PETA feuds with FDNY over Canada Goose partnership

Fur is flying between animal-rights group PETA and the FDNY Foundation over outerwear-maker Canada Goose.

The Foundation partnered with Canada Goose to produce and sell a limited-edition fundraiser jacket, which is available Friday.

But the day before coats hit shelves, PETA caused a flap by claiming it convinced Foundation chairman Steve Ruzow that Canada Goose abuses animals and got him to pull support for the coats.

“Although the FDNY Foundation’s contract with Canada Goose prohibits it from stopping the jackets’ release, the FDNY will not be promoting the coats or the partnership,” the group said in a press release, claiming “the chair of the FDNY Foundation reviewed damning video footage and other information and confirmed to PETA that the FDNY will never work with Canada Goose again.”
