PETA Hit Out At Naomi Campbell Branding Her Clueless
Bosses at People for the ethical treatment of animals (PETA) have hit out at supermodel Naomi Campbell, branding her clueless after she revealed plans to host an elephant polo match for her partner Vladimir Doronin’s 50th birthday party.
Unsurprisingly PETA have spoken out about Naomi’s unethical plans to use full-grown elephants as entertainment at her party, releasing the following statement to show their disproval: “We will urge Naomi Campbell to immediately withdraw her plans to organize this cruel sport and instead work with PETA to promote elephant protection in the country.”
India’s tradition of elephant polo is considered cruel and violent by animal welfare charities worldwide. Trainers stab the elephants, which are kept in chains, with sharp steel hooks into their hides. Not only do the elephants suffer from painful, wounds, sores and infections, they are also often driven insane, showing signs of distressed and frustrated behavior such as repeated swaying, rocking and head bobbing.
PETA went on to state that Naomi is “clueless” when it comes to animal welfare, adding that her celebrity friends have “more money than compassion.”
Naomi has yet to respond to PETA about their animal cruelty claims, whilst it remains unclear whether or not she will go ahead and use the elephants at her party.
Meanwhile Naomi has a long-running history with PETA, who have previously launched several personal attacks at the model over her love for wearing animal furs.
