idc about fur farming i’m just fed up of people framing people trying to make a living as animal-skinning sick psychopaths it’s goddamn stupid :I people are just so damn eager to believe that these people commit the most atrocious acts possible daily
I’m not gonna be one of those people that falls for the whole ‘they skin them alive!’ thing. but.
You have to understand that these people make a living killing animals.
They are completely desensitized to them being living things.
their goal is to get the nicest fur possible.
I mean geez. Any industry where there is the mass killing of animals for one purpose or another, (meat, feeder animals, etc) it’s inhumane.
You can’t tout something as being humane because it looks good on paper.
Because you are just sitting back and looking at it on paper. Or just looking at your small, personal experience.
Like that one person. ‘I’ve skinned animals before and I was humane!’ That’s great. The vast majority of people? not.
What you did? skinned an animal for no good damn reason. We are not native people who need the fur for warmth and tradition. We are not living in harsh environments where we hunt for food and keep the skin for warmth as well, like many people that are more cut off do.
I could write an essay about how inhumane fur trapping is, contrary to what advocates tell you. And they are reasonable, honest reasons. Not trying to blow it out of proportions.
If you love animals, you don’t support the fur trade.
and when it comes down to it, no matter how ‘humane’ they claim fur farming/trapping is, it’s still killing an animal for fashion.
Not for food, not for any other use. Just fashion. And that is wrong.
Not arguing here, but what about taxidermy?
I personally disagree with your views that every person who skins is a monster, but I respect them and I am simply curious on situation and circumstances. C: Sorry if this is a bother~
Taxidermy can be inherently different, because taxidermists get their animals from various sources.
They can get them from private hunters, people who farm their own meat, vets, animal sanctuaries, pet owners/farmers, roadkill, etc. Any NUMBER of places.
Taxidermists aren’t going out and fur farming and skinning and mounting with a complete waste of the animal. Then they wouldn’t have any kind of range of animals to mount or tan.
Taxidermists get brought their animals, buy them, or are opportunistic. They aren’t actively participating in the inhumane killing of the animals that happens during the fur trapping.
I, personally, won’t buy any animal parts that were hunted or trapped. (and I own many skulls!)
But I don’t hate people who want to be taxidermists. It’s really an art form, and I can admire it.
also I didn’t mean people who skin animals are monsters. I just meant people who hunt/trap animals specifically for their skin! It’s inhumane and wasteful.
I think I need this.
