It has once again upset me that a popular French television (France 2) channel has allowed someone to approve of mink farming. Her words were more or less ‘that’s what minks are for, aren’t they?’ Later in the programme she stated, (which came as no surprise after her view on minks) that she enjoyed the corrida!
I am ashamed to say that the French Minister for Culture and Communication in France, Frédéric Mitterrand, has proposed Corridas to be included as part of the French patrimony! Who among you would take a child to see the harassment and torture, before putting to death, of a bull?
Is there not enough misery already without creating more?
I will not mention how minks are put to death in such a way as to leave their fur intact. Suffice to say that the method is ignoble.
Please do not buy real fur of any kind. There are more than enough synthetic versions that are lovely as well as being warm. My mother’s orlon coat dating from 1956 is still agreeably soft and alluring! Unlike fur, it can be cleaned in a washing machine.
No animal should endure torture and certainly not for the pleasure of someone who pays for it, whether it be as the coat on their back or the arena before their eyes...
