Pamela Anderson has a problem, and she’s taking it up with India’s Prime Minister.

The PETA activistBaywatch veteran, and all-around blonde bombshell, jetted to Mumbai late Monday night to make a three-day guest appearance on Bigg Boss, the Indian version of Big Brother. Also on her agenda? Writing a letter to Prime Minster Manmohan Singh, asking that he ban the production and sale of leather goods.

Anderson narrated a video for PETA ten years ago that exposed the cruel treatment of cattle in the Indian leather trade business. And now, on her first trip to India, she is pressing the issue again, and expressed that she has given up hope that the leather trade industry will take steps to reduce the suffering of animals.

In her letter she stated, “I am calling on every kind person in India and throughout the world to join me in rejecting all leather products in order to help put an end to the suffering. I am asking every individual – man, woman and child – never to buy leather shoes, bags, jackets, belts or anything else made of animal skin.”

It’s a strong message that she ended by saying, “I love India and the reverence for animals held by most Indians. I know they support me in asking: Will the government act at all to help these cattle?”

Good question.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
