Pamela Anderson: No shark fin soup for you, Canada!
Pamela Anderson is calling upon her fellow Canadians to take shark fin soup off the menu for good. The star, whose teen sons think she's best known for saving animals, has some fishy friends to save.
Pamela Anderson has set her vegan eyes on banning shark fin soup from restaurant menus in Canada. Calling the practice of killing the fish just for the expensive delicacy indefensible, the sexy star is urging city officials to take action.
"Hooking sharks, pulling them from the water, cutting off their fins while they are still alive, then dumping them back into the ocean to suffer and die is appalling," Pamela Anderson told Global Toronto, describing the way sharks are maimed.
"To do so for a bowl of soup is indefensible."
Toronto voted to ban shark fin soup last year, and now the 45-year-old wants cities Richmond and Langley to do the same — though that's not to say she's entirely happy with Canada's largest city.
"It’s clear to me that marine parks, including the Toronto aquarium, are in no way educational," Pamela Anderson told GlobalToronto.com, ripping Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, which is set to open next year.
"Confining marine animals to tanks and separating them from their families and their natural surroundings, just so people can watch them swim in endless circles, teaches us far more about humans than it does about animals — and the lesson is not a flattering one."
It's all in a day's work for Pamela Anderson, who says her two teenage sons with ex-husband Tommy Lee know little of her scandalous past. Speaking of 16-year-old Brandon and 13-year-old Dylan, the former Playboy model and infamous sex-tape star explained to ContactMusic recently, "They know that Daddy's a rock star and Mommy rescues animals."
