Unless you live in
a sensory deprivation chamber, you probably get queasy at the mere mention of Kim Kardashian. But wait! PETA's new billboard
should give the reality TV star a much-needed reality check—at least when it
comes to her furry
wardrobe, which often features the pelts of
animals as dead as her brief marriage.

We've contacted Kim
several times about the notorious cruelty of the fur industry,
in which animals on factory fur
are kept in tiny wire cages in all weather extremes and are genitally
electrocuted and even skinned
In fact, Kim's compassionate sister, Khloe Kardashian,
posed naked for a PETA anti-fur ad and kindly showed fur-farm video footage on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
But the hardest thing to keep up with is the number of carcasses that Kim
arresting billboard on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood will inspire the
entire Kardashian klan and other shoppers
to follow Khloe's example and leave fur off their holiday lists.
When Kim is ready
to put an end to her much-publicized relationship with fur, PETA will be happy
to take her discards and donate them to the homeless. She can even help us pass
them out! I'm sure there's an E! special in there somewhere.
You can get in on
the action, too—donate
your furs to PETA today.
NO ONE should EVER wear real fur pelts...NOT EVEN THE HOMELESS!!!!! An individuals economic status or whether the pelts were donated or purchased should not allow a "get out of jail free pass" for this unforgivable offense.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
