When she discovered it was one of many who would have a tragic end as someone’s coat or hat, she decided to do something about it. After that she rescued this sable becoming coat.
“Eventually, I learned that there was an opportunity to buy her out from a fur farm. She would have died there, so I decided to save the little fella.”
