St. Louis, Mo. -- Sweltering in full-length fur coats, PETA members will endure the summer heat
as they confine themselves to small cages outside The Fur & Leather Gallery
on Friday. They will hold signs reading, "Summer Is No Vacation for
Animals" and "Animals Are Not Ours to Wear." Their point? Not

When: Friday, June 22, 12 noon
Where: Outside The Fur & Leather Gallery, 720 Olive St., St. Louis
"Animals on fur farms are literally

year-round to cramped, filthy cages and suffer
from physical and psychological distress before they are killed by poisoning,
gassing, anal electrocution, or neck-breaking. In
the summer, countless animals (particularly
young ones) also suffer from heat exhaustion
and dehydration. PETA has obtained and will share at the demonstration video
footage of fur farms
in China—which is now the world's largest fur exporter—showing animals,
including cats and dogs, who were skinned alive.
