Fashion designer Marc Jacobs was recently caught selling clothing with real dog fur! The items were not labeled as real fur, and I'm sure Marc Jacobs doesn't want to intentionally sell dog fur,

(un)Well, "better" (ie. less horrible) fur from a mercy-killed stray dog than from from any "fur-farmed" animal.

People who are violent to animals rarely stop there.

Fur coats are worn by beautiful animals, and ugly, deranged people.

Only animals and sluts wear fur.

Signed. Fur, leather and feathers belong to the animals & humans do not have the right to take it from the original owners.

How low can a human being sink? Well, here is an example. Greed knows no bounds--neither does an act of cruelty such as this. No compassion, no kindness, no nothing. Just monsters committing monstrous crimes against animals and other monsters designing clothes from their fur. I give up.

I don't even like faux fur. Sometimes it is real fur and if not, it still perpetuates the idea that fur is good design material.

DOG FUR not only is the idea disgusting, but sort of person would knowingly wear such "clothing" I have 3 shih tzu companions and if anyone dared to even think of using their beautiful hair for anything other than protecting their lovely little bodies, be assured they would walk/crawl away with a lot of missing parts! May sound extreme on my part but it is no different than those who raise any animal to be killed for some moronic designer to use in their "fashion designs" or the 1% who would wear them. If mark Jacobs continues this sick practice I hope his fashion empire collapses!

Noted and signed. Looked at the video, absolutely sickening. Of course it had to be in China. They seem to enjoy torturing animals, I have seen similar things in China towns in Asia. Disgusting culture.
As for people wearing fur, they are just as responsible.

Pretty vague accusation, actually. What are the specifics? When did this happen and how is it known? I'm curious about why it might be unacceptable to use dog "fur" (technically HAIR) that has been gathered from pet groomers? The photo above shows a Cocker Spaniel. They are frequently shaved to the skin, as are Poodles and many other breeds. Why not put that hair to use?

What do people think that they will not get caught? That God turns his face when his creation is being abused?
Whoever thinks that has got to be mental!

Fur isn't a necessity for survival. We have alternatives. Why sell items with fur? And if you do LABEL THEM properly so those who are opposed won't purchase them.
