Because We Must...

Because we must--.

Journal Entry by Jason Miller


Alaskan Fur, an affluent retailer in Overland Park, KS, sucks its bloody lucre from the teat of a barbaric fur industry that slaughters over 40 million animals for human vanity every year. My allies with Bite Club of KC and I protested their reprehensible existence today. It was 12 degrees Fahrenheit, but our passion to defend nonhuman animals still burned hot.

Watch the videos below to understand why we defied common sense by protesting for over an hour in dangerously cold weather and to recognize why Alaskan Fur is a moral abomination that needs to go, as it profits from the abject suffering, misery and murder of sentient beings:

'Fur Is Worn by Beautiful Animals and Ugly People'

'Wear your own skin and let an animal keep theirs'--

'Be comfortable in your own skin--.don't wear fur.'

�If you wouldn�t wear your dog, don�t wear any fur.�

(The above slogans were used in PETA anti-fur campaigns)

Be sure to call, fax, email, or visit Alaskan Fur (at either or both of their locations). Tell them to shutter their store and find a way to make money that doesn't necessitate the torture and slaughter of innocents!

And finally, if you insist upon buying a fur coat, don't waste the corpses of the animals who died so that you could wear their skin. Wear them as an accessory!

Watch the video at and go vegan. Do it for your health, for nonhuman animals and for the Earth!
