PETA Takes UK Military to Court Over Refusal to Test Faux Fur Hats for Ceremonial Guards

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has filed for a judicial review of the United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defence’s refusal to test a faux fur alternative to the bearskin hats worn by ceremonial guards. The tall black hats are made using the fur of Canadian Black Bears and PETA argues the use of bear fur creates a market for hunting.
