From Linda About Fur Labeling
Dec 15, 2008

Dear Sir,

Yesterday, I went to the newly opened "Dillards Store" in Ocala, Florida. I saw a very nice leather jacket, but, most of all, noticed the "Most beautiful, unusual "FUR" collar. I felt it. Knowing fur somewhat, I thought this fur was unusually different, yet extremely nice! I looked at the inside tag to see where this coat was made. It said, "CHINA."

HOW can I be sure this is NOT "Chinese Raccoon Dog Fur"!!??? The managers sure couldn't tell me anything, they do not know the origin of this fur!!!

I am VERY concerned about this matter, and hope to God, this chain of stores in the United States is NOT buying fur of these poor tortured animals.

Can you investigate??? How can I be sure the fur I buy is legal and not from these tortured animals?

Thank you,
Linda M. Ocala, Florida

Dear Linda:

Thank you for calling this matter to our attention.

There is really no easy way to determine the origin or accuracy of the labeling of animal products without doing expensive laboratory testing. The only way to be sure, is to not buy any clothing containing animal products, which includes leather, because those animals have also been abused, tortured, and killed.

And, the same thing goes for the things we put on our plates.

We hope this helps, and we look forward to hearing from you again

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
