Beauty Queen for PETA: Fur Coat like Skinning Humans

Four former beauty queens stripped down naked for PETA's latest Say No to Fur campaign.  The former Miss USA's include Alyssa Campanella 23, from 2011; Shandi Finnessey, 35, from 2004;  Susie Castillo, 33, from 2003...and 38 year-old-reality star Shanna Moakler.  The artsy black and white poster depicts the four naked beauty queens cupping their breasts and nether regions with a message scrawled across which reads 'Feel beautiful in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs.' 

The campaign is designed to bring attention to the fact that some pageants still offer fur coats to winners despite the cruel treatment of animals. 

'When it comes to the anti-fur campaign, it's really close to my heart,' said Moakler. 'I've been awarded fur coats and I'm hoping to stop it in our pageant community.'

Finnessey said. 'What would happen if that happened to a human being? We would be outraged. So what's the difference?'

No statistics were given as to the population of the pageant community, nor did any of the former beauty queens admit to boycotting leather in support of the ethical treatment of cows.  

Skinning a human being alive is considered a felony in the United States.
