For some reason, the folks at PETA choose to visit Boise in January or February each year. Though the winter chill isn't as harsh this year, there's still little-to-no logic behind stripping down to your underwear, that is, unless you're protesting animal cruelty.
So-called "PETA vixen" Diana Mendoza was showing quite a bit of skin this afternoon at Eighth and Main, asking passersby to "bare skin, but don't wear skin."
PETA's message is anything but cute. Activists said animals who are trapped for their fur "suffer excruciating pain before trappers stomp on the animals' chests or break their necks."
