Fox is open to Offers!

I am actually offering this fox as a softmount, It will be mounted tomorrow. I am simply selling this as a softmount to help pay rent! My Fathers Memorial kind of drained me of funds. ^^;

I was originally going to half size this fox but decided just maybe someone on here would find her cute. She will be mounted up with Dark Mahogany eyes. You can also get her made into a poseable. I have a few critters already preparing to be picked up so now would be a good chance at a Posable if you want.

NOTE: her missing leg is not done intentionally, foxes tend to pull the legs off of new borns while trying to remove them during birth when they get suck.

When I see these I think 'Poor thing' and then I see all the fox hunters and dogs here where I live and I think 'Meh, foxes are good decorations or pets' It's so pretty though! <3

what kind of fox is this?  is it one of those domesticated lines of foxes? I'm curious because of the odd markings

It is indeed a domesticated fox, called a white mark or White Face Gene.

This one is a human raised animal, so to answer your question, Yes this animal like any other farm animal was bred to be farmed for some form of profit, or else they wouldn't be farmed. Meat goes to dog food, fur goes to clothing, piss can be used as well.

Aside from the fur, everything else is also used. The meat is often send to zoos, animal food factories and shelters. The bones are used for paint. The poop goes to farms. Nothing is wasted.

The good fur farms support zoos by giving them the meat. Zoos support endangered species. So, in a way, you are helping endangered species by buying fur from western fur farms. Wouldn't recommend buying fur from China though.

Doesn't matter to me if nothing is wasted. The fact they are killed for cosmetic or aesthetic purposes is disturbing.

So the fact that it helps endangered species, as well as pets, doesn't matter? I assume you support the idea of endangered species, such as tigers and Komodo dragons, not going exstinct, yes? Then it is a bit hypocritical to be against one of the scources that helps preventing them from going exstinct.

Same for pet food factories and shelters. The animals there need to eat too. And seeing how the meat we eat is full of chemicalals they can't eat, they usually get animals that were hunted during legal hunting seasons, fur farms or farms that breed the same animals we eat for pet food.

By supporting western fur farms, you support endangered species and shelters. Are you against those?

hahahaha man your funny. fur has a use, just because you don't like how its used. doesn't mean its useless! you think bugs would like to be crushed up to make makeup and dye, or silk worms for their silk. Chickens for their feathers.  its ok to kill a big old ugly cow or horse because their not cute and fluffy like a little harmless fox.

I didn't deny it having a use. It's worthless use is cosmetic purposes. I love bugs but bugs don't have feelings. Their sole purpose for living is to survive and procreate. They don't have feelings. They have natural instincts. Also cows are used for food. Cheap food, might I add, for the really poor. They have a great purpose in this world. 

Fur does not however. Not since the caveman era at least. No human needs fur unless they live in the coldest parts of the world. How people can buy these things without guilt is beyond me. But hey at least it looks pretty....

-shrugs- Fur was pretty good when I lived in Russia, I paid around $120 for a coat, compared to standard $300(not the exact price because rubbles don't transfer into USD very well) for a normal everyday coat. Not all fur wearers wear fur for the purpose of vanity. I wore mine for warmth, nothing more nothing less. It was not glamorous, it was a simple coat made from an old coyote...if I remember correctly, but it doesn't matter. It wasn't for fashion that's the point. Not all people wear fur for the purpose of being published in Vogue. Though it would have been nice. ;P

Have you ever felt the companionship of a moth? They are the sweetest little things and yet people kill them for NO reason at all. (no, most moths will not eat your clothes!!)

Saying you don't like fur isn't gonna save it, sorry, it's already dead. Everything dies, yet you don't give a shit when you have to kill a spider because you don't deem it cute. Sorry to break it to you, no soul is worth more than the other. Sit down, hypocrite.

Why does leather (animal skin)  for a chair  have the ok? Because you can't see the fur and therefore you can justify it's no longer an animal?

Why are foxes any better than chickens just because they are stupid and inexpensive?? No animal should be considered better or worse based on cuteness and beauty.. that's just contradicting yourself.

