Do you wear fur?

Even if you don't I beg you to watch the video on this site.
Rethink how you can in your day to day life reduce the suffering an animal feels.
I am not honest because I can't bear to watch the video anymore and am writing this instead. Who are we anyway?
Please don't buy fur. Then again what cruelty is more cruel? Killing a racoon dog for fur is worse than killing a goat for meat? Sure slaughter house methods are more humane thatn skinning alive but still.
How can you avoid hurting animals in EVERYWAY if at all you can?

I don't wear fur, but I do wear leather shoes. I think the leather for my shoes is made from cow hide.

The Straight answer to the question is -Killing the Racoon dog is Zillion times more cruel. You have trivialised the efforts of the documentary makers with this needless comparison. The other aspect mentioned in the video was how animals are kept while they are alive - a tortorous cage without freedom of movement- far cry from an average goat's carefree life roaming the woods and the village farm yards. You cannot avoid hurting animals in EVERY way while staying alive.
