Hey, everyone! You may remember my previous post about the bearskins investigation. Well, this has generated a ton of media coverage, which is excellent, but this article in particular really caught my eye.
A spokesperson from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) was quoted in the article as saying, “Some alternatives to real fur are already in use by the Royal Artillery and others, and we are in discussions with PETA to identify an improved fake fur.”
Wha?! If by discussions, they mean PETA Europe talking and the MoD isn’t listening, then yeah … I guess you could say there’ve been some awesome discussions.
