The founder of an animal rights group has announced that she will leave a piece of her neck to the king after her death.

Activist Ingrid Newkirk has also stated that in her will she will give one of her legs to the Grand National and a piece of her heart to Elon Musk.

Ms. Newkirk, 73, founded PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) more than 40 years ago and hopes to continue her commitment to animal welfare long after her death.

She has asked that the king be given a piece of her after her death because of the royal family’s long association with the pigeon sport – unless he sever all ties with the sport.

Peta claims that the lost birds often get their necks broken after surviving flights across the English Channel and other races. Many die in such races.

Ms Newkirk has also asked in her updated will that part of her bare skin be given to the Ministry of Defense when they still use real bearskin for their King’s Guards caps when faux fur is readily available.

She left a piece of her heart to billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk so he could clone it in response to animal testing at his brain implant company Neuralink.

Ms Newkirk has also requested that one of her legs be removed and broken after her death and be displayed at Aintree Racecourse during the Grand National to draw attention to the injuries sustained by the horses during the famous race.

Animal rights activists have called for a ban on jumping and tighter safety measures in the sport after three horses died at this year’s Grand National Festival.

Ms Newkirk’s other requests include submitting her trachea to the management of the Crufts dog show over allegations of promoting breeds with respiratory disabilities, and an ear to the King of Spain in protest at the country’s bullfights, in which the matador often cuts the bull’s ears as a trophy.

Ms Newkirk said: “On his deathbed, they asked Bob Hope where he wanted to be buried and he replied, ‘Surprise me.'”

“In my case, when I die, I hope to continue surprising those who harm animals, sparking conversations about speciesism, and speaking out against animal abuse.”
