Hollywood’s most outspoken animal activist Pamela Anderson is now speaking out on the controversial death of Harambe the Gorilla — urging us all to ‘make our voices heard’. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details.
Saddened by the killing of Harambe, the 17-year-old gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo on May 29, Pamela Anderson, 49, is calling for a “ban” on all zoos and an end to keeping any animals in captivity, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY reports. The actress hopes this tragedy prompts us all to take action and protect our “beautiful” animals.
Pamela blames zoos for putting “people and animals at risk”. “The confinement and breeding of wild animals for zoos to make money is old fashioned and wrong. I’m hoping virtual zoos will be a thing of the future. To see animals in their natural habitats using 360 cameras is more rewarding and educational. Nothing normal happens in captivity. #endcaptivity,” she said in an EXCLUSIVE statement to HollywoodLife.com. “All animals should retire to sanctuaries world wide. If you feel the same – please ban all zoos and aquariums. This is a good time to stand up for the voiceless. It doesn’t cost anything to go outside and respectfully take in the beauty of your local wildlife – if it’s the beach, the countryside or the city. All animals are beautiful, interesting and important to the survival of all species.” Way to go Pamela!
Pamela is not the only celebrity heartbroken over Harambe’s killing. Kaley Cuoco, 30, didn’t hold back on her Instagram, writing “If you watch the footage, you see this gorgeous animal holding that child’s hand. Do with that what you will. As sad at this makes me, a part of me is happy the amazing creature doesn’t have to live in captivity another day.” She goes on to call the incident “another senseless horrendous animal being killed over people not using their brains.” So sad!
