...is not the same as the death of a human. I'm speaking for ranch foxes, per say. Not more intelligent creatures like elephants or monkeys. 

There are a lot of issues going around right now regarding anti-fur people. Anti-fur people, let me explain to you why it is not morally wrong to kill a ranch fox.

Wait, let me establish that killing is a fact of life. Everyone has killed something in some way or another, no matter what age. Anything with a life can be killed, whether it be a bug (which we ALL know we have killed at one point in our lives), or a human being. If you squash a bug, you just murdered something--took away its life. Even though it doesn't have the brain capacity to understand that it's about to die--like foxes, which we kill, too.

Anti-fur people tend to over-dramatize the death of a ranch animal. Here's the thing: Animals like foxes don't realize they're about to die. Which makes the experience of its death--for it--not a scary thing. It's not going to panic, bow down on its furry knees, and beg for its life to be spared. It's not going to ask that you spare its friend in exchange for its own life.

If we were to ranch humans, on the other hand, for whatever reason, they would KNOW they're about to die because our brains are developed enough to know this. That's what makes it morally wrong to kill a human in whatever freak situation where they are about to die and are aware of who their killer is. It would be terrifying to a human to know they're about to die--they would be SCARED. 

Animals like foxes will never know that fear because they don't understand death, how death occurs, why it's going to happen, or even when it's going to happen.

Must.ask.right.now.

Do you know where I can get a nice mountable calico, or SunGlow pelt?

I was told you are the person to go to for this stuff. :iconmhmmplz:

Oh my god, that icon. XD

Unfortunately, the main guy who sold calicos is now out of commission (aka he stopped selling). It's going to be extremely difficult to find a calico that's even mountable.

I'd suggest stalking Hide and Fur (despite their obnoxious prices, they sometimes put in odd pelts like a calico into their Miscellaneous or Mutation section of fox pelts) and Taxidermy.net. Those two are your best bets for calico foxes, even if they aren't mountable (it's actually easier to find a legless one and buy some matching legs, than to find a complete pelt. xD). 

Also, if you're not interested in frozen carcasses, start getting interested in them, because that's often how calicos come and go. The seller isn't going to skin it most likely because it will always sell higher to a taxidermist who can do it themselves, so that it's mountable.

For a Sunglow, again, Hide and Fur and Taxidermy.net. You don't have to look as hard for a frozen carcass, but more often than not that's how they're sold. Also keep an eye out on deviantART. A lot of people have marbles here, and sometimes I've seen some people selling mountable ones. 

And as always, eBay and etsy are fair game with mountable pelts, though I've never seen a mountable calico on either. A sunglow, yes. Never seen a frozen carcass for either fox on either site, though. 

Keep an eye out for this guy on eBay: www.ebay.com/usr/sengseal His prices are retardedly high, but on very rare occasions he'll have mountable sun glows on hand. He also has a bunch of other nice colors to look at, though I don't recall seeing any calicos ever. 

I don't have either of those colors of foxes because my breeder does not breed Marbles or calicos. xD So I wouldn't be able to sell you it unless I went to a local auction or something.
