Warning, extremely graphic
Animal fur may remain fashionable on catwalks, but lord mayors and other senior council figures in England have been happy to eschew haute couture by dropping its use or going faux.
A check in the wardrobes of civic leaders has revealed eight do not have robes with fur, five use clothing with synthethic fur, and other authorities are reviewing their practice.
The survey of 23 lord mayors was carried out by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), which is still awaiting answers from some, including Roger Gifford of London.
Peta’s associate director Mimi Bekhechi said: “It’s important that public figures set a positive example, and by saying no to fur, these mayors have made it clear that animals deserve respect.
“Animals raised for fur suffer every day of their lives before they endure a painful and terrifying death.”
