The animals that are legal, however, are shot and killed. They are then skinned and, depending on the quality of the fur, are shipped for money. Furs without a high quality are thrown away--a life wasted.
Most furs are shipped to cold Asian and European places (plus Canada) to be made into coats and hats. However, some go to designers, who snip and sew, and ultimately create a "fashionable" outfit. Models then show them off, some even covering it up with saying that it's faux fur.
Don't worry, animal lovers, as some are campaigning this too. FurIsDead.com and PETA hosted a parade of modelsin bras and undies carrying signs saying, "We'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur". Among them was Christy Turlington.
At the parade, PETA also held dead bodies of trapped animals with the heads still on and the fur skinned off, also holding signs saying "Here's The Rest Of Your Fur Coat".
As mentioned earlier, faux fur is the absolute solution. Though it does not feel exactly like the real things, it looks just like it. And what's a feel if you're just modeling? Just modeling animals who suffered to give you that "adorable" hat. Plus, according to activists at Barcelona's Naked Animal Protest, it takes about 90 animals to make one fur coat.

The only difference between trapped animals and our best friends is the way we treat them." Inspiring quotes come from inspiring people.
