Rocker Dave Navarro Bares It All for Animals

Dave Navarro rocks. Whether he’s touring with Jane’s Addiction, hosting his radio show Dark Matter, or posing nude for PETA, he does it with the style and intensity befitting a rock star. Dave’s latest gig is helping animals by baring it all in an ad for PETA’s “Ink, Not Mink” series. Helping animals has never looked so good!

After learning about where fur comes from, this former fur-wearer vowed never to buy or wear fur again. Dave tells PETA in his exclusive interview, “[S]everal years ago, I saw video footage of animals being skinned alive and screaming, and it, it honestly is the most horrific, inhumane thing I’ve ever seen.” These animals are often still conscious as they have their pelts peeled off their writhing bodies and can be heard screaming in pain.

Buying and wearing fur promotes an industry filled with cruelty and suffering. Dave explains, “[S]ome of the simple things you can do to help save animals is not buy fur, stay away from products that have been animal tested. It’s really very, very simple to just support something or buy something that doesn’t brutalize animals like this.”
