‘Pinocchio’ Sniffs Out AWI Liars

Written by PETA | September 4, 2009

Moms everywhere warn their children that if they lie, their noses will grow*, à la Pinocchio:


Yep, those are vegan lederhosen.


PETA Australia took that lesson to the next level when it sent one of its members to the headquarters of Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) to call out the trade group for reneging on its promise to stop mulesing (slicing flesh off lambs’ backsides) by 2010.

    This blog has revealed a significant amount of animal abuse in Australia. I used to think Aussie was generally animal friendly like England. I hope the people over there appreciate their majestic marine and terrestrial wildlife species.
