Same here. I love all types of foxes, but particularly the snow/Arctic ones.

Aww, I've only ever seen some of those in wildlife parks. Much better to see them in their natural habitat.

We get quite a few red foxes round our way, as well as deer, but I've NEVER seen a live Arctic fox anywhere. So beautiful.

    I can understand the allure of wearing such beautiful fur, but wouldn't do it.

    This's one of those subjects which I can see both sides to.

    Fur looks best on the animal it came from. There's no need to kill for fashion these days, and I hate the thought of it, BUT - indigenous people use the skins (and everything else) from animals in their areas, and tbh, I have no qualms with that. They don't do it out of cruelty, but necessity and as a way of life.

    No man-made fur can emulate the beauty of the real stuff, which's also warmer and looks better, but to wear it to show off's a sick idea. It's bad enough killing animals which're going to be extinct soon, but even fur from rabbits seems cruel to me, if they're bred simply for that purpose.
