Fur – Wrapping Yourself in Death

Some fashion trends are not only ridiculous or even dangerous or fatal to some living beings. One of the most arguable issues in the beauty industry is wearing fur. Fur looks luxurious and nice on your shoulders but whether this coat is worth the damage which the production of this single item has caused to the world of fauna?

The facts speak for themselves. About 40 million of animals are killed per wear to satisfy the people’s demand for fur. Among the victims of fur industry are foxes, rabbits, seals, raccoons, beavers, polar foxes and so on, the list can be continued endlessly. Moreover, the way of killing these animals often present a torturous process as the manufactures do not want to damage precious fur. So, they strangle, beat, poison, electrocute or stomp the animals to death in order to provide people with opportunity to wear fur coats.

However, the movements of protest against wearing fur are developing with remarkable speed. There are special communities for the animal protection. Besides, more and more celebrities join this anti-fur movement which has made it really popular nowadays.

Among the celebrities who are against wearing fur are Charlize Theron, Pamela Anderson, Pink, Penelope Cruz, Eva Mendes and many others. These women show the example of being beautiful without wearing fur. For instance, the photo of Charlize Theron with a dog has appeared on some magazine’s cover with the words “If you wouldn’t wear your dog, please do not wear any fur”.

One of the most famous anti-fur organizations is PETA, which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. This community is famous for its actions of protest against wearing fur, which always attract public attention. For example, the action of PETA which was hold under the name “I’d Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur” has caused a huge publicity effect as lots of celebrities posed naked for this advertisement.
