Call On UNIQLO to Ditch Wool From Mutilated Lambs

In Australia, the most commonly raised sheep are merinos, who are not
native to the country and have been genetically bred to have wrinkly skin.
Attracted to the moisture and urine that collects in the wrinkles around the
sheep’s rears, flies lay eggs in the folds of the sheep’s skin, and maggots can
hatch and feed on the sheep. In a misguided attempt to prevent this, millions of
lambs are mutilated each year by having large chunks of skin and flesh cut from
their backsides—often without any pain relief—in a practice known as “mulesing,”
even though humane options are available and in use by many Australian farmers.

PETA and its affiliates have been talking to manufacturers and retailers
around the world and asking them to boycott wool from mulesed sheep, virtually
all of which comes from Australia. Many companies—including HM, Muji, and
Liz Claiborne—have joined the campaign, but UNIQLO has refused to take action.

Please speak up for lambs by contacting UNIQLO—now the fifth largest
retailer in the world—and asking the company to stop purchasing wool from
Australian sources that still practice mulesing.
