This item comes from an era when it was OK to wear bits of dead animal as a fashion statement.
It belonged to an aunt, long since dead, as is the fox who the fur originally belonged to.
I swear I have never worn it. It has been at the back of a drawer as an embarrassment to me.
What to do with such a dreadful thing?
This project has given me the answer - I will take it up the woods and bury it in the soil where all dead foxes should end up.
An excellent idea for the Project, and now the fox can finally have the natural end to his life by being taken back to the woods.
Great post, another idea is to donate it to a local zoo or school system as an educational item, I found a bear skin at a garage sale and brought it to the zoo. It seemed more fitting to me than having it end up on some floor.
This has prompted me to remember being repulsed as a small child by a fox stole that my mum had - with the whole body, head, feet that dangled down and tail draped round her shoulders. I grew up to be an animal lover and a vegetarian and apalled by how fur is obtained from foxes and other animals including seals.
