Fur Foes on the Front Lines

Written by PETA | December 9, 2008

As we reported last week, now is the time of year when we on the anti-cruelty side of things need to step up our fight against ugly, ugly fur. It’s cold outside and we’re at the height of the shopping season—and what goes along with cold, conspicuous consumption, and callowness? Fur buyers, natch!

So we’ve been stepping up our protests—as you may have noticed—and one of the latest demos featured a caged PETA member in downtown St. Louis. Her presence reminded shoppers that fur does not come from the Fur-Coat-Tree Forest in Magical Ignorance Land.* Fur comes from caged-’til-they’re-insane animals on farms and trapped-’til-they’re- stomped-on animals in the wild—and we’re not going to let consumers forget it.

You can check out photos of the demo below—and don’t forget our tips on how to be the best fur fighter you can be.

*Not to be confused with Imaginationland, where those who skin animals alive would surely live on the bad side of the barrier. Too bad furriers are real.
