The event took place at a busy Chennai
shopping centre during the International Leather Goods Fair, which was being
held nearby. Indian media couldn't get enough of the display of bloody
"cow heads" on meat hooks, and major news outlets turned out to cover
the protest. PETA staffers and volunteers got several opportunities to tell
reporters and shoppers about how cows, buffaloes and other animals suffer for a pair of shoes.
In India, animals used for leather have
their throats cut in full view of other animals, and many are dismembered and
skinned while they are still conscious. PETA asked shoppers to choose synthetic
leather and other cruelty-free options available at their local mall.
Maybe next time, we can include some cow
costumes with fake human skin wrapped around their hooves. Hmm, now there's an
idea for a demonstration.
