World Cup Winners

Published by PETA.

With people glued to their TVs to watch the final matches of the World Cup, a group of folks from PETA Asia, Fur Free South Africa, and the South African Naturist Federation—as well as fans from all over the world—seized the moment to speak out for animals who are killed for their fur.

Let’s unite and take action to reach our goal: a world in which no more animals are killed to become coats, collars, and cuffs.