These animals are well taken care and euthanized humanely.. At least we appreciate these animals.   it's better than animals that are abused in backyards by parents who give children pets and say "Learn responsibility" and then the kids are like "WTF IS THAT." And never feed them..

Appreciate their dead skin not the actual animal.  Being raised ultimately to solely be killed so someone can say, "ahh nice fur". What do people do with the fur anyway? Hang it up somewhere and look at once every other day or what.

I know this is like, an old comment, but.

For some it's not just so they can say "Ahh, nice fur"

People use it for different things. Some for Shamanistic practices, some just for the fur, etc. Some make mounts out of it, some do just hang the fur up on the wall. It depends with each individual. 

Some people appreciate the fur the animal provided, the spirit of the animal, and the life of the animal. Other's just want the fur.

Like Sinni said, at least they are taken care of well. (You can tell by how well the fur looks. If they were skinned alive/tortured/starved/etc. like how PeTA says they always are, it would never have nice fur and it would be a mean spirit to deal with.) These animals are probably taken better care of than most of the pets around the world.

 "These animals are probably taken better care of than most of the pets around the world." They were still killed in the end for something that they can easily go without. 

Also, in response to the quote above, I bet some slave masters didn't harm their slaves. Does that make it right?

Well, I've never personally dealt with a fur farm (Though own a good amount of furs myself that weren't from a farm), but I would much rather real fur than fake fur. 8) Fake fur is horrible for our environment. And at least I have a soul to connect with with real fur. <3 Plus, like Sinni said again, some fur farms (though not all, since there are always those ones.) give the meat for dog foods, and things like that. We can easily live without picking a pretty flower to give to someone or keep ourselves, which kills it, but we do it anyways. It's the Fur Farm's way of making a living, though. Like how farmers make their living with the land. How a business man makes his living in a business. My making a living is shoveling horse shit out of stalls each day. Even if you attempted to persuade some people out of buying from fur farms, there will always be other people to buy from them, and if they like the product, they will continue. Like it or not.

Some didn't. Some slave masters treated their slaves like family and not like slaves at all. So I don't know where you are going with that. 8) Next thing I know you will be comparing this to the Holocaust, lmao. <3 But in all seriousness, these animals are most likely treated like gods. Their life was most likely a good one. I don't buy from fur farms, but I would buy a fur that someone has, that they could of gotten from a fur farm, or from someone else that got it from a fur farm, so then that fur won't be wasted. So then that life, that life that the fur farm took, would not just be taken for the fur to be forgotten. But, I would love to have a farm of my own, not just for fur, but for food. I kind of want a little rabbit farm or something of the sorts, so then I personally know how well the rabbits are kept, and know nothing will go to waste. 8') Meat is getting super expensive!

I don't know where I was going with that, sorry about that. 8))

In the end, everything is dead. The time they depart is just different from others who will depart one day. We are all living things, plants and animals a like. Fur Farms might not be right, but they are here. And most (Like I say, there are always those bad apples in the business that create not-so-good-reputations for other businesses) treat their animals amazingly, so the animals have a great life before they depart.

I can't speak for their motives- I've never personally dealt with a fur farm . We get the fur second hand from that business.
I would rather have the fur be made into taxidermy to be loved that will actually  than a pair of gloves.  No one here is disrespectful to these animals. Even in death they are treated with care and respect. I understand if that isn't something you can understand or want to. Taxidermy is a fine line. But most of these animals are not  killed for this purpose.

Also if you are actually interested in conversation and learning a different viewpoint then you should read this =) Lots of good info.

The Big Argument
There has been controversy for a while now regarding animal welfare. Whether furs and taxidermy were acceptable or not and whether or not to should stand up against hunting. I want to put you in perspective of accepting both and why it is okay to.
Going Natural
While you may think you've done well keeping away from using animal products to help save the animals, you may not be all that is gold, many are in disguise.
Because it is recognizable in it's true form does not mean it doesn't exist anywhere else.
