News video: Animal rights group buys LVMH shares to pressure it over skinsThe animal rights group Peta has become a shareholder of the French luxury goods maker LVMH. Peta – which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals – said it had bought an unspecified number of shares so that it can pressure the firm to stop selling bags and other merchandise made from exotic skins. The organisation – which is well known for protests – will have access to shareholder meetings and the right to question board members by being an investor. It previously followed the same policy with another luxury group – Hermès – buying just one share. At the annual shareholders’ meeting in Paris a Peta member questioned the company’s CEO about the use of exotic skins. LVMH has denied allegations that it had bought skins in recent years from a Vietnamese crocodile farm accused of cruelty. #BREAKING Luxury good maker LVMH said Louis Vuitton brand ceased all trading w Vietnamese farms which peta alleged mistreated crocodiles.— Nahayat Tizhoosh (@NahayatT) January 13, 2017
