Photos: People branded to show solidarity with animals

About 30 people have brand themselves worldwide, and thousands more support their effort to make the case for animal rights, according to a member of the group.

A public branding in Tel Aviv last year launched the movement, called 269Life. Since then it has spread, with brandings in Italy, the United States, Argentina and elsewhere. On Wednesday, 11 people branded themselves in the Czech capital, Prague.
