My son and daughter are avid Animal Planet watchers. When I asked them about this, Anthony said there was a commercial featuring a tiger skin, and that it was a commercial for their show Animal Detectives.
The message was that "wherever there are animals in danger, these people are there to stop it". The spot also featured something with rhinoceros horns and bald eagles. Is this the ad you are referring to?
Other than that, I can't believe that the channel would feature an ad for animal furs. Somebody's losing his job over that boo-boo.
BTW, Hell603, love that "mouth-drop" smilie. He's awesome!
