Elisabetta Canalis Would Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur

Elisabetta Canalis for PETA

Italian superstar Elisabetta Canalis bares all for PETA's iconic anti-fur campaign and proudly declares that she'd rather go naked than wear fur. Canalis stripped down for a sexy PETA ad to help spread the word about the cruel fur industry. "I decided to go nude because I think that nudity always creates a big reaction", she explains. "That is what is required to keep people's attention on such a brutal practice …. These poor animals are electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned, and bludgeoned just for the sake of fashion."

Fur-bearing animals suffer unimaginably in the name of fashion. Animals in the wild can languish in agony for days when they are caught in cruel traps. Some, especially mothers with babies, chew through their limbs in a desperate attempt to escape. On fur farms, animals are denied every single thing that makes life worth living. They're often driven mad from the relentless boredom of a life spent confined to a filthy cage. Foxes, minks, rabbits and even dogs and cats are bludgeoned, stamped, electrocuted and gassed to death, and many are skinned while still alive.

"Don't buy fur", Canalis urges. "Even a little trim – your gloves or your bag or your jackets …. You must remember that animals don't have a voice. You must be their voice. Never be afraid to speak up."

Follow Elisabetta's lead and be a voice for animals! Sign the pledge that says the only skin you'll wear will be your own.

I, the undersigned, hereby pledge to go fur-free. I say "no" to the cruel and barbaric slaughter of millions of animals around the world for their skin. I say "no" to fur coats, collars, trim, trinkets and cat toys as well as to any other products made from the fur of animals. I pledge to expose the truth about fur and to spread the word until the international fur trade is ended.
