Just returned from London and Europe where they wear every kind of exotic fur know to man and beasts to learn about this interesting story from Hollywood or as some call it Hollywird!
West Hollywood recently became the first city to officially put a ban on fur, and though it won’t come into effect until September 2013, retailers in the area are already expressing their grievances.
I would be interested to know how many of you have an opinion one way or the other? Should we ban the sale of fur and all that goes with the production and association of fur products or not?
While living and working in Munich 20 plus years ago I was guilty of purchasing a “waschbaer” (raccoon) jacket. After learning more about the farming and the killing of animals used to keep us warm and beautiful I sold it at a garage sale here in LA for $10.00.
My feeling now is, why have any animal die in pain and suffer if there is no really NEED to do so? We have many other choices of clothing to keep us warm and beautiful. I now look at fur and can only hear and see suffering eyes, cries of pain and confusion.
So I say GOOD FOR YOU HOLLYWOOD! Congratulations on leading the pack!
