Skip to comments.Pammie closes in (Pamela Anderson and the seal harvest)

Wherever does Pamela Anderson find the time?
You’d think competing her tush off on Dancing With The Stars and hawking her “Malibu Pink” perfume and “veggan boots” would keep her busy enough.
Now, in her ongoing quest to kill off the Canadian seal hunt, Pammie’s turned serious investigator, filing a series of access to information requests in an effort to prove the industry costs taxpayers money.
Anderson is obviously frustrated that a great hue and cry didn’t go up from coast to coast demanding an end to the harvest when she first embraced the cause.
An international campaign against the seal hunt has been extremely effective, resulting in an EU ban on East Coast seal products.
Despite this, most Canadians have refused to be horn-swoggled by misinformation spread by the likes of Anderson, Paul McCartney and his ex and Brigitte Bardot.
Gov.-Gen. Michaelle Jean chowed down on raw seal heart during a visit to the Arctic, an event which earned her the real, if astonished, admiration of Canadians.
When seal was served in the parliamentary restaurant, MPs from all parties showed up for a taste and a photo-op.
Canadians mostly refuse to buy into the myths surrounding the annual hunt, which provides part-time employment for about 6,000 people.
Harp seals are not endangered. In fact, the population is at its highest level in 30 years — an increase of several million animals, according to Fisheries and Oceans.
Harvesting of those adorable baby seals has been outlawed since 1987.
The ongoing public and political support for the seal hunt is apparently behind this attempt by PETA — assisted by Anderson — to persuade Canadians their tax dollars are going down the drain.
“It’s no longer an issue of concern just for animal advocates but for any Canadian disgusted by government waste,” Anderson told The Canadian Press. “And for the many Canadians who travel abroad, like me, it’s a huge embarrassment.”
Anderson, who hails from Ladysmith on Vancouver Island, should know most Canadians aren’t so gullible.
The seal hunt isn’t pretty, but neither is what goes on in meat-packing plants in communities around the globe.
Besides, we’re a tolerant lot. Pamela’s no stranger to the skin trade herself, but Canadians don’t get red-faced about the ongoing sexcapades of the former Playboy playmate and Baywatch actress.
We’re not about to be intimidated by international pooh-poohing that’s fired up by falsehoods and half-truths
Even though we’ve become an increasingly urban society, we remain close enough to our heritage to understand that hunting and fishing for food and to earn a livelihood are honourable occupations.
The Access to Information requests are an attempt to unearth evidence the seal hunt brings in less revenue than the government spends defending it and promoting seal products overseas.
Ironically, Fisheries Minister Gail Shea suggests the diminishing income earned by the hunters is due in large part to PETA’s longstanding “misinformation” campaign that led to the European ban.
Now PETA’s moving in for the kill.
If they succeed in destroying a significant income source for people living in coastal communities, it will likely draw applause from arrogant Europeans and misinformed animal lovers.
And, Anderson will have a little more time to flog her personally signed “Pammie” footwear, made without animal products, at $359 a pop.
Heard a great joke last week - “So a baby seal walks into a club.”
Do you think PETA would ever sponsor ‘Deadliest Catch’?
Blubber chest blubbering about the harvesting of blubber.
Wait, I just saw some pics....NOT aging well...... cancel the rules..
I don’t believe you, pics or its not true. ;-)
How does Pamela find time to save seals between her meth binges?
What a catch she must be...
People eat cod. People eat seals. Seals eat cod. If we don’t keep the seal population manageable, they eat too much cod, then there isn’t enough cod for people. I say, whoever is higher up on the food chain makes the rules. Sorry seals.
Pics you say? Here you go! She sure is pretty, ain't she? I mean with those pin point pupils and that boa costrictor sized upper lip...
Hey Pam thats fascinating!! Now, can you jiggle for us again?
Looks like that Hep A is starting to cause some damage...
Hallucinogens dialate the pupils.
Meth is a CNS stimulant.
Nature Girl ain't natural.
(BTW - I didn't know she was a meth head?)
Dear Pam, I was once in my 20’s and 30’s too. You aren’t.
Your are no longer HOT. Get OVER it!
PETA, well what can I say. Eat dirt.
Can anyone provide a side by side picture of Pammie and Carrot Top. I think they have morphed into the same creature.
RE: “Looks like that Hep A is starting to cause some damage...”
She has Hep C -— much much worse!
Right it’s a CNS, and will dilate the pupils. Downers will constrict the pupils.
