New York -- By showcasing a flock of sheep in Bryant Park on Thursday, the Campaign for
Wool hopes to draw the attention of the fashion trade—but it's also drawing
protesters from PETA, who will flock to the event, with an activist
wearing a "bloodied" and bandaged sheep costume to protest industry

quotas that many animals are left with bleeding, gaping wounds that can lead to
infection and even death.
When: Thursday, September 27, 12 noon
Where: 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue, Bryant Park, New York
