Dog and Cat Fur – 10 August 2007
Starting in 2009, the trade of any products containing dog or cat
fur will be banned by the European Union. This ban was approved by
members of the European Parliament in response to public outcry over
the annual killing of more than two million cats and dogs just for
their fur, as estimated by Humane Society International.
What I also find sneaky and disgusting is the sale of items with real
animal fur that are deliberately labeled as “faux” (synthetic) fur!
In this day and age, isn’t it strange that so many people still cling
to the ignorant, passé, and insensitive notion that wearing or using
another animal’s fur or skin, whether real or synthetic, is somehow
fashionable? When we see someone wearing fur or leather, we are “turned
off” and wonder about the wearer’s character.
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
