It is hard to fathom that anyone is still wearing fur. It is so plain to see that killing animals for their fur is completely barbaric. The only purpose is vanity. ~Joaquin Phoenix
I cannot understand why anyone would want to wear anything that even resembles or gives the impression of wearing fur!
It is important that this instance is thoroughly investigated; it could be that the marketing mistakenly told the truth!

It sounds like there was a misdescription but obviously it has to be thoroughly investiated.

In the meantime, why not use faux ocelot fur, it looks and feels like the real thing, it may not be quite as good as the real thing on boots but it looks so much better on the ocelot.
