PETA Protesting Mars Inc.

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has begun a campaign against Mars Inc in response to their cruel treatment towards rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, and mice. They are asking shoppers to boycott M&M’s, Snickers, Twix, Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, Starburst, Dove, and Skittles. Experiments by Mars included forcing rabbits to eat high cholesterol diets with cocoa, then killing them to cut out the blood vessels to their hearts. Their competitor, Hershey, does not experiment on animals.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention! We will make sure to stop buying their candy!

    I’m not sure the HSUS knows yet. Or if they do, they haven’t released a press release yet. They uncovered a lot of designers who are using rabbit fur in their merchandise. =( It’s on their web site— hsus.org
