      PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk fired off a letter to President Bush after
      learning that a hatmaker in Greeley, Colorado, has been commissioned to
      create a beaver-fur cowboy hat for his January 20th inauguration ceremony (to read
      the letter, click here).

      Beavers are gentle, inquisitive, family-oriented animals who mate for life
      and remain friends with their children. Beavers can live to be 20 years old
      and are expert architects—their complex, sturdy lodges can stand for years. They
      constantly maintain their homes, taking obvious pride in their work, and are
      even known to enjoy flute music. Female beavers are especially busy as they
      care for their young while also looking after their rambunctious “teenagers.”


      Body-gripping traps used to kill beavers cause them immeasurable suffering.
      In many cases, the traps fail to catch on target. If the traps do not kill
      the beavers immediately, they drown slowly, suffering for an excruciating 20
      minutes while their family stands by helplessly. Death by drowning is extremely
      cruel—even the American Veterinary Medical Association condemns it—and such
      torturous treatment of a dog or cat would merit charges of cruelty to
      animals.

      Please inform President Bush that you object to killing beavers and other
      animals for fur. He and his family share the White House with two companion
      dogs, Barney and Miss Beazley. Politely remind the president that beavers feel
      pain just as these dogs do and that all animals deserve our compassion, not
      just the ones with whom we live.
