Exotic leathers controversy

February 29, 2016

We do not address with people on this subject much. However, we feel that there may be some who would like to listen to the other side of the coin. In 2015; PETA has done an informal inquiry or investigation at a couple of alligator and nile crocodile farms in the USA and in Africa. 

Do you use any proteins or by-products that come from animals? Are animals violated, even when you collect dairy from cows? Is there a food-shortage problem that may have led to certain business practices? Wouldn't then additional protein sources like crocodile be great? This is an extremely open-ended question. Yes, we may all say that we consume in moderation and yes it is a personal choice we make. 

If one is concerned with the ecosystem and environment, one should ask him or herself whether if anything in their homes contain any synthetically made-products? Are they biodegradable? Are they good for the environment in the long run? Or is this an issue of an increase in population or over-population that results in increase in consumption? Do you live in a home built by constructors? Where is your home located? Do you use electricity at all (any construction in power generation will likely to affect the ecosystem)? If you stumbled across a wild predator, what would you do? 

What do our traditional markets stand for? What are the goals of our government bodies? Why do they keep stressing about growth and GDP? What activity exactly relates to the GDP? Part of the equation involves consumption. 

We note that leathers including crocodile and ostrich can be by-products of the meats harvested. Many societies today have restaurants serving these protein-sources as part of their menus.

Consumption and personal choices are exercised by different people for different reasons and motivations. 

We are all here to work together, and cooperate with each other to build a harmonious living.

Thank you.
