Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has made a personal plea to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin asking him to help her ban the slaughter of baby seals in her native Canada.
The Russian leader was recently applauded by animal lovers all over the world for overseeing a ban on the hunting of young harp seals, and now Anderson has asked him to urge Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to follow his lead, reported femalefirst.co.uk
"The Canadian government has refused to budge on this issue despite widespread protests and international bans on the trade in baby seal skins. I collected thousands of signatures myself and personally delivered the petition to parliament, to no avail," said Anderson in her letter to Putin.
"You have been quoted as saying that seal hunting is 'a bloody industry that should have been banned long ago'. Please use your influence with Prime Minister Harper to help us stop the senseless slaughter of baby seals once and for all," she wrote.
