‘People’s Court’ Rules: ‘Don’t Wear Fur’

Published by PETA.

The verdict inside the courtroom on Friday’s People’s Court was against a consignment shop that donated a fur-wearer’s musty minks after they didn’t sell, but outside, the show’s host and legal analyst, Harvey Levin, announced his own judgment about wearing fur: “It’s just cruel. … The skin ought to stay on the animals.”



Caring people should always find in favor of animals by boycotting fur—or risk being found guilty of supporting an indefensible industry that profits from horrific animal suffering and slaughter. Thanks to all the warm, stylish alternatives to animal fur and skins, there’s no excuse not to follow Levin’s verdict: “Don’t wear fur.”
