Playboy model and PETA activist Pamela Anderson has decided to stand up for the voiceless stray dogs in the Ukraine. She called on the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) to react to the mass slaughter of homeless animals by Ukrainian “street-cleaning squads” ahead of the Euro 2012 football tournament.

The tournament will be hosted by the Ukraine and Poland. Anderson asked Michel Platini, the UEFA president, to give publicity to the reality and seriousness of the slaughters of homeless animals happening on the streets of the Ukraine. She became aware of the mass slaughters taking place after PETA unveiled footage of the “street-cleaning squads” getting rid of stray dogs by surrounding them and then hanging them. The actress wrote a letter to Plantini on behalf of PETA’s German branch.

Anderson’s letter to Platini reads, “As the event’s host, UEFA is responsible for the animals’ sufferings for the same of this football championship. UEFA should be a role model for all parties involved in this event and take a stand in favor of protecting Ukraine’s homeless animals. Please show the ‘red card’ to cruelty to animals by demanding that the Ukrainian government stop the mass killings of homeless dogs.”

PETA Germany claims that many football players have gone public in criticizing Ukrainian authorities for the torture of homeless animals and have demanded that more humane methods be sought out to deal with the animal crisis.

It is estimated that 7,000 dogs a month are being shot, poisoned or hanged in the Ukraine as part of the “clean-up” ahead of the UEFA football game. The animal cruelty was exposed late last year by The People, yet six months later the cruelty is still going on and puppies are being piled up in bins and thrown away like trash after being crippled by poison.

PETA’s Ben Wilson told The People, “While the country is spending hundreds of millions of Euros building shiny new stadiums, the dogs are paying the ultimate price for this cruel country to host Euro 2012. We urge football fans to register their disgust and help us end the massacre, which is tainting a beautiful game with the blood of thousands of innocent animals.”
