Why Eco Fur? What Are the 'Eco' Benefits

The WWF promotes fur! How low can they go? So possums are pests, so are humans but are we skinning them for fashionable fur trim to stop global warming?

So why don't we skin humans?....that would be much more environmentally friendly .

So what happened...did the predator that normally eats these guys get killed off? If we'd leave the ecosystem alone it could balance itself. Anyone remember what happened to the passenger pigeon? They were deemed "pests" too. If ya wanna wear fur, stop shaving.

The Possums are considered pests? Why? Because they consume these trees, right. If God didn't want Possums here he wouldn't have created them, he dosen't create anything without reason, he dosen't create anything without an ulterior motive! These Possums eat these trees, well, has anyone tried to figure out if maybe these trees need a little thinning out? There is always a food chain, everything on this planet (even though the planet is now in crises) is on this food chain. There is a reason for every animal just as there is a reason for every plant. God has created all in good order, things work out in the long run. The life cycle is meant to stop on the life of the creature not because man/human deams that the market would be good for this fur or that this animal is killing too many trees so we will simply slice the numbers down for Mother Nature. Nothing from this MAKES it right!!!

These possums are still living, breathing creatures! They don't deserve to be killed because they're trying to survive. No animal should ever be killed for its fur - there is never any reason that makes this right, none whatsoever!

Damn right! They have a right to live just like any other creature on the planet. There is nothing good about all this. This is total nonsense and is just an example of more hypocrisy. They just don't want to abandon their god-damned fur love.
