PETA Slams Nicole Richie's Wedding

The folks over at PETA are soooooo predictable. As soon as they found out Nicole Richie had an elephant at her wedding they fired off a nasty letter to her.

PETA wrote, "We know that Nicole is sympathetic to the plight of animals in the circus and is opposed to the way in which baby elephants are slammed to the ground and gouged with steel-tipped bullhooks in order to train them for circuses such as Ringling Bros.

"We're sure she didn't know that Have Trunk Will Travel—the company that likely provided Tai the elephant, who was taken from the wild as a baby more than 40 years ago—trains its elephants with bullhooks and electric shock prods. We're writing to her privately to respectfully ask her to keep exotic animals off her guest lists for future celebrations."

It's not the first time PETA has attacked Nicole. Back in 2006 they put her on their annual worst dressed list saying, “This pelt-wearing party girl is all animal skin and bones. She’s an incredible shrinking woman with the heart to match.”

With the pressure of planning her wedding Nicole probably didn't even think twice about Tai the elephant being mistreated before she booked him. Whose side are you on? PETA vs. Nicole.
