Grim Reaper Protests Fur

Written by PETA | September 30, 2007

A gaggle of grim reapers made an appearance at Milan Fashion Week Thursday. The dramatic demonstration reminded attendees of the reality of real fur—it’s dead.

Great job PETA Europe!

    Ana You should probably steer clear of criticizing propaganda. PETA is the modern queen of propaganda. Have you seen the “your mommydaddy kills” garbage. Classic. It’s only propaganda if you don’t agree with it huh? It’s kind of like it’s only a war crime if you lose the war. I think if we took a vote PETA would be qualified as propagandists. I know you don’t address my posts anymore but I wish you all the best. Don’t forget to take your supplements!!

  • Christopher Cochran MD says:

    This might make Ms. Ditsy Von Nobody mad…She seems to have a thing for fur.

    Hi Judith Sounds like sales are brisk. There are a couple of interviews with producer Shannon Keith at You might be able to view the film on the internet but of course it’s money well spent to support this kind of filmmaking. Shannon is certainly one of my heroes.

  • rojo says:

    speaking of guide dogs is it fallacy that peta objects to the use of dogs in such circumstances.

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Marq Let me guess. After the animals were “put” on earth you were given “dominion” over them. Well I asked the 10 billion or so animals put to death in the US last year for food and not one of them said they were put on earth for you. Sorry. Carla You’re most welcome. It’s a very inspiring documentary.

  • Judith, Freedom Fighter says:

    Mike The are all out of the DVD’s. I will check back in 2 weeks. I have read many books on this subject. The Bushies call them terrorists I call these blessed people Freedom Fighters that why I took the name. They are special people.

    “Animals were put on this earth to be killed and ate. And thats the way it is.” per marq 100207 According to that “logic” I gather blind people would prefer to eat their guide dogs canine law officers would rather have their drugsniffing dogs for lunch and canine rescue crews would rather have their dogs for dinner instead of having them rescue people. I gather that people in nursing homes would rather eat the litte resident animals instead of being delighted by them. And I gather that cows pigs chickens etc. enjoy the pain of being tortured cramped into cages and pens prior to being mercilessly slaughtered and willingly look forward to being on the menu rather than living. Gosh! If it weren’t for animals being put on this earth we would all starve to death! Yet somehow us “veggies” are surviving without meat.

    Thankyou Mike Quinoa!

    This is a most wonderfull job I ever seen !!! THANK YOU

  • Ana says:

    marq No actually many of us are highly intelligent sensitive compassionate and erudite people. The other animals were not put on this earth to be eaten that is religious cultural and capitalist propaganda. We are intelligent and compassionate enough to decipher that stupidity and recognize the sentience and value of every creature. Perhaps you should spend time with a colony of cannibals and that might persuade you to perceive the lives of the other animals differently.

  • marq says:

    Are you people stupid? Animals were put on this earth to be killed and ate. And thats the way it is.

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Carla Go to to order Behind The Mask. Excellent DVD. Producer Shannon Keith is an animal rights lawyer and very gutsy lady. This is an essential addition to Earthlings.

  • Karli says:

    Keep up the good work Peta!!! you won me over !

  • john says:

    at least it keeps our heads warm

  • Marisela says:

    This is good. Especially in Milan Italy the capital of fashion and fur. They really need to know what happens to these animals before their fur turns into coats. AWESOME! I wish I was part of that.

  • Johnny says:

    That is just awesome! I work for Greenpeace but PETA has a very special place in my heart. I have a chinchilla who is the light of my world so you can imagine how much I HATE the fur industry. Keep up the amazing work you guys!!!

  • JC says:

    This is great a great campaign PETA!

  • Umberto Veltri says:

    if they wanna wear fur i want to wear human skin as a coat whats the difference…murder is murder whether its an animal or a human. ITS WRONG

  • Kimberly says:

    Bravee Bravee Bravee!

  • The Good Steve says:

    PETA Europe has raised the bar with this one! What a GREAT demo!

  • Maureen says:

    The Grim Reapers strike again!! I am speechless but who needs words with such powerful symbolism as this.

  • cfm says:

    Oooooh! Good protest! I like this one a lot. I think it’s the creepiest and most effective I have seen to date. Good job!!!

  • Carla says:

    One thing they can do next time is bring the video along! Does anyone know where I can get the tape Behind the Mask? It’s the one where they free the animals.

  • Susannah S says:

    Excellent demonstration! What could be more appropriate at a fashion event? Good for PETA.

  • jeff says:

    Kylie wears Python skin bags! What do you have to say about that?

  • Tracy Hyszko says:

    You should do that campaign all over the world knock some brains into peoples head fur is murder

  • Judith, Freedom Fighter says:

    WOW! These people are simply wonderful and very impressive. Great great job….. What a great idea..

  • Holly says:
