The ladies of the Lingerie Football League are part of the NFL (No Fur League), and they want to make sure that everyone gets drafted. The BC Angels are the latest team to join PETA's anti-fur campaign, asking Vancouver to "tackle cruelty: bench fur."
The gals had a ball tossing around the faux pigskin and talking to holiday shoppers about how fur is a personal foul.
And when a woman in a ridiculous fur hat got snippy with them, the classy lassies snapped right back, politely telling her that while they may choose to take a beating on the field, animals who are killed for their fur would definitely choose not to be beaten, electrocuted, or skinned alive.
Help intercept the cruel fur industry by telling bebe that you won't be buying until it takes fur out of the game.

Eye blacks with garters? Why not?
Fur? What, are you crazy?
The Lingerie Football League's
took to the streets yesterday to call "foul" on fur.

The ladies braved the
chilly temps to show Torontonians that football players can take a beating, but
that furry animals

shoppers steered clear of fur.

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.
