Try It Yourself
If anyone considering wearing fur had to personally take the scared, struggling animals from their cages on a fur farm and apply the electrocution device or snap their necks, fur fashion would quickly lose its appeal. If a prospective fur wearer had to personally dispatch an animal who was gnawing off her own leg to escape a leg hold trap, there is no fur industry propaganda that would work. Fur fashion does make a statement, and it is not a flattering one.
