The 33-year-old singer appears in a new campaign about the “tortuous” methods used to kill animals for fur. Pictured cuddling a very fluffy rabbit in a photo shot recently in London by celebrity photographer Karl Grant, Imbruglia was extremely excited about the campaign. But her plans to do a live launch were hindered by her recording commitments.
“There is no kind way to rip the skin off animals’ backs,” she said. “In the wild, animals are caught in snares and steel-jaw traps that slam down on their limbs – they often cut down to the bone and mutilate animals’ legs and paws… Anyone who wears any fur shares the blame for the torture and gruesome deaths of millions of animals each year.”
The campaign can be viewed at the PETA website.
