Reese Witherspoon can be counted among the celebrities who love animals. She even has her own barn with donkeys, goats and pigs. So, when PETA wrote to her about the cruelty behind the python purse she was carrying in a recent photo, of course the actress responded by ditching the purse.

PETA sent Withersoon a video narrated by her former costar in ‘Walk the Line,’ Joaquin Phoenix, about how snakes suffer a cruel death for the sake of fashion.

The animal rights organization said about Reese’s decision to abandon the purse, “We’ve long known Reese to be a kind person, so we’re pleased—and not surprised—that she is hanging up her python bag for good. We hope Reese’s honest mistake will serve as a reminder for all of us to be extra-certain that what we’re buying is mock crock or fake snake.”

Python is actually illegal to buy in California, but not to carry. Many fashion houses including Chloe, the one that made Witherspoon’s purse, continue to use reptile skins even though the process of obtaining them is undeniably cruel. Kudos to Reese for being willing to admit her mistake and taking the side of compassion.

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.
