Pam Promotes Compassion for Cows in India

Written by PETA | November 16, 2010

Lately, it seems like PETA’s BFF and honorary director Pamela Anderson is on the road more than Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in their heyday—she’s trekked from London to Tel Aviv and is now in Mumbai, where she’s a celebrity guest on the reality show Bigg Boss.

But as a superhero for animals, Pam can be counted on to speak out against cruelty wherever she goes, so she has sent a letter to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asking him to help the cows who are abused and slaughtered in the cruel and gruesome Indian leather trade.

“India’s laws prohibit animals from being crammed onto vehicles in such high numbers that their bones break, ban handlers from smearing chilli seeds into cows’ eyes and breaking their tails, and prevent animals from standing in their own blood and being hacked to pieces in front of each other while still conscious, yet all this continues to go on, involving countless animals every day,” Pam writes. “I am calling on every kind person in India and throughout the world to join me in rejecting all leather products in order to help put an end to the suffering.”

    Protection of Cows is the single-most important principle towards saving the whole world from both moral and spiritual degradation. Simply by protection of Cows all the wonderful benefits of religiosity and piety will be automatically achieved without any separate endeavor. Pls continue this valuable service with determination, thank you.

    Excellent I wish people will wake up to this and stop looking at the so called beauty of the end product and rather pay attention and think for a moment where that leather or fur really comes from what the animal has to suffer in order to makes humans feel so called good with their end product and the manufacturers make a profit with blood on their hands and so does the public who buy

  • Laura Wilson says:

    Let go of the leather.
