Prince Charles, PETA & the odd bear
From Hugo Rifkind, writing in The Times ...

Those tireless anthropomorphists at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) are, we hear, planning an inventive offensive against the Prince of Wales during his trip to the United States.

They are angry about the Guards regiments’ legendary “bearskins”, made from the pelt of the Canadian black bear. Presumably because soldiers in bearskins often appear on postcards of Buckingham Palace, they evidently believe that the Prince is to blame.

To bring him around to their view, Peta plans to have him followed by a protester dressed in a synthetic bear costume and holding a sign that reads “save my skin”.

Listen, we tell Peta’s somewhat more terrestrial London office. You’re missing a trick here. We’ve looked into this. The Guards use only 100-ish skins a year, all of which are collected from a regular Canadian cull that reduces the North American bear population by an annual 20,000-plus.

“Granted,” says the man from Peta. “When compared to the whole amount of animals killed, the MoD is a drop in the ocean.”

You misunderstand us. 20,000-plus dead bears — and the Guards use only about 150. So your man in the US doesn’t need to wear a synthetic bearskin.

With 19,850 going spare, he could easily find a real one.

“No,” says the man from Peta. “No, no. No.”

Maybe the best way to save the bears is from the Brigade of Guards to wear PETA skins instead - we have plenty of them that need culling
