Antoine Bethea Wears Ink, Not Mink!

NFL safety Antoine Bethea knows what it takes to be tough on the field, and now he’s defending animals against the fur industry for PETA.

Every year, millions of animals—including foxes, minks, raccoons, rabbits, chinchillas, and even cats and dogs—are electrocuted, beaten, drowned, strangled, and skinned alive for their fur. In China, the world’s largest exporter of fur, there are no penalties for abusing animals on fur farms.

When Antoine learned about the cruelty inflicted on these animals, he stepped up his game and bared his tats to show why he always chooses ink, not mink!
