Pamela Anderson demands action over Ukraine animal killings

Actress Pamela Anderson has waded into the furore over animal slaughter in Ukraine ahead of the country's hosting duties for the Euro 2012 football tournament, urging the sport's bosses to condemn the scandal.

Staff at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) revealed harrowing film footage earlier this year showing the Eastern European nation's 'street-cleaning squads' rounding up stray dogs to be shot, poisoned or hanged.

The eyes of the soccer world will be on Ukraine in the summer when the European Football Championship is staged in the country, and former Baywatch beauty Anderson is calling for action to end the animal killings ahead of the tournament.

She has written to former French footballer Michel Platini, who is now president of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), urging him to publicly denounce officials behind the street clean-up.

In a letter on behalf of the German branch of PETA, Anderson writes, "As the event's host, UEFA is responsible for the suffering that animals endure for the sake of this football championship. UEFA should function as a role model for all parties involved in this event and take a stand in support of protecting Ukraine's homeless animals.

"Please show cruelty to animals the 'red card' by demanding that the Ukrainian government stop the mass killings of homeless dogs."
