This video, narrated by fur-free fashion designer Todd Oldham, depicts a succession of salespeople denying that animals are drowned, electrocuted and trapped, and have their necks broken in the production of fur coats, followed by graphic scenes from recent PETA exposes of fur farms showing the contrary. To capture the deception on tape, fashion model Magali allowed PETA to outfit her with a concealed camera and then posed as a customer interested in purchasing a fur.

Salespeople at fur salons in Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue have been caught on camera repeatedly deceiving customers about how animals are killed for their fur in order to make a sale.

Salespeople at fur salons in Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue have been caught on camera repeatedly deceiving customers about how animals are killed for their fur in order to make a sale.

This sting is the culmination of a five-year investigation that began on fur farms in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Pennsylvania, and ended up in the fur salons of Fifth Avenue.

"These people are peddling $20,000 coats. If they were $20,000 cars and the dealers lied so blatantly about how they were made, they would be put out of business," says Oldham.
