Simpson Targeted By Peta Activists Over Pig

JESSICA SIMPSON has been blasted by animal rights campaigners for her desire to adopt a pig - they're accusing her of flaunting pets as her "latest accessory".
The Irresistible hitmaker was left devastated last year (09) when her beloved dog Daisy went missing, seemingly snatched by a coyote, and confessed she wanted another pet to dote on.
She took to her Twitter.com page on Monday (22Feb10) and told her followers, "I'm thinking about getting a pet pig. Does this mean I'll have to give up pork?"
But activists at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have hit out at Simpson for considering owning the farm pet.
A PETA spokesperson tells USmagazine.com, "Pigs, who are smarter than dogs and every bit as sensitive to pain and stress, don't belong in Jessica's stomach or carted around as her latest accessory."
The comments come just months after Paris Hilton was slammed by PETA chiefs for adopting a pot bellied pig.
