Dear MoD, What Discussions?!

Written by PETA | March 12, 2008

Hey, everyone! You may remember my previous post about the bearskins investigation. Well, this has generated a ton of media coverage, which is excellent, but this article in particular really caught my eye.

A spokesperson from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) was quoted in the article as saying, “Some alternatives to real fur are already in use by the Royal Artillery and others, and we are in discussions with PETA to identify an improved fake fur.”

Wha?! If by discussions, they mean PETA Europe talking and the MoD isn’t listening, then yeah … I guess you could say there’ve been some awesome discussions.

Thanks, MoD, for pulling out the PR train on this one, but we know better! Click here to see the letter that PETA Europe sent to the MoD today, and don’t forget to take action on this issue!

Always,Christine <3

    I received a reply from the MoD last year after writing to complain about using bear fur. They said the same thing then as they are saying now including being in consultation with PETA. Definitely this spin at least isn’t going to work any more!

    There’s nothing more vile than a group falsely using a nonprofit’s name to make themselves look good!

    Well…thats how you know it was an awesome discussion right? I know I only ignore what people are saying when they are right and I am wrong….Silly MoD!
