In time for winter, PETA has released a "No Fur" enamel pin for fashion lovers who want to make a proud statement against fur. The fox and wire motif was designed by London tattoo artist Emily Malice, and PETA pal Anaïs Gallagher fronts the campaign.
"Fur belongs on the animals who are born with it, and I'm proud to rock my fur-free status with this pin," says Gallagher. "Don't ever be afraid to speak up for animals – they need us to be their champions."
PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to wear" – notes that animals on fur farms are confined to cramped, filthy cages before they're drowned, beaten, strangled, electrocuted, or even skinned alive for fur coats, collars, and cuffs. Animals caught in the wild in steel-jaw traps can languish for days – facing blood loss, dehydration, and attacks by predators – before being suffocated or bludgeoned to death.
