To the editor of THE EAGLE:

The Dec. 21 letter "Wearing fur: Compassion vs. cruelty" was very well-stated by Ms. Bosma. Such a well-written letter from another caring person who has such compassion for all kinds of wildlife.

Why should any animal be killed to make us happy? I don’t think people have any idea of how many millions of these helpless, innocent animals are killed each year either for food, or in this case, fur. If, by chance, the tables were turned, how would we feel about being scalped by them? We wouldn’t like it at all.

So on this holiday season, if you didn’t receive the fur you wanted don’t be upset, be thankful and think about that animal you saved.
