frontman Chester Bennington
has shed his clothes in support of animal rights. The caring rocker has teamed up with Peta2, the young adult division of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), for its new "Ink, Not Mink" campaign, which urges fans to bear body art instead of fur.
He's posed topless for print ads, showing off his collection of tattoos across his chest and arms under the tagline, "Be comfortable in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs."
He says, "What's really important for people to understand is the cruelty behind the fur industry. Electrocuting animals, skinning them while they're alive - these are acts of inhumanity. Because it's out of sight, it's usually out of mind for most people, and we need to show our respect for all creatures of this world."
Bennington is also speaking out about another animal rights cause close to his heart - dog and cat overpopulation - in a bid to encourage pet owners to have their fluffy friends neutered or spayed.
