This song was inspired by the work of Mary-Alice Pollard, Cornwall's Voice For Animals, in UK. We are happy for it to be downloaded and shared to highlight the work of 'Musicians Against The Fur Trade'
Contrary to our knowledge of this subject, the fur trade is very much thriving in some parts of the world. A lucrative business is labelling real animal fur as 'fake' fur, and selling it as trinkets, fur trims and clothing, even as pet toys. As bad as this is, the worst part is that the animals, mainly dogs and cats, are often still alive when they are skinned. The animals are not killed humanely, they are not transported humanely, they are thrown around like rubbish before their deaths, in crates that hold up to 30 dogs or cats in the smallest of spaces. How can we stand aside and let this continue? Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills-McCartney have vowed to do all they can to stop this terrible trade. Please help by adding your name to the petition. Please lend your voices to the animals plight. Without those that care, these poor dogs and cats and captive wild animals are without hope.
Singers/songwriters/artists/musicians, we have a voice, and we can use it!
Hurting animals is surely the same as hurting people, hurting the planet. Let's hope we can change things for the better.
