Kate Moss Caught in Fur Storm
- PETA home in on pelt clad supermodel

Kate Moss Caught in Fur StormKate Moss has come under fire from animal rights campaigners for repeatedly wearing what appears to be real fur.

The 32-year-old supermodel - who once posed naked for an anti-fur campaign - was pictured only last week at a New York charity auction wearing a shaggy black coat which appeared to made from animal pelts.

Kate has been sent a letter by The World Society for the Protection of Animals appealing to her to boycott fur.

The RSPCA and the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade have backed the letter.

PETA - who ran an anti-fur campaign in the 90s featuring a picture of Kate and other supermodels in the nude - has launched a website, BloodyBurberry.com, which shows pictures of dead animals superimposed on images of models.

PETA spokesman Yvonne Taylor said: "As the high-profile face of this company, Kate falls into this. We believe that if she understood what happens in the fur industry then she would stop wearing fur."

Kate has also been criticised for remaining as the face of Burberry, who use real fur, while signing a 50 million contract to design for anti-fur company TopShop.

A PETA spokesman said: "It shows that she does not have any ethics but is willing to take money for whatever she can get."
