Pamela Anderson Tells Leo Varadkar to Pull Up His ‘Stylish Socks’ and Ban Fur Farming
Following Ireland’s decision to ban wild-animal circuses, PETA ambassador Pamela Anderson has sent a letter to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar urging him to follow up with a ban on fur farming.
Ireland has three remaining fur farms, where an estimated 200,000 minks are imprisoned in squalid cages and denied the opportunity to roam, swim, and care for their young. This confinement causes them such psychological distress that many go insane and mutilate themselves. And when they’re around only 6 months old, up to 70 minks at a time are crammed into a box and gassed to death.
“I was thrilled to hear the news from my friends at PETA that Ireland will ban wild-animal circuses,” writes Pamela, who previously offered to have a drink with former Taoiseach Enda Kenny if a ban was put in place. “While I celebrate this victory and look forward to raising a glass of Guinness with your predecessor the next time I’m in town, I’m now looking to celebrate with you what I very much hope will be the next victory for animals: an end to fur farming in Ireland.”
“I can’t think of anyone more capable of creating history once again than you, Ireland’s youngest and first openly gay prime minister,” she continues. “Please, would you pull up those stylish socks of yours and announce a ban on fur farming in Ireland? I greatly look forward to clinking glasses with you when that happens.”
