Are there other uses for fur bearing animals that are being missed?

i'm not sure.

i suppose there's no contractiction between wearing leather and eating meat.

but it seems like fur is simply a more wanton destruction of an animal.

There are definitely groups of people, like the Inuit, for example, who make much better use of the entire animal and don't kill them solely for the fur.

Of course. Besides, they can't use really anything else than animal skins if they still live the tradictionnal way, like some of them. But in today's society, it's not a need.

Not a need, just a better material and product. I like animal, I have a goatskin jacket - I might spring for horse at some point.

Animal hides are good, don't want it don't buy it, leave the rest of us out of your crusade.
