You don't believe in wearing real fur, do you?!

Fur is like leather, isn't it?

Yes it is, and I'm sorry and ashamed to say that about a year ago, I bought a leather sofa and loveseat, and recliner. Back then I didn't realize what I do now, much less looked at websites like the link I provided here for you.

Then again, you and I, we do eat meat...

...and sometimes the killing of animals for meat is not done in a good way, either.

Yes we do. I've been thinking of becoming a vegetarian, but my miserable mangy body is too carnivorous to give it up successfully . Perhaps someday, but I don't think so.

I feel it's another matter, killing fox, mink and rabbit, just for the purpose of vanity.

Your body is mangy? C'mere and let me check it out for myself. You need a second opinion...

Well one person's vanity is another person's cuisine. I mean, if that's true then there's no need to go to an expensive restaurant to eat a prime rib made to look fancy and taste delicious and cost $30.

We use animal products for food, medicine, food coloring, clothing and accessories of all kinds.

I don't know. You're right about all the things animals are used for, but I just can't see an animal like the mink being killed just for its fur, when there are so many other man-made materials that keep us just as comfortable.

Omit steak and lobster from my diet? Nah, never!

See, I just realized I'm a hypocrite! :o(

I'll just stick to taking care of stray dogs and cats! :o)

Guns are for shooting the two legged potential killers!

take it further,and stop eating animals period.

whether you kill for fur or for meat, dead is dead.

ick.

fur makes me sick.
people who eat meat but couldn't kill it themselves "becauses its cruel or gross" are deluding themselves.

in fact, i'd like to see anyone who wants to wear fur, catch it, kill it, skin it themselves.

You're right.

I will not buy fur, but I will buy meat. Wish I could go that step further and become a vegetarian, but I can't. I love fish and beef too much.

If I were starving, I would most definitely be able to kill the animal for survival, but to kill an animals for it's fur, when there are so many other materials available for our warmth and comfort, I would never.

Re: Be careful what you wish for.
go ahead. i'd give you props.

most of the people who eat meat COULD NOT kill it themselves "cause its cruel."

its being removed from what you eat, which makes us unhealthy and unaware of what we put in our bodies. if someone can kill it themselves and prepare it, more power to them.

most of the people here in the U.S couldn't.

good reply!

i'd still like to make people have to actually kill a cow at least once, instead of having some poor sap in a slaughter house do it.

just once...then they can eat as many cows as they want.

i'll check out that site.

i think i'd settle for kill only, as processing meat actually takes some experience.


don't want to waste the meat once you killed the cow/chicken/pig.

Ugh. Yeah. I am so behind that. I haven't bought her stuff, and I won't be seeing her movies. Don't forget P. Diddy, and Mary J Blige.

I had no idea she was profiting from the slaughter of these animals. I won't be spending the little I have on her, either.

P. Diddy, and Mary J. Blige? Who are they?

In general I can see your point. As a licensed firearms owner have a personal dislike for hunting for taking trophies. It upsets me a little that an animal could be killed for so little value other than the joy of it's death. On the other hand, here in Australia animals that give fur for the garment trade are routinely hunted simply for the fact that they are feral non native animals. Foxes and rabbits are introduced species and huge problems. In fact rabbits can get to plague proportions. So I would have no problem with slaughtering them, and using the skins for garments and coats. They would still be shot anyway.

Foxes are the same. As long as the animals were trapped or shot in the wild, eradicating a pest, I think it is a fair thing.

Do you realise the lovely crocodile shoes and leather products come from crocs bred on farms for meat and hides?

ONe more question. Should you succeed in eliminating the fur trade, what would you do with all the animals that are kept in farms and pens for harvesting? They are specially bred for the fur, and have no capacity for living free. Nor would it be ecologically viable to suddenly release thousands of potential nasty little predators and rodents into the environment. They aren't domesticable as pets, so the only sensible thing to do would be to euthanase them as keeping them in cages and pens for the rest of their natural lives would be just as cruel as harvestign tehir fur.

You see, it just isn't a simple thing.

Having said all that, I can think of no good reason at all for the culling of baby fur seals, nor for the "scientific culling" of whales.

Yes, I can see now that it isn't so simple. What you have shared makes a great deal of sense.

The only thing that upsets me is that there are people growing rich through this bloodshed of the animals. I just can't see how anyone could wear these furs without realizing how they came to be on their bodies. Yet, I'm as bad as they are, because I love lobster!

I can understand killing animals for food, but not for anything else.

Thank you for all this information!

That's so wrong. If people saw pictures of what the animals went through I'm sure they would think twice about buying fur.

I think it's wrong, too, to profit monetarily at the expense of these animals for vanity.

If you ever go up to the Artic or to the mountains, fur is a lot better to keep you warm than synthetic materials. Plus fur feels a LOT better than other materials too. This is one area where I have to disagree with you.
