Tell Miss USA: Fur Is Not Beautiful - Sign the Petition

Animals  (tags: )

- 2808 days ago -
Fur coats have been given away as beauty pageant prizes for years. Bob Barker quit as host over 20 years ago because of the fur giveaways and, despite the decline in popularity, Miss USA and other pageants continue to ally themselves with the fur industry

Why anyone things being cloaked in a dead animal is "beautiful" is beyond me - yuk.

She should know better - no sensitivity to environmental causes - how can she represent the US?

Noted and signed, thank you Tarequl. In the 1980's I used to have a T shirt that read 'Fur coats are worn by beautiful animals and ugly people'. It is so disappointing that the T shirt is still relevant today as some still think that it is OK to wear fur.

Long ago when I was a teenager, I told my mother that I would like to wear a coat of fur real fur!. She drew my attention to a picture in a magazine of 6 chinchillas in a row with their heads in glass bottles that appeared to be peanut butter bottles, suffocated.

Being born with a special gene of compassion towards humanity and respect for the living, I saw the reality behind this gruesome picture without reading the article. She explained to me that those fur bodies are denied sunshine, grass and living space. They are specially bred to be imprisoned for their whole lives and eventually to die for the sake of vanity. She taught me that quality of life is important for all humans, including all animals.

Today the fur industry is at large and peanut butter bottles with suffocating animal heads inside are forgotten. The trade has stepped up a level and mastered the skills in the cruel killing of fur animals.

As an adult I am well aware of the bloody fur industry. New methods are being implemented, but not less suffering for those animals.

Some are being electrocuted with thongs being held in their mouths and in the rectum to protect the skin. Some are strangled and their necks are broken, to die in agony to protect the skin. Some are tied down on all four paws and a red hot poker is inserted in the rectum and the internal organs are poked till the animal die, suffering slowly to protect the skin. Some are skinned alive before the body can bleed to protect the skin.

Each human body is compared to a puzzle. Some puzzles are incomplete. There is a missing piece and that piece is the very soul that that makes the difference between you and me. Your body, fur producer, manufacturer and wearer are a piece of flesh filled with emptiness. You are wearing the fur of an animal to cover up the gaping hole that lacks conscience.

I am blessed to have good qualities of being human and I live and portrait these qualities with each and every step I walk on this planet. My soul is alive and active to care about all living beings on this earth.

My ethics have taught me from a young age that my character is not equipped to be cruel towards any animal. You are a stake holder in the fur industry and you are the reason and cause why the fur industry is blooming. You are the reason why bloody bodies are stacked up in a pile and left to rot, while their skins are turned into garments for you to wear. These dead bodies have more soul than you!

Not all humans are born with integrity
