It’s tough to underestimate the stupidity of the public, but it’s a trick the European Fur Breeders Association has managed to accomplish. They’ve just released a video comparing fur animals to farmed animals, and they’d have us believe that these animals couldn’t be happier being ground up into meat, or made into jackets for “smart ladies in nice places.”
Here’s an industry that is completely out of touch with mainstream public opinion. They’d be a lot better off refusing to comment on animal use issues than to release something like this. It’s only a minute, so go watch it—it’s worse than you could possibly imagine. (Thanks, Paul.) Link.
