We have a man here in central IL. That owned an upscale retail fur store. He 
retired from that and is now raising emus for their hides to tan and make 
into fashions. Not sure what he does with the meat. Just read the one article 
in my local paper about him and have not seen anything else. My husband was 
glad he closed his shop because he is not a fan of people wearing cute cuddly 
little animals on their bodies.
Not necessarily my opinion but I think everyone is entitled to their say.
