Christina Sewell, PETA's assistant manager of clothing campaigns, talks to host Emil Guillermo about PETA's undercover video investigation that has resulted in first time ever animal cruelty charges filed against the major angora goat farmers at the center of the world's production headquarters in South Africa.
Sewell describes what's at stake and how companies like Free People must do the right thing and stop using mohair. Other companies have since the investigation broke. But there are still holdouts.
Time for consumers to take action and say no to mohair products.
Sewell talks about her own transformation, having grown up in a military base, then going into the army herself. She left to join PETA. She describes how she got on track and how despite the images of cruelty she sees every day, she stays the course to fight for the animals, like the angora goats in South Africa.
