Fur Is ‘Tutu’ Cruel

Written by PETA | December 14, 2009

We’re going to need another tu to describe how adorable our tutu-cute dancing raccoon and fox were as they pliéd and pirouetted their ways into the hearts of balletgoers in Philadelphia:


Tutu Cruel


Joined by local PETA supporters, our furry friends urged Nutcracker attendees and the many delighted onlookers to shun fur and go faux this holiday season. And the lucky kids who passed by got awesome anti-fur stickers.

A classic ballet and a timeless message—it’s the perfect match. Bust out your classy moves for a compassionate cause by bringing our Tutu Cruel Campaign to a Nutcracker performance near you.

    I love animal mascots! They make you want to hug them and not wear them! It makes people think about how they are a loving feeling beautiful animals!

    I just barely viewed the chinese fur trade video and can now barely hold myself together. Before I saw this I knew fur was bad I thought animals were eunthasized and then skinned for coats which is still sick. After seeing this I know I’ll loose it if I see another fur coat again. On the flip side you guys are amazing for fighting for the silent! I am proud to donate to an amazing cause.

    Everytime I see an animal whom is used for it’s fur it makes me sick! Where I live I do not see many people wearing furs. I guess thats a good thing. Because if I did see someone wearing one I would beat the crap out of them!
