holiday shoppers needed divine intervention to persuade them to keep animal
skins off their lists, that's exactly what they got. A saintly duo of PETA "angels"
has been crisscrossing Canada in cherubic attire to help people in the frozen
north be angelic to animals this winter by eschewing fur, leather, wool, down, and exotic skins.
while crowds of pedestrians were stopping to take pictures of the holy
encounter and offering to buy the angels some hot tea, the dreamy pair was busy
explaining that torturing
and killing animals for their skin is an unholy nightmare.
angels are hopeful that people will show good will toward animals this holiday
season so that this year, every time a bell rings, an angel will get her wings
and animals will keep their skin.

might expect to see gloomy angels descend to Earth during the end times, but
yesterday in Oakland, California, two PETA angels were all smiles as they
offered passersby a sweet treat ahead of California resident Harold Camping's predicted apocalypse.
It was a flurry of halos, wings, and lingerie as our angels for animals handed out vegan cookies
and nearly 500 vegetarian/vegan
addition to providing delicious vegan victuals to help make the eve of the rapture
as pleasant as possible, the angels reminded passersby that
eating animal products supports hell on Earth for animals. Pigs, cows, and chickens are raised in cramped,
filthy conditions before being crammed onto trucks and dumped at
slaughterhouses where they suffer slow, agonizing deaths as they are hung
upside down by their legs and have their throats cut while still
make your last supper
before the world ends a compassionate one, check out PETA's vegetarian/vegan starter kit. As one passing admirer
said about our angels, "Vegan—is that what they are? I want to do that!"

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.
