Re: Just watched

Your right brad

After me seeing a vid on youtube about animal fur. I seeing the cruelty its horrible. Most the time they skin the animals alive.


Heartless tw*ts.

It needs to be stoped.

Re: Just watched

Times change. Fur coats used to be "it", now considered the epitome of bad taste. I wonder how long leather seats, shoes, gloves, jackets, coats etc. have got left before the too are considered in the same light (or chamois leathers)

Re: Just watched

the only people who should be wearing fur coats are the eskimo's, watched a ray mears thing the other day, and they use every last part, nothing is wasted at all. fur for fashion is just plain wrong, but hunting for food and clothes for indiginous peoples is fine IMO.

Re: Just watched

If they're still trapping the animals and skinning them alive, no wonder the boody coats are so dear!

I think you'll find most mink comes from farmed animals, slaughtered like any other animal is for food. Why would anyone go catch one and then skin it alive... ?

Anyway, farmed mink humanely kept and slaughtered.. not sure I have any great problem with it. Not much different to what happens to chickens/eggs in a way.
