Alas, due to the fleeting nature of Kimye’s visit to Ardpatrick in County Limerick, a proposed anti-fur protest outside Castle Oliver never got off the ground.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “They are not only in love, but also in love with the wearing of countless dead animals on their backs. We’re hoping that they can divorce their addiction to wearing the skins of tormented, tortured, dead animals and replace it with faux fur,” he said.Reality TV show star Kim Kardashian recently made a point of wearing a fox fur scarf while out on the town in New York, just a week after her sister Khloe, a one-time animal rights activist, sported a faux fur coat with a bold anti-fur slogan painted on the back in red paint.According to ARAN, every year millions of animals are trapped, drowned and beaten to death in the wild, and are strangled, gassed and electrocuted on fur farms. Mr Carmody claims that in Ireland alone, over 200,000 animals are locked in small wire mesh cages before being gassed to death.ARAN previously staged a protest when Lady Gaga visited Ireland, showing their anger at her “fur addiction” while last weekend they staged a protest outside Courtney Brothers Circus at Castletroy Shopping Centre in Limerick, over claims that its tigers were kept in cramped, filthy and tiny cages.
