Very true! You ever seen a "healthy" looking vegetarian?? I didn't think so.
and I see you changed your sig again. God I hate you. J-K.

what's the point.. they are farmed for their furs.. to me it's the same as raising cows for meat. I say let the rappers have their coats.
07-20-2005, 12:19 PM #13
its the way they skin them I guess that is the brutal thing i have heard of skinning them while alive and shit.
also meat is alot more important then for some people to prance around in mink fur.

They dont even care to put them in sleep first, they just remove the skin while the animal is alive and it takes sometimes hours for the animal to die. Dont you think it is brutal to club thousands of seal cubs each year so some fat rich sluts can wear?
Eating is essential, you can not substitute meat with something else we need protein but killing an animal for just its fur is barbaric, we are no longer living in caves, it is year 2005, 21st century.....

Totaly agree with this. We humans do such filthy things against animals that its sicening. Food is one thing but tormenting animals so a few rich ****ers can prance around in furs is ****ed upp.
07-21-2005, 06:15 AM #22Originally Posted by alevok
So sign a petition that urges them to kill the animals more humanely.

Similar petitions have done alot to put restrictions on the mink farmers in sweden so signing them is not useless.
The whole point of this petition isnt any vegan bullshit or anything like that. Just a way to stop useless, cruel slaughter of animals. Honestly is furs so important that thousands after thousdans of minks have to suffer unnesecarly? Had it been animal testing for new drugs I wouldnt oppose it, had it been for food I wouldnt oppose it. But they suffer just so a few ****s are gonna be able to walk in a ****ing fur. THAT IS WRONG.

My question is this: Would it make everyone happier if they just put the "cute little fuzzy creatures" to sleep... before peeling their skin off? Or humanely kill them? Because lets face it, regardless of what you think about who buys the $hit, $luts, or whatever, if there is a market for it which there most OBVIOUSLY is... its gonna happen. And there is nothing a petition is going to do about it. It doesn't matter if it is Sweden, France, USA, or what... a market is a market.
Besides all that. the arguments here seme week to me... the one argument is that they are being farmed for their fur in the first place. Well, like i said, if there is a market for it then it is gonna happen. But it seems the other issue is that they are "de-skinned" while still alive .... SO, where is the real issue? or is this just a rant. See my point? Why pick on furs?? I grew up on a farm. I've butchered cows,pigs, and sheep. But I don't hear anyone complaining about how they are put down? if at all. Cows would get shot in the back of the head in a stall, pigs; clubbed, sheep; if they weren't to amped we'd cut their throat... so what constitutes "humane"
I think if you are going to cry about Minks and small furry creatures being killed for furs, then you should probably take a good lookat your own clothes, your wives/girlfriends beauty products, your shoes, your baseball gloves, the meat you choose to eat to maintain your diet, etc. The list is endless.
The bottom line is this. World economy exists on the given MARKETS. Be it the stock market ---> all the way down to that cute little mink. If the people are willing to pay for a product, then right behind that you will find a streamlined process to make that happen.

I se your points bro. I am no animal rights activist. But sweden has almost banned mink farms. We are so close to a complete ban that is why the petition is important.
My biggest thing is the way they skin them alive sometimes. If they where put down before I wouldnt have a problem with it. the second thing is how they are keept. In tiny cages cram packed togheter.
There is a market for the furs. But with any luck swedish mink furs will not be a product on that market anymore.
I also support orginasations that want more humane cattle transportation, bigger room for chickens ect. Im not against using animals as food, But atleast dont make them suffer before slaughter.
