While I'll never shame anyone who has ever had to hunt meat to survivie and wear that meat's fur, I'll never understand the sale of fur as a luxury item. Why would you want to wear a living being's skin on your own skin, and why on earth would you ever think that it's something to celebrate? Activists who rescue animals from fur farms believe the same thing, and recently some activists freed 170 white foxes from a Chinese fur farm to prevent their deaths.
The foxes have since been given shelter at a Buddhist sanctuary, and while their escape might affect the livelihood of the people who work at the fur farm, we can only hope that they might enter into a more humane practice sometime in the future, preferably (and hopefully) when the practice becomes illegal.
