So sad! People have so much to wear. What gives us the right to believe animals are there for us to abuse, exploit and kill. Animals are her as we are to be, let them BE!

With all the technology we now have and the eco awareness - couldn't they use synthetic textiles? Mankind is so crafty they can mimic anything now days. They could still earn the same wage and do no harm to the snow leopards. These cats are so beautiful - and they deserve to live free and unthreatened. I would rather go naked then wear THEIR fur.

I agree with Amy- we can make synthetic almost everything- why do we have to kill endangered animals???
