NBA Point Guard Ty Lawson Sports Ink, Not Mink!

Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson knows what it takes to be tough on the court, and now he’s teamed up with PETA to defend animals against the fur industry.

Every year, millions of animals—including foxes, minks, raccoons, rabbits, chinchillas, and even cats and dogs—are electrocuted, beaten, drowned, strangled, and sometimes even 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 Ty 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!

Watch the exclusive behind-the-scenes interview and see Ty show off his ink for animals!
