Naked Demonstration in Thailand

Written by PETA | March 22, 2007

Former PETA intern Ashley just sent along these great pictures from her “All Animals Have the Same Parts” pro-vegetarian demonstration yesterday for PETA’s Asia Pacific affiliate.

It seems like the whole thing went over pretty damn well. The photographers in particular look really pleased with themselves for some reason. Anyway, I just wanted to give a shout-out to Ashley, who’s always willing to go that extra mile to help animals (e.g., “Hey Ashley, would you mind going to Thailand, getting naked, and painting yourself like cuts of meat to point out the absurdity of treating any living being like an object? Great, thanks.”). Ashley—you’re amazing. Check out the pics:

    If you truly cared about animals you wouldn’t work at a zoo. Zoos are awful places that take animals out of their wild natural habitats and exploit them for human entertainment. What about a vetrinarian or something that helps animals lead better lives instead of taking care of them while their lives slowly become meaningless to them and they become depressed and neurotic until they die because they weren’t meant for zoos? I have no doubt you have good intentions I think you just need to educate yourself a little more on what happens to animals and why you shouldn’t support some place like that.

    I am not a member of PETA as of yet but I did want to some how get this information about the white tiger posted on this website and hopefully if I post it in this blog it will gain some attention and PETA can acknowledge the following as a serious problem and start campaigning for help on the issue. The White Tiger Most people love animals especially exotic wildlife from other parts of the world that some of us can only hope to see displayed at zoos or view on television via channels like Animal Planet and National Geographic. I myself am an avid animal loverstill deciding whether I should be a teacher or work at a zoo and possess great compassion and respect for the wonderful creatures that we share our planet with. One particular animal that I have always been intrigued by is the “white tiger.” I’m sure if you’re reading this you would agree that tigers in general are some of the most beautiful members of the genus felidae or the “cat family” but the white ones are exceptionally enchanting to gaze upon. While searching on the web for information about that particular subspecies of tiger I made a shocking discovery. The white tiger is not a subspecies of tiger at all.The absence of color in their fur is actually a defect due to a mutation in the genes of the bengal tiger that is very rare and actually almost nonexistant in the wild. The defect is not albinism however if you think of the concept of albinism in humans or animals such as the famed Burmese Albino Python then that will constitute a clearer understanding of what creates a white tiger. Now if the white tiger is not a subspecies of tiger then what’s so shocking about that? Well every white tiger that you see on t.v. at a circus or zoo comes from one common ancestor only. That means they are products of inbreeding or incest as it is called when referring to humans. A male “siberian white tiger” or “bengal white tiger” must be bred with his own daughter sister or even granddaughter for there to be an optimized chance of producing more white tigers because the gene for that defect is doublerecessive. As you can imagine this inbreeding results in many birth abnormalities that are harmful to the tigers’ health and the young born with those abnormalitiessuch as crossedeyes distorted facial features and scoliosis are often unwanted by breeders and even die if the cases are severe. Please help end this cruelty to the majestic tiger by viewing the clip below and reading more about the white tiger. Make a free account on that website so you can vote YES to having that clip probably shown as an entire documentary presented on t.v. to educate people on the terrible acts that must occur to “generate” these beautiful tigers. Thank you very much. Natalie Gomez video clip httpwww.current.tvwatch20895370 Further reading httpwww.current.tvwatch20895370
