PARIS, Feb 12 (AFP) - Four animal rights activists stripped naked on Paris's Champ-Elysees on Thursday in a protest against people wearing fur, journalists and bystanders on the famous avenue saw.

The two men and two women undressed and lay on an inflatable mattress in front of a Louis Vuitton store, with only little hearts inscribed with "Yes to love" and "No to fur" hiding their genitals.

The stunt was organised by the US-based People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and lasted just a few minutes in the chilly winter weather. Police did not intervene.

"PETA chose the most romantic city in the world to remind Parisians and tourists of the intolerable suffering endured by animals trapped for their fur. Our Valentine's Day message is 'Love keeps us warm, fur leaves us cold'," one of the group's members who accompanied the protesters said.

He added that similar actions had been staged in New York, Toronto, London and Glasgow.
