No Fur in Fort Lauderdale

Written by PETA | February 26, 2007

Just in case you weren’t aware, you don’t need to be a professional activist to make furriers in your neighborhood wish to God that they could just crawl into a hole somewhere, or maybe pick any other profession. All you need are some signs, a few good friends, and an hour or so of free time. Anyway, here are a few great pictures that some folks in Fort Lauderdale sent me from a protest they held outside AA Martin’s Furs last week. Setting the animal issues aside for a moment, what the hell do you need a fur coat for in Florida?

According to Michael, who sent in these pics, the owners of the store asked them to call off the protest as they’d had a recent family crisis. Feel free to comment here, because I’ll admit that there’s the tiniest bit of a gray area: If your job involves paying people to raise animals in cages so small that many of them are insane by the time they’re anally electrocuted, do you deserve a little bit of slack from the people who are telling you to stop it if you’ve had a rough week?

    a family crisis like your dad was anally electrocuted and skinned alive? then i could understand. sorry they have the constitutional right to peacefully protest there. if it’s bad for business stop selling fur. i find the solution rather obvious

    There are some people in our society who have been consumed by greed and selfishness Another retail example

    Family crisis? What about all the animal families they have destroyed? Sounds like a little bit of karma to me. Karma will sneak up on a person like that.

  • Michele says:

    They want respect due to a family crisis? Do they not have a clue that the animals that have been tortured for these ridiculous coats are always in crisis?
