UPDATE TWO

Sears responded on a Google Plus account to a member that the t-shirts were no longer available!

UPDATE | RESPONSE

This seems like a standard response, please keep sending your thoughts, thank you.

Dear Stacey,

Thank you for contacting sears.com. We apologize for any inconvenience or concern caused due to the graphics on the T-shirt. I appreciate the opportunity to assist you.

We regret that you found the T-shirt offensive as that was not our intent. We are listening to what you have to say and we appreciate the time you have taken to let us know what you think about the items sold on our website. We are always looking for ways in which we can improve.

All comments, suggestions, contributions and indeed all feedback from our sears.com customers are very important to us. Please know that our management team reviews feedback submitted by our customers and that many of the changes and additions have been as a result of feedback from our customers.

Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance. We hope that you will continue to make Sears your choice for future purchases.

Sincerely,

BACKGROUND

Sears sells t-shirts glorifying wolf hunting.  Please express your dissatisfaction and decision to boycott until these shirts are no longer available.

SAMPLE COMMENT

I am gravely disappointed to learn that Sears sells I Love Wolf Hunting t-shirts. Hunting animals is cruel and unnecessary.

Animals are inherently sentient and possess the capacity for thought and emotion, including contentment, loneliness, fear, and agony. All animals, human and non-human, experience the desire to live free from exploitation and suffering and fear the manifestation of death. Humans have adopted dangerous constructs of speciesism, the prejudicial regard of non-human species, to validate the brutality inflicted upon them. Using this manufactured status of superiority, humans have sanctioned the use of animals as commodities, regarding them only as products to benefit our goals and needs. We embrace inequity to justify our treatment of animals, which is mere savagery concealed in socially-approved descriptions.

Please recognize that glorifying hunting is unacceptable and discontinue selling merchandise that is contrary to such. Until this time, I will boycott Sears and all related stores.

Thank you for your attention to this appeal.

    The shirt is no longer listed! I wonder if they have totally removed it? I will check out their store in Waterford, CT this weekend. I hope everyone will continue to write in.

    Basically Sears reply is we got your letter, don’t care about your feelings or values and we will sell what we want in order to make a buck, BUT we hope you will still shop our store. NOT! I use to work at Sears and since then have not shopped there because of their non-caring insensitive ways!

    I contacted Sears and got this response: “We appreciate your contacting us regarding the Sears ?Wolf Hunting? merchandise. We take your feedback seriously and have taken appropriate action to ensure all products on the site fit within our guidelines.” Does anyone have a link of the shirt from Sears website? I’d like to e-mail it back to them.

      To some Neanderthals, perpetrating suffering and death is their passion, but they should be prevented from doing it. Purposely going out into the wilderness looking for an innocent (endangered) animal in order to shoot it is psychopathic. If you have to go, take a camera. I wish I could be relieved of having to share this world with the cruel, ignorant and heartless. If all the blood-thirsty were beamed up and off the planet, we could live in a virtual paradise.

    Like we need more calls to violence against innocent animals who are minding their own business in whatever habitat is left to them by greedy, money-grubbing “humans”. Our children surely don’t need to even see a t-shirt such as this, much less wear one. I wrote a letter to Sears.
