One more demonstration alert, this one from the New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance (NJARA) who will be targeting the fur store Borche in Fort Lee, New Jersey. The sponsor will be the Caring Activists Against Fur. Just two weeks ago, Hearts for Animals demonstrated at this very same store.
To tell you frankly, I have never been inside a fur store. That's a blessing, I think. It must be like a morgue. An atmosphere of painful death must pervade in it, to see the remnants of what used to be beautiful animals displayed on hangers and windows. I mean, these stores sell the fur of dead animals. You can realize the monstrosity of the fur business by putting it in this very simple term. Dead animals are literally hanging on chrome racks with price tags attached to them. And for a sum of money, an animal's fur can become your fur. But, no. It never becomes YOUR fur because you don't grow any fur. You just bought the fur of a hapless animal whose fur was forcibly stripped from it. How sad is that?
