A down to earth article about fur and the growth of the industry.

"WARNING" the article discusses every type of fur bearing animal that is being harvested through out the world (including some furs in civilized countries that are considered completely off limits!!).

I read the first article. I shook my head at the verbiage used regarding leather in the figure: "...animals slaughtered for leather..." I think this is probably accurate, but the majority of leather for shoes, jackets and so forth is coming from cows. Yeah, cows are slaughtered. Is it distasteful? Yes, but leather ISN'T driving the cattle industry, food is. People would make a greater impact if they didn't eat at McDonald's!

 

My $0.02.
