In more PETA news, Benetton seems to be the latest clothing company being scrutinized by the animal-loving organization.
Apparently, PETA has learned that Benetton will most likely include real fur in its fall/winter 2009 line.
This, they say, “despite knowing that animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, often with exposed bones, wounds, and eye infections.”
“While the company has committed to becoming fur-free as of 2010, animals shouldn’t have to endure even one more season of abuse,” PETA continues on their web site.

Before you read further, let me caution you.
Some of your fave celebs may be nominated for this title.
And it’s not because they don’t have a great fashion sense.
It’s because Peta’s calling them out for insisting on incorporating fur into their outfits.
Nominees include Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Ashton Kutcher and Lindsay Lohan.
Seems like no designer who disses animal rights can escape Peta’s rage.
This time, they’re targeting Armani.
The activist group really got my attention with this vivid description on their web site.
Recent undercover investigations of rabbit fur farms and slaughterhouses in China and France—countries where Armani has bought fur—reveal that workers pulled rabbits out of their cages by their ears and shocked them in the head, sometimes multiple times, while the animals screamed. The bleeding rabbits twitched and shook with their eyes open wide before they died.
So sad! :-(
If you’re gung-ho about animal rights, help Peta convince Armani to drop fur in time for the Oscars — the deadline they’ve set for this action alert.
If you see Simon Cowell’s and Baby Phat founder Kimora Lee Simmons’ images in the neighborhood, it could be PETA’s brand-new Dog Doc Animal Birth Control (ABC) bus.
Emblazoned with the tagline “Simon Says: Get Your Dogs and Cats ‘Fixed,'” the clinic offers sterilizations, basic exams, fecal tests, skin scrapes, and tests for parvovirus, FIV, feline leukemia, and heartworms for minimal costs.
This follows Kimora’s bare-it-all “Be Your Dog’s Angel” ad, which urges people to take better care of their dogs.
