Please remember we all are entitled to our opinions. If I choose to wear fur
I shall. If you throw paint on it I will file assault charges and seek
damages. I would also purchase another fur to replace it. Don't get me wrong
I don't encourage any one to bop baby seals in the head. You again have a
right to your opinion and so do I . I respect your opinion please respect
mine. And so You don't think I am a wasteful killer of Animals you should
know I have served on Regional Conservation Boards. Respectfully John Bundy
