Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The Hollywood and Highland mall is going to be the site of the next naked-lady PETA demonstration, set to take place at noon tomorrow.

The organization announced in a statement today that they'll be unleashing three "sexy PETA supporters" dressed in nothing but body paint (is that legal?) as a leopard, a snake and a cow. The action is intended to discourage shoppers from buying items made from wool, leather and exotic skins as holiday presents.

The statement comes complete with horrific details about how animals are killed for their skins, which we will spare you, but suffice it to say they do have a good reason to demonstrate. And here we are, writing about it, so even though it plays to the absolute lowest common denominator, maybe their PR strategy isn't so bad either.
