NAKED animal rights protesters covered their bodies in fake blood on Sunday in Barcelona as part of a protest against the fur industry.

The protest, organised by animal rights organisation AnimaNaturalis, took place in Barcelona´s central Catalunya square.

Organisers said more than 32 million animals are “sacrificed and skinned” in the EU every year to provide fur to the clothing industry.

“More than 70 brave activists put themselves in the shoes of the animal victims of the fur and leather industry,” the organisation said on Twitter. “Cruelty is not elegant!”
