Jessica Simpson infuriates PETA over plans to adopt pigFebruary 24th, 2010 - 12:00 am ICT by IANS
London, Feb 23 (IANS) Singer Jessica Simpson has been criticized by animal rights group PETA for her desire to adopt a pig - accusing her of flaunting pets as her “latest accessory”.
The 29-year-old beauty was heartbroken when her beloved dog Daisy went missing last year and confessed she wanted another pet to dote on.
She wrote on her Twitter page, “I’m thinking about getting a pet pig. Does this mean I’ll have to give up pork?”
However, activists at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have hit out at Simpson for considering owning the farm pet, reports contactmusic.com
“Pigs, who are smarter than dogs and every bit as sensitive to pain and stress, don’t belong in Jessica’s stomach or carted around as her latest accessory,” said a PETA spokesperson.
