Elizabeth Hurley becomes the latest PETA targetJuly 15th, 2008 - 4:00 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, July 15 (ANI): British star Elizabeth Hurley is the latest celebrity to be targeted by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The animal rights group has urged the supermodel-turned-actress not to use meat in her upcoming food range and cookery books, reports Contactmusic.
The group wrote her a letter after learning she intends to launch her own range of low-fat organic food, which will include ingredients sourced from her 400-acre farm in Gloucestershire, England - including a litter of piglets.
In the letter, PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich writes: “Just as we hope Ms. Hurley would be hesitant to ship her dog off to slaughter, we hope she will pause to think before killing the pigs and other animals she is caring for on her farm.
“With so many healthy and delicious vegetarian options available, there’’s no reason for Ms. Hurley - or anyone else - to betray her animal friends,” he added. (ANI)
