Activists: Queen is Stupidest Fur Wearer in The Netherlands

The animal protection organization Bont voor Dieren (Fur for Animals) has carried out an internet poll to choose the stupidest fur wearer in the country. Queen Beatrix received 41% of the 15,000 votes. The organizations’ director Claudia Linssen said that the queen wears furs regularly and sets the wrong example to citizens. She added: “I hope that by getting this nomination, the queen will understand that it is cruel to be wearing fur because it is causes unnecessary suffering to animals and pollution.
