PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk has confessed that she once loved to wear fur and eat meat. "There was nothing I loved more than my fur jacket,” the New York Post quoted her writing in a new book The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights.

“In my 20s, I was eating my way through the animal kingdom, and what I didn''t eat I wore," she added.
However, it was the visit to an animal shelter that changed her outlook towards animals.

This eventually led to the creation of the animal rights'' group in 1980.
