The Wealth and Luxury that WHO deserves?
If you watch TV In the Chicagoland area, it is impossible to escape commercials for Andriana Furs.
Their slogan/jingle is,"Feel the wealth and luxury that you deserve...Andriana Furs." I guess I am missing where any sort of luxury can come from this needless slaughter.
This is not even taking in the fact that many furs come from China, where they are routinely made from cats and dogs. You may think it is only slaughtered minks or rabbits you are wearing, while it could very well be a relative of the beloved family pet. No matter what animal it is, there is no reason EVER to wear fur.
Okay, perhaps this is a little much...if you are living in the mountains with absolutely nothing to keep you warm, and the only way to survive is to kill a bear with your own hands, skin it, and wear it, well then okay, i'll give you that.
But when you walk down to Michigan Avenue and drop a couple grand to wear the fur of slaughtered creatures...there is absolutely no excuse. period.
