PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has done some interesting stuff over the years to draw attention to what they believe, but this one takes the cake for me…

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk recently updated her will in an effort to continue “drawing attention to animal abuse and exploitation even after her death.” She plans on sending parts of her actual dead body to companies and celebrities who haven’t done things the PETA way.

For instance, North Face, which has it’s headquarters in Denver, is slated to receive one of Newkirk’s feet “to give the company a kick in the behind for selling down and wool, despite claiming to be committed to making environmentally friendly clothing.”

Elon Mulk will receive a piece of Newkirk’s heart related to his use of animals in product testing, Donald Trump Jr. will receive part of her spine due to his hunting hobby, and the Westminster Kennel Club will get part of her trachea due to their alleged role in promoting breathing-impaired dog breeds. The Office of the Governor of Alaska is set to receive Newkirk’s lungs in relation to aspiration pneumonia deaths that occur among dogs during the famed Iditarod race, chef Salt Bae will get her intestines related to his promotion of preparing and selling meat, and the Office of the King of Spain will get one of her ears in protest of bullfighting.
