manson.gifAnother week begins and two more high-profile PETA campaigns take off. First up, Scottish rocker Shirley Manson is appearing in a new anti-fur campaign holding up the carcass of a skinned fox. Wearing a Stella McCartney-designed dress (how appropriate), Manson poster reads “Here is the rest of your fur coat.” From the article,

“Manson, who is based in Los Angeles and currently recording her first solo album, said: ‘I believe very strongly in the ethical treatment of animals. A lot of my fans are very pro-animal rights and have often, when I have been wearing fake fur, said: ‘Is that real?’ and really gotten upset, and I have had to reassure them: ‘No it’s cool, it’s fake, don’t worry. They have made me very conscious of it, and I am really grateful that they have made me pay attention.'”

PETA also took the wraps off a new anti-seal hunt campaign headlined by three-time Olympian and world-renowned French figure skater, Surya Bonaly. This being her second PETA ad, Bonaly is no stranger to controversy such campaign create. According to the site, when asked by young fan, “But isn’t fur so pretty?” She replied, “Yes, my dear, you have pretty hair, too—but does that mean we should cut your head off and wear it?” Word is that little girl is still in therapy.

Bonaly is coming out against the annual Canadian seal hunt in which “335,000 seal pups as young as 2 weeks old are beaten with clubs, shot, impaled on hooks, and even skinned alive for their fur as their mothers watch helplessly nearby.” Her ad featuring blood on ice is a fitting analogy to the real hunt.
