I'd just like to say a big well done to Sophie for giving up her time to do something like this and setting an example for such a big issue.

Of course Sophie is giving up her time for free. The above photo was taken by Mary McCartney who is carrying on some of the work of her late and great mother Linda ( wife of Paul ) a great photographer and animal welfare campaigner herself.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Four fur protesters rushed the catwalk at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show taping Thursday night as Gisele Bundchen was on the stage, holding signs denouncing the supermodel's support of fur.

Event security staff whisked the women off the catwalk, but not before at least one of them managed to walk the length of it behind the 22-year-old lingerie-clad Brazilian beauty.

The printed signs read "Gisele: Fur Scum" and included the logo for PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Bundchen appeared surprised but continued walking.

The fashion show was being taped at The Armory in Manhattan for a November 20 broadcast on CBS. Producers stopped the music and redid Bundchen's segment after the protesters were removed.

Bundchen recently became the spokesmodel for fur designer Blackglama, but she told CNN the protest was unwarranted.

"I'm the biggest animal lover in the world," she said backstage after the show. "I was just doing my job. I'm a model. I don't even wear fur. They just want attention."

The fashion show featured only faux fur.

The protesters wore "all access" passes around their necks. Security removed them from the building but would not say whether they were arrested or charged.
