Pamela Anderson Stands Up for Seals
Ex-Playmate and former 'Baywatch' star Pamela Anderson wants to save the seals from the annual hunt on Canada's East Coast.
The Canadian actress and animal rights activist is among several celebrities who are taking part in an ad campaign by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
Anderson visited the Ontario provincial legislature on Friday to introduce the new ads, that will also feature singer Sarah McLachlan, TV personality Kelly Osbourne and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
Other Canadians include Jayde Nicole (of 'The Hills') and 'Battlestar Galactica' stars Tricia Helfer and Grace Park.
As expected, there was a throng of media following Anderson. A few scattered "real" protestors shouted out in futile attempts to drown out the constant shuttering of camera flashes.
Anderson told 'Canada AM' that she's "angry" about the seal hunt, describing it as "barbaric and cruel" and "an embarrassment."
She also said the ads will appear in entertainment magazines and on blogs and will be tweeted in many languages starting this fall, to keep pressure on the government year-round instead of just during the spring when protests are expected.
Canada's East Coast seal hunt is the largest in the world, killing an average of 300,000 harp seals annually.
"State your feelings, be your own person," Anderson said, answering a question about what young people should do in response to the campaign.
We say thanks to Pammy for using her pups to help save the pups.
