What a way to kill jobs. A mink ain't worth nothing if it can't be skinned. Kill the mink industry, put thousands out of work.
It's one thing to regulate the sale of product from endangered species, quite another to arbitrarily target an industry just because some people have their heads up their asses and want to control the lives of others. Those people should be told, in no uncertain terms, that if they want to end the fur trade all they have to do is buy the farms raising the fur animals, the companies treating the furs, and the companies sewing the furs into clothing. That's all they have to do.
What? You mean if they did that all that woudl happed is that someone else would start up a new fur company?
What a shame.
I guess the busy-body do gooders should just learn to Mind Their Own Business.
Hey dude I've been a taxidermist for 25 years now!
As usual you don't have a clue to what you're talking about blaming everything on the left. You'd be surprised how many democrats trap and hunt and are taxidermists like myself!
BTW folks those cute little mink are the closest thing there is to a vampire. They suck the fluids right out of their prey. And furthermore the farms are much crueler than trapping a wild animal and quickly dispatching it. At least the wild animal has some dignity before it's killed.

I thought most leather came from cattle. I also don't think horses are raised for their hide, are they? I believe in making use of all parts of animals that are killed for whatever reason. The horses go for dogfood or human consumption,and glue don't they? So of course, by all means use the hide.
I was a vegetarian for a while when I was young. I found I didn't like vegetarians/vegans much. Most in my opinion are mentally unstable. It's almost like a cult and I think they'd be much happier and healthier if they'd eat a steak once in a while. I eat tons of meat now. I refuse to eat veal because of how it is raised, however i wouldn't want it banned. Let the free market work.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Fresh green vegetables outside of the local growing season.
Motorized transport of any form.
More than one shirt, pair of pants, overcoat.
Shoes are luxurious.
So is underwear.
Televisions are, telescreens are not.
Medical supplies, medical care.
What do you want taxed again?
and sure lots of hunters vote dem-often union types who think that getting more money from dem policies is worth the price of voting for the party that is home to almost all the anti hunting and anti gun types.
But the fact remains, if somone wants to raise mink for fur and others want to buy it, I value the freedom of those HUMANS above the emotobabble of the animal rights whackos
