Pamela Anderson Takes on the Royals

Written by PETA | July 28, 2011

Pamela Anderson was as perplexed as we were to learn that despite Denmark‘s recent ban on cruel fox-fur farms, some in the country’s royal family still wear fur. Perhaps the Queen is harking back to her girlhood, when fur was integral to the royal robes, but since she enjoys all the other trappings of a modern life, it’s time to lay cruel stodgy fashions to rest. Pam penned a letter to Queen Margrethe II explaining that all fur means animal suffering

Undercover investigations into fur farms have shown cruelty to animals across the board, from Denmark to the United States. Most fur comes from China, where animals—including dogs and cats—are bludgeoned and even skinned alive for their fur, as seen in this short video. Minister Eva Kjer Hansen of Denmark stated, ‘Mink breeders break animal welfare rules. And that is unacceptable.’ Animals trapped in the wild are no better off: Many suffer for hours and even chew off their own limbs to escape.

Hopefully, Queen Margrethe II will join the scores of leading ladies, including Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni, who refuse to wear fur. Until she does, we have a feeling she hasn’t heard the last from Pam.

    ARRANCAR LA PIEL A UN ANIMAL , SEA PARA LO QUE SEA , ES UN ACTO CRUEL , INMORAL , INHUMANO , SALVAJE , PROPIO DEL PALEOLITICO . LAS PERSONAS QUE COMETEN ESTE CRIMEN , LO PAGARAN ALGUN DIA .

  • Janice says:

    I hear a lot about the fur industry, but rarely (if ever) hear anything about the leather industry. Doesn’t it deserve equal time? After all, people seem to refuse to give up wearing leather, because it’s so cool to wear leather, and it looks sexy. It looks better on the animal that was killed for it than it does on a human or a piece of furniture.

  • Penelope Ryan says:

    I wish anyone who wears animal fur would be skinned alive!!!!!!!

  • CARMEN CELEA says:

    stop killing animals !!!!!!!

  • Ruth says:

  • Christos christophy says:

    Denmark its a modern and forward thinking country. Please stop wearing fur and set an example to the rest of three country

  • Shirley says:

    Ali has it right. What people forget is that animals are absolutely necessary to this planet’s survival, and they have as much right to be here, without persecution, as any human.

  • Rev. Meg says:

    For a people that turned their backs on English and European royalty 235 years ago, some Americans spend a lot of time looking over their shoulders at it! Somehow I doubt that Queen Margrethe II, whose name I only know through the PETA site, cares what Pamela Anderson thinks about anything, let alone fur. If the people of Denmark want their Queen to stop wearing fur, let the people of Denmark put the pressure on her. I am concentrating my pressure about being fur free on the people living in and governing my country, the United States of America.

  • Susan Pew says:

    Right on! What century are you in England with you hunting foxes and wearing fur? You all should be electrocuted to see if it is Ok with you! They eat Foie Gras over there too without blinking an eye.

  • S says:

    Poor little fox. I wonder if the fur wearers have seen this. This is where your fur comes from. Fur worn by humans is a badge of cruelty.

  • isabella rottura says:

    Animals inhumane treatment just so others can adorn their fur is narcissistic and cruel. Stop this insane way of trying to make a statement. The statement is not a positive one about ones self who wears animal fur.
