I am glad to see they are doing something about this. Just lock them up and throw away the key.

If people would not buy these products there would be no market. I have often wondered about people who proudly wear the skins of animals facing extinction.

Thanks Tom

Thnx Tom. Hopefully this will be a step towards helping a lot of these animals. People who trade in the slaughter of animals or wear the skins of such creatures should be skinned themselves.
