Compassion for Animals

Dan Mathews

Mary Tyler Moore will be missed for both her comedic genius and her ceaseless compassion for animals.

Mary was one of the first stars to have a change of heart about fur, donating her $112,000 sable coat to PETA to use in protests. She famously helped PETA free a 65-year-old lobster from a restaurant back into the ocean, and hosted PETA’s video exposé of the horse abuse involved in making the drug, Premarin. 

A longtime vegetarian, she once said, “I’m convinced, with heightened awareness, that there will come a time when we look back and say, ‘Can you believe that people used to eat animals?’ A human being has been given an intellect to make choices, and we know there are other food sources that do not require the killing of a creature that would protest being killed.”
