(refutation of disagreement with 6. A.)
Refutation of claiming that animals are not avoidably harmed for fur:
- Animals who are trapped in the wild are pierced with a steel-jaw leghold trap of another kind of trap or snare which is very painful, and they are killed. Since these things are deemed harms in the case of human beings, it would be speciesist to deny that they are harms for other animals.
- Animals who are "fur-farmed" are confined to small cages and go mad with repetitive stereotypic behaviours, such as racing in endless circles, or back and forth, or biting or licking themselves. They are usually killed with gas, strangulation, neck-breaking, anal electrocution, or other crude methods. Anyone who denies that animals are avoidably harmed for fur speaks in ignorance.
