If you don't buy it...

...the fur trimmed 'whatever' it is: the little notebook with a furry bobble on the clasp, the hoodie coat with furry collar, the boots, the purse, the shoes, etc., etc., ad nauseum...






Then these atrocities won't happen as frequently, and when they do, YOU WON'T BE RESPONSIBLE!




Conservative MEP Struan Stevenson, said: "Slaughter of these animals is
horrific, with cats strangled outside their cages as other cats look on.



"Dogs noosed with metal wires are slashed across the groin until they bleed
to death as the wire noose cuts into their throat."

Oh, and this is yet another reason NOT to go to the pending Olympic games, in case you might've been considering it.
The good news is that the E.U. is attempting to behave with some degree of responsibility by banning items bearing the fur from cats and dogs from being imported. Good job for a start, where's the rest of the world on this? Where are the illustrious leaders of the rest of 'the West'?
Canadians and Americans need to excercise their mighty market. Put your money where your mouth is, stop buying this stuff.
Of course, I'm sure there are plenty of sick fuckers who'll not care one way or the other, in those cases, at least what comes around goes around....
