At Los Angeles' Comikaze Expo, attendees can mingle with the likes of Mark Hamill, Stan Lee, and Elvira; get their favorite comics, games, anime, and cult videos autographed; or even get tattooed. But one thing that is definitely off limits at the L.A. Convention Center this weekend? Fur.
Comikaze will have thrills and chills aplenty, but the real-life horror of animals who were beaten, electrocuted, and skinned alive to be turned into jackets is too cruel for even the most seasoned scream queens. When the folks who created and starred in Halloween, Saw, and Friday the 13th are welcome but fur is too scary to let in the door, you know fur production is a truly terrifying business.
Halloween is over, but you can still share PETA's very real horror movie—featuring undercover footage shot on rabbit fur farms in France and China—with your Facebook friends and ask them to support only killing sprees of the celluloid variety.

Highness of Halloween, Elvira, knows a
thing or two about fright. And there are few things that she finds as
terrifying as imprisoning
marine mammals in an aquarium and forcing them to
endure pounding music reverberating through their cramped tanks. But that's
just what the ghouls at the Georgia
Aquarium plan to do this
aquarium is apparently ignoring the complaint that PETA filed after the facility
hosted a recent event with loud music that was visibly distressing to the
marine animals, who are very sensitive to excessive noise. Elvira penned a
letter to the aquarium's president and COO, saying:
aquarium employees said that many of the confined wild animals become
aggravated and even fight when the music gets pumping—and they have no safe
room to escape to. This disturbs me more than Freddy vs. Jason."
the Mistress of the Dark will help the aquarium see the light.

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.
