    Actually, the way that minks, foxes, etc. are treated is pretty damn sickening.

    Fur farming - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. At least the suffering of baby seals is over relatively quickly. The suffering of animals on fur farms goes on and on.

    HMPH Well then, we need to push for "free range" fur farms. I see no reason to abuse an animal for months or even years prior to killing it. That's just ****ing evil.

    Or just ban the practice entirely as unnecessary and cruel. The people who are currently farming minks and foxes and rabbits can switch over to working to collect recycleables to make polarfleece.

    Again, I would not support a ban on mink farms. I believe in the free market.
    If the mink meat became popular, that would be a good thing in my opinion. However, the main purpose would still be it's fur, so I still wouldn't buy a mink coat. This is just my personal feelings and how I make choices with my own money.. We are still free to make choices in this country.
    Cattle are raised for meat. Cow hides are secondary and therefore I see nothing wrong with leather. I eat plenty of meat and hope that as much as possible of the animal is put to good use.

    More government control.
    Why not just let the market work? If people feel so stongly against mink farms, don't buy minks. Educate others about what you consider to be cruelty while we still have free speech. If sales drop, mink farmers and all those connected to the mink business will gradually have to come up with a new source of income. You just want an out right ban on something that will put lots of people directly into the unemployment line.

    P.S.I bet you're all for banning toys in Happy Meals too.

    Some injustices require action. This is one of them. These animals suffer horrifically, and the free market has not corrected the problem.

    No. I'm in favor of stupid fat people and their children self-destructing. We have too many stupid fat people already.

    We already have animal welfare laws in place. Just enforce what's on the books. Stop trying to put people out of work.

    What about smart fat people and their children?
    Are you saying only stupid fat people enjoy treating their kids to Happy Meals?
    Still, glad to hear you are not in favor of banning the toys to stupid fat kids.

    I already suggested alternative employment for them. Their line of work is cruel and evil.

    Yes.

    Good post and I agree. I see no compelling reason to sanction cruelty simply because a species is not endangered.
