If holiday shoppers needed divine intervention to persuade them to keep animal skins off their lists, that’s exactly what they got. A saintly duo of PETA “angels” has been crisscrossing Canada in cherubic attire to help people in the frozen north be angelic to animals this winter by eschewing furleather, wool, down, and exotic skins

The angels are hopeful that people will show good will toward animals this holiday season so that this year, every time a bell rings, an angel will get her wings and animals will keep their skin.
