Anya Hindmarch, British fashion accessory store, has come under fire by PETA.
The animal rights organization is upset over the store's Bond Street location in the UK and their use of dead ducklings!
A storefront window display has five taxidermied ducklings in a row. Awww… cute/sadsies!
PETA, not only upset at the sight of dead animals, has long criticized the brand's use of python and other animal skins in their products.
"There is no such thing as an ugly duckling, but there are ugly handbags. We're sure that this ghastly window display will deter more customers than it draws in and put the company on the 'shun' list for caring customers. They may look cute but there are only cute when they are alive."
A spokesperson for Hindmarch said that the ducklings used were antiques and bought from an antique show.
So it's not like they went out and murdered some baby ducks just for that display!
They only bought something that already exists!
Maybe PETA should just let this one slide.
