PETA angels Emily Lavender and Brandi Dugall were at the corner of Wellington Road and King Street Thursday (Dec. 13) for a noon-hour demonstration against fur and leather.
Lavender works for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals; Dugall is a Waterloo student volunteering for the Angels for Animals campaign.
The angels were on their way to Windsor for a similar demonstration.
“Some people yell at you, but we mostly get a positive response,” Dugall said.
Several young men stopped to pose for pictures with the girls.
“Aren’t you cold?” one woman asked.
“Yes, but that’s nothing compared to being skinned alive,” Lavender cheerily responded.
