Chester Bennington's Anti-Fur Ad

Chester Bennington contributes his stellar vocals to bands Linkin Park and Dead By Sunrise, and now Chester is using his pipes to speak up for animals. In his awesome ad, Chester bares his skin to help animals keep theirs and encourages his fans to choose "ink, not mink."

As a big animal lover and supporter of animal rights, Chester is speaking out against fur because of the cruelty inherent in the fur industry. Says Chester, "Electrocuting animals, skinning them while they're alive —these are acts of inhumanity." He explains, "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."

In addition to boycotting fur, Chester also promotes adopting homeless animals rather than buying animals from pet stores and encourages his fans to have their dogs and cats spayed or neutered—all great ways to help animals.
