EXPLORES FUR FARMING IN DENMARK
I still am against wearing fur. It goes to my ideology that humans must rethink their whole concept of how they traditionally have treated animals. An excerpt of my opinion from an earlier blog:
"A new breed of human must emerge out of the greater understanding that indisputably exists about how animals truly "feel" and how they experience a wide range of emotions and pain. Their experiences are as important to them as ours are to us. Their wants in life are much the same as ours. They want food, shelter, good health and happiness. They don't want to be hit, hurt, injured, used and abused. But without an immediate paradigm shift in the way humans regard them, animals needlessly and shamefully suffer unimaginably egregious pain at the hands of their human handlers and guardians. Human ignorance and greed must begin to spur outrage and ultimately be wholly unacceptable by the masses."
I don't think animals should be killed for food or fur. I grew up eating elk and deer meat every year. My father was an avid hunter and I helped pack out the meat after his successful hunts. He cleaned and packaged his own animals. I was raised to fly fish from the time I was three. I had my own fly rod at the age of 5. I've been on both sides of the issue, and what feels right to me now is being vegetarian and heading toward being a vegan. To me, it feels healthy in mind, body and soul. I try not being too radical in my blogs because that doesn't serve a good purpose. Who wants to hear anyone rant? People need to be introduced to new ways of thinking, and of living, at a pace that is doable and one that resonates with them. I hope to plant seeds of thought for bringing the kind of change I think will make all life happier on this planet.
