cn_towerAnother famous celebrity has gone fur-free! This time, Toronto’s CN Tower, the tallest free-standing structure in the Americas, is the big winner.

Sure, you don’t think of buildings as drawing the ire of PETA — but it’s what’s inside that matters, and the gift shop at the CN Tower was guilty of selling hats made out of rabbit and raccoon fur. “There’s a world of suffering in every fur hat and piece of fur trim,” says PETA President Ingrid E.

According to a rep for the Tower, the fur hats will be discontinued immediately.
