And it begins again…

Colder weather means dead animals start creeping back onto hoods, collars and sleeves, in the fur industry’s annual parade of profits.

Sadly, Amazon named an animal fur-trimmed women’s jacket as number one of five highlighted coats on their homepage. The $378.00 coat is described simply as a “Long fur trim hood parka, with removable vest”. The type of animals killed for the “look” aren’t even identified.

Judging by the admittedly small photos on Amazon, I’m guessing canine. Maybe coyote. Maybe raccoon dog. Maybe even domestic dog. The vast majority of fur trim items are imported, and without DNA testing, its impossible to know for sure. It is possible to know, however,  that living beings suffered and died.
