I love animals, but I look at it this “so-called” inhumane behavior like the circle of life. Indian’s lived off of Buffalos for their hide. Lions eat Zebras, last time I saw Madagascar. Eskimos wear wolf skins as they are naturally protective of cold and snow. I’d say if I had to guess, at least 75% of the world eats chicken or fish or some kind of meat. I sure love a nice filet mignon, or meat lovers pizza. That is what we call living off the land. Then there’s those pushy vegetarians who want to make everyone else eat like them. You know what I think about vegetarians? They are lacking serious health nutrients that come from meat. Meat is what builds muscle, proteins. You ever notice all those hippie vegetarians in those vegan spots are really, really skinny?

So of course I disagree with animal cruelty, or killing animals in a cruel way. I even saw an undercover story about a major dairy company and how foul the animals living conditions were. The animals were covered in feces, and the ground they walked in was 12″ of muddy feces. This saddened me. Yes I’m still human just because I like fur. But I’m sure that the animals are put to sleep painlessly, that they don’t cut their heads off when they are still alive.
I heard about US Vogue editor, Anna Wintour getting a raccoon thrown in her face while dining at the Four Seasons, by a PETA member. That is just ridiculous. I’d like to see some punk disrespect me while I’m eating lunch like that. These PETA activists are out of control. Try get out of control on somebody who’s willing to get down back. They complain about the energy it takes to produce a fur. It depends how you produce it, there are several ways. And if you haven’t heard, it takes energy to produce ALL clothing. Ah! the beauty of cheap manufacturing and globalization. If they’re so high and mighty then why don’t they go spin some cotton that they grow naturally in their back yard with a spinning wheel to make homemade thread and knit their own clothing. I’m sure they drive cars, or airplanes, or even use aerosol hairspray. Besides, fur can last a life time. Clothing, you throw away all the time, but fur can last forever if properly cared for.
BESIDES. . . most furs are rodents such as chinchillas, squirrels and rabbits and pests like foxes and beavers or plain predatorial animals like cougars, wolfs, bears, etc. I’m pretty sure these PETA members don’t let rats live in their house. This isn’t rattatouile. I’m sure they have mouse traps and kill them and dispose of them like everybody else. And anybody who keeps rats and mice for pets have personality disorders. Why would you look at a squirrel any different from a common pest, the house rat. They’re not cute house pets, they’re disease ridden creatures, and I’m sure if you tried to pet one they’d just bite you. As for Wolfs and bears, come on, they’re regularly hunted, a tradition that has been going on since the beginning of time. I do believe that animals should be preserved, if they are on the brink of extinction, but we already have laws in tact to protect endangered wildlife. So who cares if they breed 1000’s of rodents? It goes with the KFC rumor. Supposedly they breed chickens in test tubes. Who gives a damn?! They create it, they make it, they own it. Even if it was true, I LOVE KFC CHICKEN!!! THEY MAKE THE BEST CHICKEN EVER!!!
So I must confess something. I’m Cruella D’ville. If I could have a snow leopard coat, or a cheetah coat, or even a white tiger fur, I’D DIE FOR ONE! SUE ME!!!!
