Miami -- Wearing cow costumes and holding signs
that read, "Hands Off My Hide" and "Leather Rips Off Cows,"
PETA members will converge on the Shoe Market of the Americas Trade Show in
Miami. Their point? That shoes and other items made of leather cost cows the
skin off their backs and that there are many stylish nonleather shoes—from
trainers to wingtips to spiked heels—to choose from.
When: Tuesday, June 26, 12 noon
Where: Northeast corner of N.W. Seventh Street and N.W. 72nd Avenue, Miami
Every year, most of the millions
of cows slaughtered by the leather industry endure castration, tail-docking,
and dehorning—all without being given any painkillers. Leather is also bad for
the environment: In order to preserve the skins, companies use toxic chemicals
that can end up in nearby soil and water supplies.
"Leather is murder on the environment, human health, and especially
cows," says PETA's associate director of campaigns, Lindsay Rajt. "Mutilating
cows on factory farms and skinning them alive in slaughterhouses while so many
fashionable nonleather shoes are available just isn't right."
