PETA Members Dress As Animals, & Go Inside Cages

Posted:

A protest by the group PETA in downtown Lansing had several people stuffed in cages Tuesday.

Members confined themselves behind bars in metal cages dressed as animals. They were on a street corner where other members held signs that said "summer is no vacation for animals."

PETA members say they are trying to raise awareness over the treatment of animals in fur farms.

"We're just here to represent the animals that are on fur farms sweating who don't have a choice and they're sitting in cages just as our activists are today," said Tracy Patton, campaign coordinator, PETA.

PETA says animals suffer during the summer months when they are confined to cages in extremely hot temperatures.
