British Columbia, Canada
I know this is not a new thing stripping birds and animals of their parts to sell, but not once have we had this problem in North Vancouver, in the over 30 years I lived here. The eagles are sacred to the indigenous peoples here on this shore, and have always been so respected. These people are feeling the pain of this series of killings. I sure would hate to think it turns out to be one of their own.
We have a large Chinatown here for the size of the city, and I don't even go there anymore at all because of what they sell in their herbal apothecaries relating to this very subject.
While I am at it and still so angry, I was too sick to go yesterday but we had a huge fur trading exhibition here in Vancouver, and talk about a city uproar! Now that was one huge protest. The fact that they rented them the space for that show in a fur-free city caused total outrage, and tons of protesters to take over the event. I haven't seen a fur coat or such in years here, but sure still see tons of leather shoes, purses, pants, jackets.
