Bold move PETA!
The animal rights group formally known as PETA has urged Pope Benedict XVI to "truly go green" and insist that the next popemobile is made without leather.
PETA said it has written to the pope with the request following the Vatican's confirmation Wednesday that Germany's Mercedes-Benz auto company is making a study of a hybrid, energy-saving popemobile.
The car would replace the current Mercedes vehicle used when the pope travels abroad.
The Vatican press office said Friday it hadn't seen the letter and couldn't comment.
Benedict has made conserving resources an important concern of his papacy, so there's a chance he might go along with it.
