Persistent PETA buys a share of Hermés to keep a hawk-eye watch on animal treatment


It rattled the fashion industry. PETA showed everyone in the fashion fraternity that not only would they shut out mink stoles and fur coats, but you stick to your words when you promise innocent creatures to see them later, or in a while. Alligator and crocodile farms are patent in the glam industry, but when they meet certain international standards of slaughter (well, you enjoy a meat stew prepared from bleating goats in a slaughter home, don’t you!).

Anyway, if you had been following our trail, you would remember how they got Birkin fans to literally eat their $300,000 arm-candy and how the namesake lashed out at her friends Hermés to stop using her name on their products till they had cleared this ‘bloody’ mess? Well, PETA is not stepping down their march. In order to make sure the dudes at Hermés takes them seriously and end its sale of exotic animal skins. They ought one share so that they can attend the company’s annual meetings and raise any question of doubt.
