    Probably because leather is just a bu product as people will also be eating the meat.

    Fur is just for fur.

    So fur would be ok if people ate the animal?

    I'm guessing they do already or use it to feed other animals.






    OP: maybe it's because cows/pigs aren't that soft and cuddly? :dontknow:

    Minks and foxes are not endangered, I don't think many people say that cheetah fur is ok to wear; saying all fur is bad because a tiny minority want endangered animal fur is a little silly. Maybe I want Polish bison leather so all leather is bad? Even if the people don't eat it they can use it for animal feed.

    I didnt say they were I was referring to other types. Mink and Fox then its more to d with the nature of fur farming.

    You just seem to want an argument. Gl with that.

    No worse than factory farming.

    You just seem to think it's wrong because they're soft and fluffy,

    Eating meat is not done for vanity in the majority of cases. Hide from the animals used in food production is tanned to make leather which would otherwise be wasted.

    Fur is from animals killed simply for aesthetics, vanity and ego.
