Only animals should wear furs.: Stop killing foxes for their fur

Foxes play an important ecological role, as they "clean" the environment, and their survival often depends upon the amount of available food in their territories. They bury food and have a very good sense of hearing, picking up sounds of small animals in the grass, underground, or under the snow.
Unfortunately, many young foxes are raised on factory farms in tiny, filthy wire cages. Many of these foxes live for years in hideous conditions before farmers kill them and sell their fur to make coats, cuffs, collars, and trim. Others are caught in steel-jaw traps, which crush their legs until trappers arrive to beat them to death hours or days later. In many parts of the country, frantic foxes are pursued by starved hunting dogs for "sport." Once the dogs catch up to them, they tear the terrified foxes limb from limb.

      Instead of trying to be responsible for all the problems in the world, we should take on what we love and care about. Then we honor both our inner world and the outer world at the same time. There’s no separation between the two, and there is no hesitation, no self-doubt. This will help us develop great faith that others are taking care of their piece. People who don’t know the details about climate change may care deeply about the forests, the animals, and the children. It is very important that we share, not only our merit, but also the responsibilities. Somehow we have to relieve ourselves of the enormity, which is so debilitating.

      Füchse liegen mir sehr am Herzen, und nicht nur weil ich ihren Namen trage. Sie inspirieren mich, sind unglaublich schön und faszinierend und auf keinen Fall lasse ich zu, wie sie für Pelzmäntel gequält werden.
