That's quite funny that you claim normal farms are better than fur farms. Fur is a luxury item which is raised with quality in mind, not quantity. Also that every aspect of an animal's health, especially their emotional state is important for the quality of the coat. ON the other hand have you ever seen a normal chicken farm? No windows save for one to adhere to health guidelines, stuffed to the brim with birds that can barely walk and kill each other by getting tired and end up trampled. Fur farms are far more animal friendly than any normal farm, save for perhaps an independent proprietor.lSHaDoW-FoXl said:Actually, I'm not against normal farms. How they take care of their animals is usually far more pleasant than that of a factory farm or that of a fur farm. My understanding has always been that eating meat is still relevant in our society and there's no point in going on a crusade against it. Fur farming, however, has outlived its purpose. At a time it was acceptable, but that time is long past. Oh, and I'm not a vegan. I'm a vegetarian. I have no qualms with exploitation; I've got qualms with needless suffering. If only because we're all just being exploited anyway.Abandon4093 said:Do you think normal farming is evil too?lSHaDoW-FoXl said:I'm more accustomed to fire. Being the rabid animal rights activist I am I've contributed three posts to this thread, amounting to 'Fur farming is evil'. I do, however, have one question, how along ago was it your family did these things, exactly?Casual Shinji said:My dad had a mink and fox farm and I never saw the harm of it, but that's probably because I grew up in that environment.
One thing I can say for certain, any decent fur farm treats its animals like queens. It might seem morbid, but the better you treat the animals the better the fur will end up looking. And mink and fox fur is generally a luxery item, so any potential buyer will see when animals are mistreated because the resulting fur will look like shit. Skinning a mink or a fox that's dead is already a tough job. Skinning one that's alive is impossible without seriously destroying the value of the fur you're trying to sell.
I don't even understand how one could skin a mink or a fox alive. I don't know if anyone here has ever tried to catch one of these animals with their hands, but without a sturdy pair of gloves your mits will be shred to pieces. I know that these practices do occur in countries like China, but it didn't on the farm my family had, and I'll be damned if we were the only fur farm in the world that treated its live stock humainly.
So yeah, bring on the red paint.
I'm guessing you do, I just want to get a handle on you.
And if you're actually insinuating that you'd set people alight because they own a farm. Well.... I can't really say anything about that which wouldn't get me a ban.
Captcha thingy: vegan zombie wants grains!
Hilarious and relevant. You've one uped yourself solve media, well done... well done.
