Amargosa Valley, Nev. – The truth is out there—and up there—on an Area 51 billboard featuring nude aliens proclaiming, “We’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur.”

PETA’s alien ads—which also appear in Roswell, New Mexico, and Devils Tower, Wyoming (where Close Encounters of the Third Kind was filmed)—come in the wake of a just-released Department of Defense video of a Navy jet trailing a UFO and the revelation that the Pentagon had a secret UFO program involving Senator Harry Reid.

“As government records reveal, Area 51 may draw visitors from other planets as well as from other states, so we’ve teamed [up] with PETA to greet them with a message of compassion for all forms of life,” says Dennis Hof, whose BunnyRanch brothel sponsored the billboard.

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk adds, “If aliens visit, we’d all better hope they don’t kill and skin us the way humans have done to other species. PETA is asking everyone to set a good example by treating all animals with more respect.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—notes that the majority of the world’s fur comes from animals on fur farms, where they’re confined to severely crowded cages. Many suffer from eye infections and rotting jaws, and some gnaw into their own limbs or tails because of the constant psychological torment that they’re forced to endure.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
