Cage protest at pet cruelty

A SHOP worker will be crammed into a small cage on Princes Street as part of a campaign against keeping reptiles as pets.

The employee from Lush Cosmetics will dress as a chameleon and be locked up after the company learned of the cruelty shown as part of the illegal trade in lizards.

Leonie Davies, Lush's campaigns manager, said: "We hope that by raising the profile of this important issue we can lessen the demand for reptiles as pets."

The event takes place tomorrow at noon.
