Fur, leather, food, soap, cosmetics. Just some of the many ways we use / abuse animals. I'm wondering how many PETA fanatics adopt cows, chickens, etc. Without a domestic market these animals would surely be on the endangered list. Perhaps we need these celebrities to purchase vast tracks of land where these animals can live in peace.....of course they'd have to find some way of "peacefully" keeping the predators at bay. I'm sure given the choice a domestic animal would prefer the slaughterhouse to wolves, coyotes, bears and of course vehicular traffic. In the wild, free world few animals die of "old Age". If they do live long enough to lose the use of their teeth, they are abandoned by the rest of their kind and "sacrificed" to the predators. Nature is wonderful, but by no means peaceful and humane.
I do totally agree with adopting pets as opposed to purchasing. All my pets have been already born and in need of a home. No puppy mills will ever benefit from a market benefitting from my demand.
Even my children are adopte****od deal of our problems stem from over population. Yet I don't see a lot being done about it. How about celebs sponsoring birth control for the poor? Cudos to those who choose to adopt.
Enough of my rambling, if you don't agree, I'm ok with that. We're all entitled to our opinions.
That's all very nice except you may have wanted to add to the ads "and hurt the Inuit". The Inuit do not hunt seals for huge commercial ventures but this type of thing by people who generally know nothing about the arctic or the Inuit, hurts them. Many communitesI have major food problems due the prices being high ( e.g. $8 for 2 litres of milk) and they rely on animals to survive. I am not sure what the difference is between using leather from a steer for shoes, pigskin from a pig, for footballs or seal skin for a wallet is. It is sad that people take up causes who have no idea of what the fiull implications of their actions are. The Inuit should be given an apology for this.
