Trent does PETA

MTV News have this little snippet up on their site right now:
"Trent Reznor is up in arms about the fur industry in China, the world's leading exporter, which uses millions of cats and dogs to augment its supply. The Nine Inch Nails frontman narrates a graphic video expos´┐Ż for PETA which shows the practice of captured cats and dogs being slaughtered in a Chinese animal market -- some with their collars still on them, "proof that they were someone's beloved companion," Reznor says. "What you're about to see may shock you," he says at the open of the two-minute video. "There are no regulations governing the Chinese fur industry," he notes, which leads to systematic abuses and fur being mislabeled as that of other animals.

Thanks Gregory!

*Update*

Benny and Paul write in to let us know that PETA has the video up on their furisdead.com site (NSFW). It also comes complete with a competition (that involves spamming as many people you can with the video - something that's not really very internet friendly, but so it goes) to win an signed Reznor iPod.

*Update2*

Just to be clear - the NIN Hotline is in no way associated with PETA or the competition they are running.
