I read this article today that made me very sad and angry...And then I watched the video they had attached.
So turns out these poor animals end up on Ugg boots.
I knew before I watched the video I wouldn't like it. I knew I would likely either want to throw up or it would make me cry. I started watching it almost hiding behind my hands. I got about a minute in and then started to ball. And ball. And then some more.
I didn't make it through the whole video. Seeing one animal go through that was enough for me.
I read through the article looking for something, some sort of call to action and there was nothing.
I hate this.
There's really nothing I can do. I mean, yes, don't buy Uggs, but other then that? And I'm not really mad at the people that are doing it. To a degree yes because I don't get how someone can just turn off like that and skin an animal alive like that, but I'm more mad at us, and how we support it. We drive people to jobs like this. And I was thinking if this is the only way these people have to provide for their families what else are they going to do? They likely don't have enough money to shoot eat animal in the head before, but at least come up with something else! Some other alternative! Slit the throat? I know, gross and still horrible but better to a degree.
I'm not going to keep going about this, I'm really upset, but I wanted to share it with you none less.
