucci to stop using exotic skins today.

I just watched PETA Asia’s investigation into an Indonesian slaughterhouse that supplies your company with lizard skin. The footage shows lizards being callously thrown around, struck with a machete, and beheaded without stunning to make bags, belts, wallets, and other fashion accessories.

Please stop profiting from this abuse and drop exotic skins.

According to reptile experts, decapitating live, conscious reptiles is highly inhumane, because it doesn’t cause an instantaneous death. Lizards’ brains can remain conscious for over 30 minutes after they have been beheaded. PETA’s previous exposés have shown that pythons in Vietnam are killed by being inflated with compressed air and that crocodiles are electroshocked, stabbed, inflated, and then likely skinned alive.

PETA also obtained footage of ostriches—whose skin is used for the bumpy-textured purses sold by Gucci—showing that they’re kept in barren dirt feedlots before being sent for slaughter, where they’re forcibly restrained, electrically stunned, and flipped upside down, and then their throats are slit in full view of their terrified flockmates. No matter what “standards” your parent company, Kering, touts, there is simply no kind way to kill a living being who does not want to die. Gucci has already made the compassionate decision to ban fur and angora—please stop supporting animal abuse by also ending your sales of exotic skins. Kind regards,
