Fur is murder, your Holiness! Signed, Petitioners

In Animal News on August 14, 2008 at 9:36 pm

Pope Benedict is a cat-lover, he even has a black-and-white domestic short hair cat named Chico back at his home in Germany. (Chico’s a published author too!)

Italian animal activists are trying to appeal to the animal-lover pope and get him to stop wearing ermine fur on his hats and robes (I had to look up ermine, it’s also known as a stoat or short-tailed weasel, I think it looks a lot like a ferret).

Some of the petitioners seemed a little extreme, asking why he doesn’t make a cape out of his cat. What do you think? Would you sign the petition? Do you think the pope looks like Santa Claus in the picture? (Not that we think that…)
