Some claim organic fur from animals from regulated trappers and hunters. What about all the roadkill that happens on every highway in this country? It all gets picked up and goes into refuse, wasting all that fur. How about a cooperation between the road crews and clothing manufacturers? You'll have some permanent tire marks, but they are left there to let people know that this animal was killed accidentally, and not for the direct purpose of becoming one's rainment. Dingleberries could emphasize your commitment to the enjoyment of nature in all its raw glory. Remember to treat for fleas and ticks though, no need to get THAT authentic.

       Fashion stops for no one, nor does it care either. [fiddles with his dingleberries]. If dingleberries are in, that's it! there in!

       not a bad idea, but maybe should be in a category like *recyling* ...if there is one, now I'll have to go look. + bun for recyling.
yes a category - Public: Recyling

       You really do have a serious case of coprophilia, [twitch]. It's concerning, and a little nauseating.

       I see plenty of deer. The hide can be tanned and used if gotten in time. Skunk makes cute muffs and I have rescued porcupine quills to use in Native American style baskets that I make...so I have used road kill crafts, including hawk feathers and many feathers from other birds.

       Fashion is what it is. Maybe it would just be some kind of sick goth fashion.

       Is it possible for an animal to be run over organically?
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 22 2010
  

       A bamboo rickshaw, or a horse and cart ? Yes, probably.   

       But it probably only works for snails, tortoises, and particularly stupid hedgehogs.

       And drunks.

       //I see plenty of deer.//   

       Me too, but can you hit 'em before they run off the road?   

       //Is it possible for an animal to be run over organically?//   

       Yes. Run over them *before* they get off the road (organic), not *after* they get in the ditch ('all natural,' but not organic)...or maybe it's the other way around...

       hmm .. if I was a fur trader who needed a large supply of this organic fur, I'd build a big parking lot in this wilderness ... that way I'm technically in the "Run over them before they get off the road" category and it's all legit

       I pulled over to the side of the road after spotting a freshly killed albino kangaroo once, with this in mind. But having never gutted or skinned a large animal before, after a few minutes of dithering, I let it be and drove on.   

       I did meet a chap in Darwin with a nice line of drums made from roadkill buffalo skins and fallen logs.   

       Oh that's a [+] by the way.
