Wild and free- not handbags

If these young ostriches didn’t live here in the wilds of Kenya, and instead on a commercial farm, they would eventually be turned upside down, stunned by electrocution, their throats slit, bled out, and then their feathers plucked to make Prada, Hermes and LV handbags. In true style- London, Paris and Gangnam- PETA protestors made the point at these flagship stores recently that ostriches shouldn’t be made into handbags.

Large families are led by Mother Hen, as this one was doing here. Along with all these beautiful, feathery youngsters, they walked peacefully into the sunset. Free from being made into handbags, and free to wander the savannah.

Wild, as they should be.
