Spanish animal rights activists stripped naked and covered themselves in fake blood as part of a gruesome protest against the fur industry. informs, dozens of campaigners piled together to imitate a heap of animal carcasses in an area popular with tourists in Barcelona. In the middle of the activists, Luisa Escribano, 53, and her daughter Barbara, 21, held up a sign reading: 'How many lives just for a coat?'

Luisa said: 'It is very important to draw attention to what happens to the animals, and which goes largely unnoticed. They suffer and die on farms, but their lives matter for me and my family.' Each year over 60 million animals - including over 32 million in the EU - are killed around the world to make coats and other items from their skin, according to international animal rights group AnimaNaturalis which staged the demonstration.

Europe produces 70 percent of the world's mink fur and 63 percent of its fox fur, according to the group. Denmark and Finland are the world's largest producers and exporters of mink and fox fur. Other major producers are Russia, Canada, Sweden and the Netherlands.
