Re: [BKARTS] Book Skins

Yessss. The deer are almost like big rats. They eat it all, they don't share, and they leave big piles of stuff for your dog to eat.

I'm not particularly sentimental about using animal hides for various purposes. I am concerned about the care and husbandry given to the animals.

am closer in spirit to the plants than the deer that eat them.
