COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – An animal rights group plans to set up four scantily clad mannequins in downtown Colorado Springs to protest the use of fur, leather, wool, and other animal-based clothing.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the mannequins will be wearing a fur stole, a leather belt, a wool hat or an alligator-skin clutch during Tuesday’s protest.

According to KOAA-TV, PETA Vice President Tracy Reiman said the group is using mannequins because members believe only a dummy would ignore how animals are killed to create clothes.
