Animal rights activists — in town for the city's Fashion Week — turned heads this afternoon during lunch hour at the corner of Auburn Avenue and Peachtree Street. Dressed up as a lion and tiger in body paint and little else, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals interns Mayo and Jessica covered their chests with signs that encourage people not to purchase leather, fur and exotic skins. "We are asking Atlanta's fashion-forward consumers to make a more compassionate choice by choosing animal prints instead of animal skins," said Marcia Masulla of PETA. She added that animals on fur farms are "anally electrocuted, beaten and many times skinned alive." Oy. She encouraged people to go to their website to see a video on the fur trade. Careful, it's not for the faint of heart.
