    I support fur trapping. Even though I believe (know) every living creature has some stage of emotions and thought, it is just part of a planets natural ecosystem to have advanced species utilize every part of a less advanced species it is able to consume.

    We as humans would not be where we are today if we couldn't figure out how to use fur as blankets, teepees, clothing, etc

    But I would support FARMING of kangaroos - for the reason that they are far far far more "envionmentally freindly" than cattle. The leather is stonger per weight and the meat is the lowest cholesterol meat in the world.

    No, because then you could legislate leather.

    Well, this particular legislation wouldn't.

    seeks to outlaw the production, processing, import, export and sale of fur from all animal species not already part of the meat industry.

    Re: Ban on furs

    A buddy and I ran a trap line in Nebraska throughout our high school years. We were licensed and obeyed all of the trapping rules. We started with leg hold traps but soon exchanged them for 'killer' traps (2 squares of steel rod that snap closed on the animal's neck) as they are much more humane and you don't get trapped animals chewing off their leg to free themselves. We started out skinning, salting, stretching, and drying the pelts, but soon found out that it payed almost as much to bring in the whole animal carcasses.

    Muskrats were our biggest seller, followed by rabbits. Never caught a mink. They are much too wily to fall for a trap. We did get one red fox. I still have a fond memory of getting up at 4:00a to go out into the snow to check the traps before school. Threw away many gloves that had to handle skunk sprayed traps.

    Yep, as the little 'ol left wing fur trapper, I would be against a ban on fur. Fur coats are for the most part out of style these days. When I was in high school, rabbit coats were the big thing for the girls to wear. They were everywhere you looked.

    No.

    For non threatened animals, it's dumb and wasteful.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No I would not support it because I think this is a very minor issue and not one worth caring about.

    its a step in that direction and if you don't like the end goal don't support major steps towards the goal.

    Re: Ban on furs

    I don't support killing animals simply for fur but I don't see a need to ban people from wearing it. The only requirements I'd have for wearing fur would be that the animals not be endangered and that the fur be obtained through humane means.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
