The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) latest campaign against the wool industry has provoked an online backlash from Australian farmers.

The animal rights group posted a graphic image on Facebook last week that shows California-based, Australian-born musician, Jona Weinhofen, holding a shorn, bloodied sheep, with the caption: “here’s the rest of your wool coat”.

The post attracted hundreds of commenters, many of whom said the image was sensationalised and that sheep shearing was not cruel.
