NO. That is all I wanted to put but I have to write a bit more. ***Brief History*** The fur trade began in the 1500's as an exchange between Indians and Europeans. The Indians traded furs for such goods as tools and weapons. Beaver fur, which was used in Europe to make felt hats, became the most valuable of these furs. The fur trade prospered until the mid-1800's, when fur-bearing animals became scarce and silk hats became more popular than felt hats made with beaver. By the late 1500's, a great demand for fur had developed in Europe. This demand encouraged further exploration of North America. The demand for beaver increased rapidly in ...

Personally I would never ever wear fur as i've seen the horrific cruelty that the fur trade involves, and i think the main problem is that most people simply aren't aware of this. I mean, usually the animal is skinned alive whilst its squirming in agony as people rip its skin off...something that I don't feel comfortable being the cause of. For more information go to www.peta.org/feat/chineseFurFarms/index.asp I could hardly bare to watch this video, and if you are in support of wearing fur i think that you should watch this and see if your opinion changes.

I am an animal lover and albeit I eat meat I will only eat farm assured outdoor reared meat from trusted supermarkets such as waitrose and local farm shops, so animal welfare is high on my list of priorities in life and hence the debate of to wear or not to wear fur is definately to not wear, ever. I have researched the industry of the fur trade and each and everytime I do and furthur look into it I am appauled, disgusted and sickened by the brutal and unnesscessary torture that it brings. If any human being in their right mind, and had any emotion of mental quality about them wore fur then they would only obviously not know its true brutality of how it ... Read the complete review

Absolutely, I have a fur coat now. It was my Grandmothers and it was passed down to me. It's is THE warmest coat I've EVER worn! There is nothing wrong with fur in my opinion.If you don't wear fur, you shouldn't wear leather or any other by product either. This includes leather seats in your car and leather furniture! Are you fur haters equal opportunity haters???

Would I wear fur? I have never honestly come across real animal fur clothing. If I did i'm pretty sure that I would not feel comfortable wearing it. After all.. I would never want to wear another humans skin! Err... Maybe slightly hypocritical of me to join in this topic as I am an occasional meat eater. It however would never enter my head to wear the fur of an animal. This just makes me feel sick thinking about it. There are imitatitions of fur these days that could be worn instead of actual fur. This would decrease the level of endangered species being killed unnessasarily. However, It could be argued that these imitations of fur actually promote the use ... Read the complete review
