‘Animal Rising’ Defaces Portrait (Video)


(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Revealing their true unruly nature, Animal Rising activists covered Wallace and Gromit-themed posters onto the new painting of King Charles III, which is currently on public display at the Philip Mould Gallery in London.

Watch the video further down this post.

The group shared a video of two of its supporters pasting the face of the animated character Wallace over Charles’s on the red-hued painting by Jonathan Yeo. They also stuck on a speech bubble, which read in capitals: “No cheese, Gromit. Look at all this cruelty on RSPCA farms!”

The demonstration aimed to highlight Animal Rising’s “damning investigation” into 45 Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) “assured” farms, the group said.

They added that the protest was a “comic redecoration” and said the posters were affixed using water sprayed on the back so they could be easily removed.

In turn, the King is the RSPCA’s royal patron, and Animal Rising called on the monarch to suspend his support for the charity.

The RSPCA claimed it was shocked at the “vandalism” of the portrait. It launched an “immediate, urgent” investigation and is taking the concerns over animal welfare at the farms “extremely seriously.”

However, the charity asserted it remains confident its scheme is the best way to help farmed animals currently.

Daniel Juniper, a former early year’s practitioner and one of those involved, said: “With King Charles being such a big fan of Wallace and Gromit, we couldn’t think of a better way to draw his attention to the horrific scenes on RSPCA Assured farms.”

“Even though we hope this is amusing to His Majesty, we also call on him to seriously reconsider if he wants to be associated with the awful suffering across farms being endorsed by the RSPCA,” Juniper added.

“Charles has made it clear he is sensitive to the suffering of animals in UK farms; now is the perfect time for him to step up and call on the RSPCA to drop the Assured Scheme and tell the truth about animal farming,” he continued.

Additionally, gallery owner Philip Mould said that they had anticipated these types of responses. He underscored that the attack on the picture was not actually serious as the perpetrators put water on the surface very quickly in a swift maneuver and then they added stickers to that, so no damage was done.
