Celebrity actor and vegan advocate Pamela Anderson is urging the Danish Prime Minister to ban fur. 

The Baywatch star’s demand follows multiple COVID-19 outbreaks on mink fur farms across Europe and the States. Moreover, the COVID-19 mink variant found on a Danish fur far could spark a new coronavirus pandemic, experts warn.

Anderson’s letter

Anderson has therefore written Mette Frederiksen a letter, saying ‘now is the time for action’. 

She wrote: “Like many people around the globe, I was alarmed to hear that a new, mutated strain of the novel coronavirus—one that could have ‘devastating consequences worldwide’ as you rightly pointed out—has been found in minks on Danish fur farms and that this strain has infected several humans.

“I hope you’ll respond by banning fur farms in Denmark, which would protect public health and spare countless animals miserable lives and violent deaths.”

‘Out of favor’

Anderson continues, describing fur as ‘out of favor’ even before the current pandemic. She says most designers and retailers such as Prada, Gucci and Ralph Lauren have already banned mink fur.

“Now is the time for action,” the star added. “Please, for everyone’s sake, ban [these] cruel, dangerous fur farms.”

Ban the fur industry in its entirety for the sake of the animals–the REAL victims. Then, worry about public health–since it’s the public which upholds animal-abusing industries by purchasing the products.
