Carla replied to star Brigitte Bardot, well-known for her animal rights work, that she does not wear fur because of a "personal choice" and said she would be glad "if people imitated her behaviour" in a reply to the actress' letter to stop bullfighting in the South of France. She also congratulated Brigitte on her passion for animal rights defense and Brigitte herself thanked the First Lady, as commented by AFP.
We applaud Carla's choice and hope her example leads the way. Hopefully Carla will get involved with the organisation in her role as spouse of the President. You can read more on the great work of the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for animal rights in this link:
