Corrie Stars Bear All…

From Alexia over at Peta UK…quite a few Corrie stars have joined a campaign to end the use of real bear fur on the Queen’s guards ceremonial hats. 

Stars include Wendy Peters (Cilla), Jenny McApine (Fizz), and many more…check it out here.

    You know what gets me about this pic? Michael’s wearing a leather coat. Don’t cows count?

  7. Pamer says:

    what about our sean tulley wearing a lambs wool sweater???

  8. elocin says:

    They don’t have to kill the sheep to get the wool, I think that makes a HUGE difference.

  9. Pamer says:

    ooooohhhh…i forgot they no longer kill sheep for their pelts…sorry. They did back in the 50’s didn’t they??

    Where does the fur come from Glacia?

    I spent 5 years of my life following black bears around northern Labrador’s Torngat Mountains. I like bears much.

    Bears are much more than future bearskin rugs or hats….

    Actually, I read somewhere that wool is one of the most eco-friendly fabrics, because sheep (lambs? I don’t actually know what the difference is.) can graze in craggy land which wouldn’t work for agriculture.

    And leather, though technically a animal rights no-no, is better than bear skin, since at least the cow was going to die anyway, so we could all have our bacon double cheeseburgers and 24 oz. steaks.

    So, you know. Waste not, want not.

    Somewhere, a vegan just died a little inside.

    BTW, I am in agreement with the “ban the bear fur” thing.

    In case that wasn’t clear by the above.
