Is PETA showing their true colors again?
From the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance
A recent e-mail sent to an Australian fashion designer from what appeared to be a PETA e-mail address contained an alleged death threat. If found true, PETA will have taken its outrageous acts to a new level.
Fashion designer Alannah Hill issued a public statement against PETA after receiving the alleged threat from a person indicating a relationship with the animal rights group. According to a statement published in several international newspapers, Hill stated that police were contacted on August 4 in order to “investigate a disturbing and heated death threat.” The threat was from the e-mail address “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
PETA had been protesting outside Hill’s boutique in Melbourne, Australia by donning Grim Reaper outfits and criticizing use of rabbit fur in her designs.
According to media reports, a PETA staffer indicated that it does oppose Hill’s work, but denied that it was behind the specific threat made in the e-mail.
