PETA Protesters Storm Crufts “Best In Show” Award Announcement

Protesters from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) stormed the “Best in Show” announcement at the Crufts Dog Show in Birmingham, England, UK on Sunday (March 11).

Video footage from the animal rights group shows dramatic scenes as two activists holding banners that read “crufts: canine eugenics” ran onto the judging floor, interrupting the award ceremony before being apprehended by security and removed.

In a statement sent to Reuters, PETA said the activists were from the “The Vegan Strike Group” and were attempting to draw attention to The Kennel Club’s Breed Standards which they say are unnatural and harmful to the animals.

The Kennel Club is the organisation behind Crufts Dog Show which is considered the largest canine show in the world.

“It appears that protesters from PETA gained unauthorised access to the ring in the main arena at Crufts….Our main priority at the moment is the wellbeing of the dogs that were in the ring, who are being looked after by their owners and show officials” they said.

The winner of ‘Best in Show’ for 2018 was a whippet bitch called Collooney Tartan Tease owned by David and Yvette Short.
