2000 PEACOCK FEATHERS USED IN A DRESS – CHINA

Peacock_dress

Over 2000 peacock feathers were used to make this wedding dress, modelled at a wedding expo in China earlier this year. Meanwhile in India there are increasing incidents of the poisoning of peacocks. It’s illegal to kill the national bird, but not illegal to collect and export feathers. Will feather collectors patiently wait for feathers to drop, or will such excessive demand drive poaching?

Mr Mousavidehshikh as per usual, the Chinese (the scum of the earth) drive more animals to their deaths. Stupid country with so many stupid beliefs! Peacocks are so beautiful – this is sickening!

  1. While it’s a bit excessive…it’s quite a nice dress. If the bird dies of natural causes then why not use their feathers?
