Keeley Hazell: Don’t Wear Fur (PETA, NSFW)

Keeley Hazell, for PETA: “I like to support designers who are able to create fashionable and popular clothes without getting blood on their hands.”

Why say no to fur? After all, it’s comfortable, warm, soft, and a longheld symbol of affluence.

Oh, yeah, now we remember:

Fur items come from animals, including rabbits, foxes, minks, and chinchillas, who spend their short, miserable lives in cramped, filthy cages until they are slaughtered, or they are trapped and beaten to death in the wild. Fur farmers and trappers often use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gassing, bludgeoning, drowning, and poisoning. Many animals are still alive and able to feel pain when workers begin to rip the skin off their bodies…
