Lagerfeld's Fur Battle With Peta
by Staff

Designer Karl Lagerfeld has launched into a bitter battle with animal rights activists after defending the use of fur in fashion.

The 75-year-old German boss of fashion house Chanel claims anti-fur protesters are "childish" and argues hunted animals would kill their human predators if they could.

Lagerfeld says, "In a meat eating world, wearing leather for shoes and even clothes, the discussion of fur is childish.

"(In the north, hunters) make a living having learned nothing else than hunting, killing those beasts who would kill us if they could kill us."
Michael McGraw, spokesperson for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (peta), has hit back, telling the New York Post,, "Lagerfeld seems particularly delusional with his kill-or-be-killed mentality. When was the last time a person's life was threatened by a mink or rabbit?"
It's not the first time Lagerfeld has battled Peta; in 2001 activists in New York hurled tofu pies at him at an event to protest his use of fur - but they missed, hitting fellow designer Calvin Klein instead. (c) WENN
