Grand Rapids, Mich. – “We Need You to Change.” That’s the message a sheep, cow, and goose have for Grand Rapids residents, courtesy of PETA’s bus advertisements throughout town urging individuals to start out 2022 on a compassionate notice by refusing to put on wool, leather-based, down, or anything cruelly obtained from animals.
“When individuals be taught that animals are left bleeding and screaming for clothes, they’re desirous to go for cruelty-free, vegan trend,” says PETA Govt Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is encouraging type consumers to embrace an animal-free wardrobe this yr.”
PETA entities’ investigations have revealed that employees go away delicate sheep with bloody, gaping wounds at wool operations; burn, electroshock, beat, and slaughter cows for leather-based; pluck geese so roughly for down that the birds shriek in ache and concern; and abuse animals in different methods.
PETA U.S.—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals should not ours to put on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra info, please go to PETA.org or observe the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
