All over the web this week there were images of animal rights activists protesting the abuse of animals in the fur trade. From naked caged demonstrators in Spain to a woman in England who stood nude in traffic with her body painted and a small sign over her breasts.
We found these shots of Hulk Hogan’s daughter Brooke and thought they were quite tasteful and also delivered a strong message about how these animals are caged before they are shipped off to be slaughtered.
We here at News Burner think it’s great that people are out protesting the inhumane treatment of animals, but it’s time for government agencies to step in and do something about it. Enough is enough. The PETA people have been bringing awareness to this cause for over 20 years but you never read about anything ever changing. Are the fur lobbyists that powerful in the US and abroad to stop politicians from passing new laws to protect animals from being tortured by the idiots in the fur trade?
I’ve never bought a fur coat in my life and now that I live in Florida, I think it’s safe to say that I will never buy one in my lifetime. It’s time to put more pressure on lawmakers and also on the people who wear fur coats around the world. The next time you see someone wearing a fur coat, just throw some red paint on them, and tell them that News Burner told you to do it.
