Ex-Baywatch star and Hollywood star Pamela Anderson, who arrived in Mumbai for participating in a reality television show, has right away taken up the cause of the animals.
She has sent a letter to Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh about the leather trade in India that she says fills her with “horror.”
Anderson, who narrated PETA’s (People’s Ethical Treatment Toward Animals) video exposing horrendous cruelty to cattle in the Indian leather trade 10 years ago wants to urge people worldwide to reject all leather products.
In her letter to the PM she writes, “The reverence and love for animals felt by people in your beautiful country is deeply moving, yet one thing fills me and all compassionate people with horror: India’s leather trade.
It still profits from the skins of animals who have been transported to and killed in slaughterhouses, including illegal ones, in unspeakably cruel ways. In 10 years, it seems nothing has changed. I love India and the reverence for animals held by most Indians. Will the government act at all to help these cattle?”
It is good that the world star has taken up the cause as when Pamela speaks the world listens. She has fired off the letter to the PM as her primary interest is to save animals.
Let us support her.
