Do you like to wear fur?

This is actually not new to me and I saw a report on TV about this recently. But today I stumbled across the following website that had more on the chinese fur market where most of US fur comes from. Please, if you know anyone who insists on wearing fur, show them the video posted on the following website. Words cannot describe the horror that these animals must go through.

I like to visit fur frequently, but do not actually wear it.

I always thought of fur as a womens thing, my Grandma has a real nice fur coat.

In the future when I have a wife I would probably treat her to a nice fur coat if thats what she wants.

The only problem with fur is its pretty expensive, a nice coat is like $10k.

Wrong. That is human. You have to rise above the human level before you get to the animal level
