Victoria's Secret Sheds Exotic Skins
An Animal Rights Article from


People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
May 2010

Victoria's Secret is cleaning out the skeletons in its closet catalogue. Thanks to a new policy by parent company Limited Brands, Victoria's Secret and lingerie line La Senza will no longer sell exotic animal skins.

PETA's undercover video footage has detailed the cold-blooded suffering that's caused by the international exotic-skins trade, so it's no longer any secret that snakes, crocodiles, lizards, kangaroos, and other animals are cruelly killed for their skins.

All that pain for a python purse or a croc clutch? Get real! I'll stick with fashion accessories that have a killer look but don't kill.
