PAMELA Anderson posed inside a cage in Paris to protest the caging of animals in European farming. She was backing a campaign by Compassion in World Farming to get a million signatures in seven EU countries in support of their bid to end the practice.
The petition is part of the European Citizens’ Initiative, which means that if they can raise a million signatures within a year the European Commission will have to consider the issue.
The former actress said: “I don’t think any animal belongs in a cage for entertainment or for what we wear or what we eat. All of our choices are important and we have to be more conscious of our decisions.”
The organizers say they have the support of 140 organizations, including in France the Brigitte Bardot Foundation and PETA.
Anderson is currently taking part in the French edition of the television program Dancing with the Stars.
