We must be cautious when making generalizations, because too often, something which is good in some cases may be harmful in others.One of the more frequent cases where this happens is in the killing of animals. In principle taking the life of an animal can be considered as a deplorable act, except because of the need to eat or other survival purposes such as obtaining clothes and shoes, skins for ornaments, etc … and killing animals for this purpose, it is unquestionably good or harmful? This dilemma must be approached from different points of view, first killing a living being is taking a life, and how much higher is the animal on scale, most it affects us,It is not the same as killing a dog than an insect.
But there is another angle to consider, is it cruel to have a leather wallet? Depends on the skin of which animal, and here not all animals are equally important. We are in an ecologically dynamic equilibrium in which there are very important interspecies relationships. For example sardines are eaten by penguins, they are eaten by seals which the orcas then eat. Therefore, to kill an animal one must ask: how does this affect the ecological balance and another important question: am I contributing to the extinction of a species that will perish from the Earth? Therefore, kill pets as can be cows, pigs, ecological significance is zero, pear irrelevant to life on earth in general, but with wild animals the consequences can be many:
Consider also the case of owls. Owls are being kill, and humans are not only contributing to the extinction of these species, whose individuals are becoming less numerous, but if they disappear this allows the proliferation of rats and other rodents, with dire consequences for agriculture. In Europe, the boars are still a serious problem, and it’s a result of the disappearance of the wolf. Possibly within a few years there will be no tigers or pandas, or lemurs in Madagascar, and many other species that our children or grandchildren will know only by drawings or photographs. Having a coat with fur of these animals is a serious environmental crime against the zoological wealth of this planet.
However, due to the imbalances already made, there are species proliferating so that they themselves are a problem against ecosystems in general, and reducing their number would be highly beneficial for the rest of the species. Within this group are emphasized, first the rat, which is altering ecosystems across five continents. Wild dogs or dingoes of Australia, the Boars in everywhere. Every year it is necessary to kill elephants, so they do not reproduce uncontrollably. In certain areas of the world, the lack of predators allows this, for example alligators are authentic pests, which could be reduced.
As we can show, is not the same case with every species. The skin of a domestic cow is not the same as the endangered tiger, or killing to avoid the overcrowding alligator, but in all cases it comes to ending a life.
So we should pay attention that the leather does not belong to a rare animal in danger of extinction.😉🐁🐀🐃🐯🐎🐓🐴🐇🐄🐮🐭🐹🐂🐱🐱🐈🐐🐑🐏🐤🐘🐗🐩🐼🐶🐖🐷🐕🐫🐪🐱🐐 😱😱
