Pamela Anderson's 'Cruelty Doesn't Fly' Video
Pamela Anderson may have become famous by filling out a one-piece red swimsuit on Baywatch, but now she's starring in a new project, PETA's "Cruelty Doesn't Fly" video, along with Andy Dick, Steve-O, Nina Hagen, and Carol Leifer. In the new video, Pam stars as a no-nonsense fashion cop who is stripping travelers of their fashion faux pas—animal skins!
The Transportation Security Administration has an ever-changing list of rules and regulations for airline travel that can make boarding a plane a confusing process. But when it comes to cruelty-free fashion, the rule is quite simple: Don't wear animals!

Animal skins are sometimes used in ways that you might not expect. Fur comes from animals, including rabbits, foxes, minks, and chinchillas, who spend their short, miserable lives in cramped, filthy cages until they are slaughtered, or they are trapped and beaten to death in the wild.
Fur farmers and trappers often use the cheapest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gassing, bludgeoning, drowning, and poisoning. Many animals are still alive and able to feel pain when workers begin to rip the skin off their bodies.
Most leather is made from the skins of cattle and calves, but leather is also made from horses, kangaroos, sheep, lambs, goats, and pigs. Kid goats may be boiled alive to make gloves, and the skins of unborn calves and lambs—some purposely aborted and others taken from slaughtered pregnant cows and ewes—are considered especially “luxurious.”
Other “exotic” animals, such as alligators, are factory-farmed for their skins too. Alligators are often kept in cramped tanks above ground before they are butchered around the age of 2. On farms, they may be beaten to death with hammers and axes, sometimes remaining conscious and in agony for up to two hours after they are skinned.
Now that you know about the miserable living conditions and slaughter of animals killed for their skins, please sign the pledge that says cruelty doesn't fly with you!
I pledge never to wear fur, leather, wool, or exotic skins—because cruelty just doesn't fly.
