We think PETA's found a new target and his name is Dennis Basso.
The furrier's fall collection included everything from fox, chinchilla, lynx belly, sable, goat and alligator.
Johnny Weir, who was sitting front row, must have felt like the animals used to make the coats: died and gone to heaven.

As things are getting decidedly worse for Zsa Zsa Gabor, her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, has been looking for ways to pay for the massive amount of medical bills that have accumulated over the past year. He's recently confessed to sources that he plans on selling some of Zsa Zsa's assets to help reduce their debt, specifically her opulent collection of fur coats.
Prince Frederic reveals that the furs are valued at over $600,000 and he'll be placing the items up for bid on his website in the coming days. He realizes that there are many animal lovers out there who will find this distasteful, but it is a measure he feels needs to be taken. He explains:
"Why should I pay $1200 a year? The furs don't get better with age and I need lots of money to pay bills so I'm going to sell them. I'm sure the animal lovers will be upset by this sale but what am I going to do with them? Zsa Zsa is an animal lover too so I was surprised she even bought the coats. She will never wear them again. The doctor says she will never get out of bed so I want the coats out of our life."
It's a hard situation and we totally sympathize.
Please send our best to her, Frederic. We wish her well.
