"Veganism is not about vegans. Vegans are people with all sorts of good and bad points. But that says nothing about veganism. Vegans are often the messengers of veganism, but don’t confuse the two. Veganism is the understanding that animals value their own lives and bodies, that animals have an interest in continuing their existence and avoiding suffering and that animals have the right to be treated with respect and justice and not to be treated as property. The logic of veganism stands independent of any individual vegan person."

It depends on the style and size of the garment but here is a guide to the number of animals that suffer and die for ‘fashion’:Mink 30-70, Rabbit 30-40, Fox 10-20, Chinchilla 30-200, Seal 6-10, Lynx 8-12, Badger 10-12, Otter 10-16, Dog/Cat 15-20, Bobcat 16-22, Raccoon 30-40, Marten 50-60, Sable 60-70, Squirrel 200-400
And more animals die for fur trim. Fur trim isn’t the ‘leftovers’ from making full length fur coats. It may be only a little fur, but it still represents the painful existence of the animal that died for it.
And let’s NOT forget that leather kills too.

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:

Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.

    Way to go, humanity.

what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it

I literally cannot express the pain I am feeling right now.

They were declared extinct in 2011. And African elephants are well on their way to the same fate.
Absolutely sickening. I will never understand why more people don’t care. Fuck.

So glad trophy hunting “helped”.

How to distort and pervert the meaning of a word in the most disgusting way.

This makes my blood boil.

Wow, so this is the definition of being compassionate, eh? Whatever.

Is this a joke or?

You realize that there is this thing called supply and demand. There is a demand for meat so they provide the supply. By stating that they have compassion for their animals it means they were most likely not grown in a cage, they were probably free roaming before they were used for their meat. 
There are always going to be carnivore’s you will never convert every person to vegan/vegetarian. So if people are going to eat meat wouldn’t you prefer that the animal actually be allowed to have a life and be cage free before it gets used to supply sustenance for those of us that do eat meat. 

By stating that they have compassion for “their” animals it means that they exploit animals following certain standards that they consider less exploitative (which is complete bullshit) in order for the public to have a clear conscience while they indulge in the exploitation of said animals.
I’m glad you’re familiar with the concept of supply and demand. Do you know what would happen if every person who says “there will always be a demand for meat and other animal products so I’ll continue to eat and use them” (and trust me, there’s a whole lot) stopped eating, using and commodifying animals? Supply would decrease. But what’s more important, these people would have an effect on other people, and we’d have a pretty large portion of the population questioning the old belief that the rest of the animal kingdom exists for our own benefit and that we have any right to their lives and bodies. 
Why doesn’t this happen? Because it’s really easy to conform to the norm. Because it’s so convenient. Because we tell ourselves that bigger cages are the solution and that nothing we can do will change anything. Because we’re selfish, speciesist fucks.
Stop considering them food and accessories. They’re not.
