|Not long ago, a month or so, I saw a video PETA had posted to the internet exposing the Chinese dog and cat fur trade. The video and images of unimaginable suffering is stillgiving me nightmares. While I'm no fan of PETA, the video was unedited and unsensationalized. It's brutality was very real and raw however. PETA ran this video to expose J Crew who they claim buys dog and cat pelts from China for their fashion gear. Now evertime I'm in a KMart, Mervyns, or similar store, when I see a fur-collared jacket on the rack, I shudder, wondering what helpless animal--rabbit, cat, dog...???--suffered at the hands of Chinese domestic animal fur traders so that we damn Yankees can cheaply wrap ourselves in fur.
Sorry to be so morose. But if you'd seen that video, you'd know where all this angst is coming from.
