I remember years ago when these animals were used as decoration on coats and other items of apparel. Never appealed to me, but as a kid I was fascinated by this fashion statement.

Even if I'm assured that this fox died of natural causes, I don't know if I would buy anything and I absolutely love this kind of jewellry.

I couldn't wear something like this. Only looking at that poor little nose... no, that's not for me.

I'm not vegetarian, I'm not a rabid animal liberationist (though hate animal cruelty) but this truly makes me say "yuck!"
