PETA To Send Hayden Some Undercover Footage On Leather

Yesterday’s story on Hayden Panettiere joining up with bag designer Dooney & Bourke on a new line of Italian calfskin clutches brought out quite a few comments from the community. Actually, the conversation from both sides — those that are vegetarians, but still wear leather — to those that shop secondhand or have sworn it off completely, was enlightening.

As expected, PETA is looking at this as more of an opportunity to educate Hayden than one to slam her. Our friends over at The Celebrity Truth contacted the animal rights organization and received a response from media rep Heather Carlson.

“When celebrities get involved with animal rights in any way, we’re happy to work with them,” said Carlson. “Even if it’s on just one issue. Hayden has been wonderful on issues involving the slaughter of dolphins and whales. We are sure that she’ll extend her concern for abused animals to those less popular, like cows who are skinned for bags and shoes, once she sees our undercover footage, which we’ll be sending to her.”

That video, narrated by Pamela Anderson, is available below the fold. Should be interesting to see where Panettiere goes from here with such future partnerships.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
