Coming To A Fur Vest Near You: The Louisiana Swamp Rat?

There is and always has been a great debate over fur. PETA and rabid animal-lovers feel that real fur is wrong, and have been known to use a paint can or two to get their point across. On the other side, you have the Victoria Beckhams and Olsen twins of the world who love fur. The Telegraph is now reporting a resolution to the great debate: Louisiana swamp rats (not pictured above) which are “culled legally to protect marshland.” Designer Cree McGree is arguing that since 400,000 of them go to waste every year, using their fur is pretty much guilt-free (albeit pretty gross).

So, what do you think, should the rats not die in vain? What will PETA say? And most importantly, would you wear a swamp rat vest? Leave comments here.
