Heather Mills has had to
defend her decision to wear a fur coat to a wedding in the 80s.
A picture has surfaced showing the notorious anti-fur campaigner with the
garment at the wedding in 1989. Reports suggest the Mink coat was made from up
to 40 animals, prompting immediate criticism of Mills, given her current stance
on the issue.
"The coat belonged to my mother, who had sadly died just a few days earlier
and I wore it as it made me feel close to her," Mills explained on her website.
"I am not ashamed I wore it. At the time I was not a vegetarian and I was not an
anti-fur campaigner. I was extremely young and not aware of the issues
surrounding the fur trade."
