This is How RUMORS get started.
No PETA member threw red paint of someone's fur coat. Years ago there were a "few" animal activists who threw red paint, but they were not PETA members. I have been to tons of Anti fur rallies(including when 1 MIillion people peaceable marched on Washington DC) and I am a PETA member. They were all well organized, peaceful and we handed pamphlets as well as protested in front of fur salons. And Yes we had permits! PETA also had small card handouts which explained where fur coats come from and the suffering the animals go through that you could give to someone wearing a fur coat.
Bob Barker led one of the rallies we were on and He was a huge supporter and also Believed wearing FUR is completely wrong. At these rallies anyone is welcome and literally thousands of people who are for animal rights show up and they are Not just PETA members. I belive there are also "fake" protesters who cause most of the disruptions and problems.
You may not like all that PETA does, but their intention is still to stop animal cruelty and their number way to do this is through education in the schools. Before you judge you should actually ask. I find it surprising you are talking about this issue now when first it is not fur season and two that incident happened so many years ago? Are you just trying to get people to believe more PETA BS? I do not know what you believe to be true about PETA, but yes there are tons of false rumors put out about them because they are the most influential Animal Rights organization. Look at the membership sometime and maybe you will wonder why they have so many celebrities and congressman backing them if they did even 1/2 of what people accuse them of. I think fur wearing is beyond disgsuting and I still do not know anyone who would throw paint on a person. I do remember a few double way stick tapes being stuck with sayings to the back of the coats of several fur wearers..... that was kind of funny( and did not do any permanent damage except perhaps to their pride)!
EDIT: To the one who believes she is a liken to a cavewoman I do suggest she and her fur coat return to living in the caves! No electricity, no running water water or AC etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc..... Since people lived that way once upon a time and It was normal for it's day. I have often felt that cavemen and dinosuars died off and so will the those who believe wearing fur TODAY is acceptable!
AND People do not just go back out and buy another fur for $20-$40, 000 dollars. Unless you are talking about a cheap rabbit coat. They would try to have it cleaned.
