PETA activists bundled up in fur coats, draped chains around their bodies and sat in front of Holzman Furs on the south side of Milwaukee.

The demonstrators say they wanted to prove a point and get a sense of what it feels like to be an animal at a fur farm.
The fur protestors say animals at the farms sit in shackles in the sweltering heat before they are slaughtered. "Animals are dying in cramped filthy conditions, of dehydration, and heat stroke," says Virginia Fort who works with PETA.

Some shoppers in the area were upset with the demonstration, saying the protest was hurting a local family-owned business.

CBS 58's Elizabeth has shares the story.
