  Leather is just as bad as fur!
Updated 25 February 2004, 09.38
Cows
Lots of people are against wearing fur, but they still wear leather.

Catriona tells us why she thinks it's wrong.

"What I don't understand is why people say to wear fur is wrong when at least half of them wear leather.

I don't wear leather or fur so I don't feel hypocritical in saying this, and I don't really see a difference between the two.

It's very easy for people to say that wearing fur is wrong because most of the time it doesn't affect them.

Leather and fur are the same

All I'm saying is people should understand the two are the same, both the animals are killed and skinned. Just because cows aren't cute and furry it doesn't mean they aren't alive.

I understand through personal experience that finding non-leather shoes and belts is difficult but it's not impossible. I should know - I have a very large shoe collection!

I'm just asking that people who disagree with wearing fur should really think deeper into how it affects them, and perhaps try to buy non-leather shoes in future."

Catriona, 13, Bolton
