Eighty-five percent of the fur industry's skins come from animals who were captive on fur factory farms, where they are crammed into severely crowded, filthy wire cages and later skinned alive.

If anyone saw/heard/experienced what happened to these defenseless sentient beings as they are mercilessly and egregiously subjected to the fear, misery, excruciating suffering, torture, horror and death they would loose their lunch !
It is not elegant nor glamorous. And we do this for fashion, for frivolous adornment? You have to ask yourself, what is wrong with us?!
In this day when we have so many other fantastic non-animal substitute materials available it is unconscionable and indefensible to subject another living, sentient being to any of this.
This sickening practice needs to stop immediately.

After knowing how the beautiful furswere acquired and someone still wants to buy them they should be required to view photos and the sales slip stamped with # of animals murdered to make the item. OR---Require stores to post this information and photos in their fur department IN A PROMINATE PLACE.

Isaac Bashevis Singer Nobel Peace Prize Winner wrote in his book, 'Enemies a love story', "As often has Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish, he always had the same thought. In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Naziís. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplify the most extreme racist theories the principle that might is right. Lest we forget!
