New York, Jun 17: PETA founder wore fur and ate meat! Yes its true. Ingrid Newkirk has confessed that she once loved to wear fur and eat meat.
"There was nothing I loved more than my fur jacket," the New York Post quoted her writing in a new book 'The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights'. "In my 20s, I was eating my way through the animal kingdom, and what I didn't eat I wore," she added.
However, it was the visit to an animal shelter that changed her outlook towards animals.
This eventually led to the creation of the animal rights' group PETA in 1980.
