Fur is the fine, soft body hair of non-human mammals. True fur is the fur of animals which consists of short ground hair[?] and long guard hair[?]. Fur has been an important clothing for humans, especially in cold countries. Today, wearing fur is often criticized, for the sometimes cruel conditions under which the animals are held on fur farms[?].
