Please reinstate Harvey Nichols' fur-free policy immediately!

Sir, Madam, To whom it concerns:
I am truly disgusted to learn that Harvey Nichols' management has made the inexplicable decision to renege on the store's near decade-long no-fur policy!
Killing animals in the name of vanity is unacceptable.
The fur trim items that you have selected to be sold in Harvey Nichols stores are made from the skins of foxes, raccoons and rabbits and are the product of a barbaric and bloody industry.
Recent investigations into fur farms in so-called "high-welfare" countries such as Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland have all revealed animals driven insane by confinement to tiny, filthy wire cages. 
Animals who survive this living hell are either gassed or anally electrocuted. Yet these countries are part of the fur trade's misleadingly named "Origin Assured" scheme.
Ninety-five per cent of Britons say that they would never wear real fur, and given the abundance of designers using realistic faux-fur fabrics, there's no excuse for selling clothes made with real fur.
Please reinstate Harvey Nichols' fur-free policy immediately!
Until you do so, I won't be shopping in your stores and will ask my family and friends to do the same!
