A BRIGHOUSE mum-to-be braved freezing temperatures to get naked in the name of goose cruelty.
Lynzi Waddington was one of five campaigners who peeled off their layers outside a London department store to halt the sale of cruelly-produced foie gras.
The shivering protesters stopped shoppers as they posed topless for 40 minutes wearing only red silk knickers.
They carried red roses and heart-shaped signs saying: “Have a Heart – Drop Foie Gras” to persuade bosses at Selfridges to follow other major food stores by removing the delicacy from its shelves.
Vegetarian Lynzi, 24, said: “It was excellent. It was such a liberating experience – it makes you feel alive.”
But it wasn’t the first time Lynzi has got her kit off for a good cause.
The Kirklees College student has also bared all for three years running in the Spanish Running of the Nudes protest against bullfighting.
Lynzi – who is expecting her first baby in July – said she couldn’t miss out on the action this time.
She said: “It was a bit last minute, but I really wanted to do it.
“Nobody wants to get their kit off but sometimes you just have to do it to get attention. We do this to make people listen and hopefully change things.
“I don’t think anything living should be treated in such a cruel way. It is just awful.”
The protest was organised by animal rights charity Peta (Peace for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) which believes the production of foie gras – which involves pumping the stomachs of geese with grain, maize and fat to make their livers swell to ten times their normal size – should be banned.
Robbie LeBlanc, the campaign’s Europe director, said: “Peta supporters are quite willing to go starkers to expose the naked truth behind this torture in a tin.”
