It is sad & unfortunate but I do have a real Leopard coat that Ithink comes down just below the waist. My mother bought it at a thrift shop or
something (she used to be an antique dealer) who knows but it cost ONLY $15...how sick is that? Then in ~ 1987 I saw my 1st PETA commercial on TV in
Los Angeles, CA...it was filmed on a Run Way in black & white with all these models walking out to the end & doing heir twirl so to say.
Well here comes this one model in a long Leopard Coat maybe 3/4 length, the place is packed with photographers, all the flashes going off...as she
spins (remember B&W film) Red Blood is flying out beneath the coat & splattering everyone every where clothes & faces....I couldn't believe it. Well
guess that didn't go over very well cause I never saw the commercial again.
I have never worn my coat but I have different thoughts on he matter...I think it is wrong to kill for fur unless absolutely necessary for
survival....on the other hand you have the beautiful animal who was killed just for
"Upper Class" reasons & by not wearing the coat it's life is made even less worthy because it's fine qualities are not being used. So for me
personally I have been fortunate to work with many species of animals & those that I had personal relationships with that have passed on I collected
something personal for us both, like some mane from an African Lion & etc. I have a treasure chest of collections & instead of wearing the coat, I
hopefully will be able to have a great artist help me design a piece of art work
entailing all my friends together with possibly the fur from the coat as the background. I don't want the Leopards life just go to waste nor do I
want to wear something to promote the evil side.
