covering, or fleece, of sheep or of other
hairy mammals, such as goats and camels. - Animal skins and hides that have
been treated to preserve them and
make them suitable for use. Humanistic/Moralistic Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gas, and poison. - Fine, soft, hairy covering or coat of mammals - has been important to humankind
throughout history, chiefly for
warmth but also for decorative
and other purposes. Consists of 2 layers:

1. Ground hair (undercoat or down hair)
is the bottom layer consisting of wool hairs; its principal function is thermoregulation. 2. Guard hair - the top layer consisting of longer, nearly straight shafts of hair extending beyond
the layer; its principal function is to protect the underlying fur and skin and to shed rain or snow. guard hair of a tabby cat a picture of a wet fur FUR CLOTHING - thought to have been among the first materials used for clothing and bodily decoration. - [fur] made into coats, shawl, etc. Some animals used in fur manufacturing: fox,

"Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment." according to PETA FUR In the wildlife, steel-jaw traps that slam down on their legs, often cutting to the bone; Conibear traps, which crush their necks with 90 pounds of pressure per square inch; or water-set traps, makes an animal struggle for more than nine agonizing minutes before drowning. lambs are forced to endure a gruesome procedure called "mulesing," in which huge chunks of skin and flesh are cut from the animals' backsides, often without any painkillers. WOOL "The shearing shed must be one of the worst places in the world for cruelty to animals … I have seen shearers punch sheeps with their shears or their fists until the sheep's nose bled. I have seen sheep with half their faces shorn off …" LEATHER workers break cows' tails and rub chili peppers and tobacco into their eyes in order to force them to get up and walk after they collapse from exhaustion on the way to the slaughterhouse. BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE What does the bible say about animal cruelty? Genesis 3:21 - "Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them." Genesis 9:3 - "Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things." Exodus 21:28 - "If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit." God allows us to benefit from the animals.
Bible principles allow us to kill animals to provide food and clothing or to protect ourselves from harm.
