Naked, in-your-face protests—what better way to fight for our four-legged friends? Sixty million animals are sacrificed to the fur trade every year. Some are left alive to die after the pelts have been torn from their bodies. In Spain, where this bloody spectacle took place, 400,000 mink are bred in captivity annually. Born in April, they die in November, alive for six months locked in cages. To make a single chinchilla wrap, 300 animals are killed. A leopard-skin coat murders six magnificent cats. As Aïda Gascón, director of AnimaNaturalis, explains, “These days there is no need to rip the skins off these animals to make garments when there are so many more ethical products available.” To learn more, go to AnimaNaturalis.org.
