Fur Trade

I just have to say that right now, all I want to do is go home and cuddle up with my dog and cat. My brother sent me a youtube video today that I have not been able to watch in its entirety, nor do I intend to. I will also not be posting the video on my blog.

I will, however, post links to the Humane Society and Swiss Animal protection reports on the fur trade industry.

Please be warned that the video that you can find on these sites is extremely disturbing. It's not as heart wrenching as the video my brother sent, but it is still very difficult to watch - and I must admit that I did more listening to the report than watching.

Please do not buy fur. Real or fake. Period. Hopefully, without a market to sell it in, these unspeakable acts will stop happening.
