Costumed activists bring animal protest to Broad Street

Two scantily dressed activists from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals urged locals to stop wearing animal skins and fur on clothing.

On Broad Street during the lunch hour, the protesters dressed in undergarments, orange body paint from head to toe and bushy fake fox tails attracted some attention from passersby.

“There’s simply no need to keep killing (animals) to keep warm, and especially not for fashion,” said Virginia Fort, PETA senior campaigner.

“Paint is what calls them over but when they hear our message they understand how serious we are.”
