Wearing fur is no different to wearing leather, why should a Cow or Sheep die for a Jacket or pair of shoes and not a mink or fox. As long as the animals are not endangered and killed humanely why not, eating meat, wearing leather and complaining about people wearing fur in my opinion is hypocritical.

ok fair enough but if we kill the animal to eat its for a resonable course but just to kill and wear them seems abit uncalled for.

The thing is the animals killed for leather cannot be used for meat because they would be too tough so killing for leather is no different to killing for fur

As long as it's a quick and painless death, then it's okay

Side: yes

Well .. people freeze. I mean I wouldn't wear it myself.

But that's because I think it is stupid to use them as a fashion thing. You should use their fur if you live in north Canada and are about to freeze to death, not because you want to look rich or classy.

If I'm out in the wilderness somewhere where it's cold as fuck, and I see a bear that I believe I can kill, and end up killing it and safely extract the fur so that I can wear it to stay alive? Hell yes it's right to kill an animal for their fur. There's not even a question.

Side: yes

It's okay as long as you use every part of the animal and kill them humanely. You also have to treat the fur with respect and not just throw it away when it's out of fashion. Fur and leather were very useful and continue to be in extreme cold climates.

Right and wrong are subjective. As far as being as the top of the food chain, and able to kill animals for just their fur goes, I'd say it's justifiable. Though I completely understand the moral side against this saying, no other animal in nature does this, but my rebuttal to that is. No other animal in nature is the top of the food chain.

Side: yes

No, animals are meant to be eaten, not worn. And even then, not all animals have to be used as food.

Only if it's needed for survival like I don't know your stuck in a forest or something and you need to wear something warmer than the clothes on your back. But ruthless killing for a rich persons fashion sense is pretty sick to me. I refuse to wear animal skin wool is ok since it's the skin it's the fluffy outside of the sheep. but were you have to actually take the skin off of the animal I think is wrong. Like leather for example.

This is what comes into my head when I think of this topic

I would prefer that this didn't happen... only if the animal is also used as food.

I just deleted a whole sarcastic paragraph about why people may like to have fur coats, but no reasons why it is a correct thing to do. You can say that " well it's natural to kill animals, and fur coats are warm.."

I am sure too if I wore a child's skin over my head in the winter, it would keep me warmer than before, it doesn't mean it is right to do it. Like with animals, out own desires are no excuse to skin animals for their fur.

Side: no

Not but for their meat yes because we need to eat.

If the animal is killed just for the fur then I don't think so. If we kill an animal we should use everything we can, i.e. using fur, leather, meat and the rest of it.

I think it's cruel to kill something that isn't any harm to you. If it's death serves a purpose (food), then that I can understand.

Killing an animal for fur is the same as killing a person for their skin. It is practically inhumane to do that

Go gave us dominion over the animals. But I do not believe that means we should starve, beat, and torture animals, we should be gentile in killing them, and not go around beating them because we can. But I do believe that it is okay to kill animals for there fur, just do it more kindly.

Side: no
