Maine’s Fur-Free First Lady Puts Animals First

Written by PETA | February 11, 2010

Maine might be known for its harsh winters, but you’ll never catch first lady Karen Baldacci wearing a real fur coat, no matter how far the mercury drops. PETA recently sent surveys to first ladies across the country asking whether they’ve joined Michelle Obama and France’s Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in shunning fur, and Baldacci was the first to respond, stating, “I am an animal lover. Absolutely no fur. I do own faux [fur] but don’t wear it often.” She added, “[PETA] is a wonderful organization.”

For her refusal to support an industry that profits off the anal and vaginal electrocution of dogs, cats, foxes, minks, and rabbits, we’re sending Baldacci a box of vegan chocolates donated by Maine’s own Harbor Candy Shop.
