LONDON – Animal rights organisation PETA has written to luxury fashion brand Prada ahead of its virtual annual meeting today, urging the company to stop the use of wild animal skins in its accessories.

PETA makes the case that the ongoing health crisis has been rumoured to have originated from wild animal markets, and alludes to research from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which states that 75 per cent of recently emerged infectious diseases affecting humans originated in other animals. 

The organisation – whose motto in part reads “animals are not ours to wear” – will partake in the annual meeting as a shareholder, through which it’ll look to influence a ban on such products.
