Pamela goes into a cage to highlight misery of animals
THERE IS A PETITION TRYING TO GET A MILLION SIGNATURES, APPEALING FOR AN END TO CAGING ANIMALS FOR FARMING IN EUROPE
Actor Pamela Anderson joined animal rights campaigners in Paris, posing inside a cage to protest against the caging of animals in European farming.
The former Baywatch star was backing a campaign by Compassion in World Farming on Wednesday to get a million signatures in seven European Union countries in support of their bid to end the practice.
“I don’t think any animal belongs in a cage for entertainment or for what we wear or what we eat,” she told reporters. “All of our choices are important and we have to be more conscious of our decisions,” she said. “Animal welfare has come a long way, but we have a long way to go.” The petition is part of the European Citizens’ Initiative, which means that if they can raise a million signatures within a year, the European Commission will have to consider the issue.
The organisers say that they have the support of 140 organisations, including the Brigitte Bardot Foundation and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
Anderson is taking part in the French edition of a dance reality show.
Actor Pamela Anderson has long been an animal rights activist and an advocate of the vegan lifestyle
