Want to see what held the attention of notorious playboy George Clooney for so long? Elisabetta Canalis‘ nude PETA ad shows the former Dancing with the Stars contestant in her full glory — and Stacy Keibler can eat her heart out.
“I decided to go nude because I think that nudity always creates a big reaction,” Canalis explained. “That is what is required to keep people’s attention on such a brutal practice. These poor animals are electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned and bludgeoned just for the sake of fashion.”
“Don’t buy fur,” Canalis urged. “Even a little trim —your gloves or your bag or your jackets. You must remember that animals don’t have a voice. You must be their voice. Never be afraid to speak up.”
PETA reminds holiday shoppers, “Every fur coat, vest, hat or fur-trimmed accessory causes animals an immeasurable amount of suffering. Foxes, minks, rabbits and even dogs and cats are bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted and gassed to death and many are skinned while still alive. You can help put an end to this unimaginable cruelty by choosing never to buy or wear fur or fur trim.”
Shoppers should also beware when buying so-called “fake fur.” The Humane Society of the United States has filed a legal complaint with the Federal Trade Commission accusing 11 retailers of falsely labeling or advertising “faux fur” when it is in fact real. The group filed similar complaints in 2007 and 2008.
