PETA asking shoppers to skip animal products

PHOENIX -- Dressed like Santa Claus, members of PETA plan to greet shoppers in downtown Phoenix on Monday in hopes of persuading them to cross products made from animal skins off their holiday shopping lists.

The group will be handing out candy canes with tags that read: "Be sweet to animals. Don't buy fur, leather, or wool."

PETA said the goal is to show shoppers that with all the different types of natural and synthetic fashions available, it's unnecessary to skin, shear, or mutilate animals to be in style.

In a press release, the animal-rights group said animals slated to be killed for their fur are often electrocuted, poisoned, or have their necks broken.

PETA volunteers will be near the intersection of Washington Street and Central Avenue beginning at noon Monday.
