PETA is Pissed at Paris Hilton's Pig Purchase

Paris Hilton is a huge animal lover and is often seen with one of her many many many dogs. But her latest purchase has got PETA up in arms.

Last week Paris announced that she's going to add a little piggy named Princess Pigelette to her growing collection of pets. Royal Dandie miniature pigs has supplied Paris with a four to five-week-old adorable new miniature pig for $4,500.

Princess Pigelette is on its way to the US as we speak and Paris couldn't be more thrilled about it. And PETA couldn't be more pissed.

"So excited for my new piglette to come home to me," Paris tweeted. "I just picked out the cutest piggy from Patty at"

But PETA is accusing Paris of setting a "wretched example" by treating animals like they're "as disposable as her friends and fiancés."

"The Chihuahuas, ferrets, and kinkajous she's paraded through her home in the past were not accessories, and pot-bellied pigs aren't either," they added.

What do you think about Paris purchasing a baby piglet? Is PETA right? Does she treat her pets as if they're disposable? Or do you think Paris makes a great pet owner? Tell us your thoughts!
