In downtown Tampa, PETA protests clothing made from fur, leather
TAMPA - Members of an animal rights group bared some skin in public today to protest clothing made with fur and leather. The protesters wore almost nothing except pink underwear bearing the logo for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA. "By showing some our own skin, we hope that people will consider letting animals keep theirs," said Hayley Ray. The protesters stood at the corner of Franklin Street and Kennedy Boulevard in downtown Tampa starting at noon today.
