Yesterday, in a move that genuinely put animal welfare first, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) ruled that the EU ban on the import of seal fur and other products because of “moral concerns” is legal.
The WTO was not impressed by Canada’s far-fetched claim that the commercial seal slaughter can somehow be humane, meaning that Canada’s desperate attempt to revive the archaic and cruel practice of bludgeoning baby seals to death may have finally died. This victory comes on the heels of pleas from tens of thousands of PETA supporters and letters … Read more.
Pamela Anderson has just appealed to the Spanish Senate urging it to reject a bill to protect bullfighting and grant it cultural heritage status. The disgraceful proposal is currently under consideration by the Senate and has been opposed by hundreds of thousands of compassionate people both in Spain and internationally.
“Tormenting bulls for entertainment belongs to the Dark Ages, not the 21st century”, writes the former Baywatch star, who visited Spain last month. “Please take a compassionate stance against this cruel pastime by rejecting the bill to protect bullfighting. I guarantee that … Read more.
An eye-opening DVD narrated by Sir Paul McCartney and signed by the fair hand of Pamela Anderson could be yours! Two autographed copies of “Glass Walls” are up for grabs.
Glamorous animal rights activist Pamela signed the DVDs during a recent trip to the UK, where she spoke to the illustrious Cambridge Union about her long history of working with PETA on behalf of animals. The crowd of brainboxes also got their own screening of “Glass Walls”, an exposé of the way animals raised for food are treated which … Read more.
Pamela Anderson, who recently graced our screens in Dancing on Ice, has fired off a letter to Fortnum & Mason urging the retailer to stop selling vile foie gras.
“I am pretty tough”, she wrote, “but watching this disgusting process brought me to tears”.
The blonde bombshell was understandably distressed after seeing video footage of ducks flapping in pain and trying to lift their heads after their throats had been slit on foie gras farms that supply Fortnum & Mason – one of the few British stores that still stocks this … Read more.
Actor and animal rights campaigner Pamela Anderson just made a heartfelt appeal, urging the World Trade Organization (WTO) to uphold the EU’s ban on seal-fur imports.
As the baby-seal slaughter approaches, Pamela points out that there is no longer any market for seal fur, nor any justification for this cruel industry, in which sealers shoot and bash in the heads of helpless seals when they are just weeks old.

Pamela Anderson is the latest to write to politicians following PETA India’s discovery that Sunder, a young elephant held in a temple, is being abused by his handler.
Sunder is kept alone in a dark shed where he is confined to chains with sharp spikes. He has also suffered injuries from being jabbed in the right eye with a sharp, metal weapon.
After learning about the plight of Sunder, Pamela fired off a letter to Vinay Kore, a member of the legislative assembly of the Indian state of Maharashtra and the leader … Read more.
Who eats turkey at Christmas?! Not these compassionate celebrities, who have made the choice not to gobble down something that used to … gobble. This holiday, take a tip from the stars – extend the season of goodwill and compassion to animals by leaving them off your plate:

As Yvonne reported last month, the famous Pamela Anderson brought welcome attention to the threat to the 2013 deadline for banning the sale of animal-tested cosmetics in the EU by writing to the (slightly less famous) European Commissioner, John Dalli, about it on our behalf.
Since then, I’ve met the key people in Mr Dalli’s cabinet to discuss the 2013 ban, and one of them has also sent a reply to Pam. The good news is that Mr Dalli and his team clearly recognise the strength of feeling on this issue, … Read more.
PETA friend, super-vegan and animal saviour Pamela Anderson has written to European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy John Dalli urging him to honour the original 2013 deadline for banning the sale of cosmetics in the EU that have been tested on animals.
In her letter, which can be read in full here, Pamela states, “I love cosmetics, but there’s no reason for animals to suffer for lip gloss and eye-liner; those cruel tests are from another era”. She goes on to say, “Today, there are effective and 100 percent humane … Read more.
We are pleased to announce that the wonderful, big-hearted Pamela Anderson has been named PETA UK’s Person of the Year for 2010.
In just the past year, the list of Pam’s contributions to PETA UK has included promoting an irresistible – and racy – campaign poster in which her nearly nude body is shown painted with butcher markings, giving an address on animal rights at Oxford University and releasing a TV spot in which she is shown strip-searching air travellers for contraband (such as fur, exotic skins, leather and wool) that … Read more.
