Attention Big Cat Lovers and Friends!  You will not believe this story posted on CNN's webpage.  The link is listed below.  It is copywritten material, so I couldn't post it on my page.

http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/africa/11/22/ethiopia.lions.ap/index.html

It sickens me to know how many creatures suffer at the hand of mankind (kind?) for a profit of any size.  Money is at the root of all evil.  


Something that's upset me this week is that it's just began to get cold in Florida - not cold like the northern part of the country, obviously, but cold enough to need a coat.  I can't get over how many fur-trimmed coats I've already seen and it's not even a truly cold state.  It's just insane.  One lady I saw today was in Petsmart (pet supply store) buying for her dog in a fully fur-lined and fur-trimmed coat.  It was upsetting and I couldn't help but wonder what animal -more and likely, animals- suffered for that garment.  I couldn't distinguish what type fur it was.  She probably has no idea what she is truly supporting by buying and owning that coat.  WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO WAKE THEM UP?
