Pamela Anderson Shocked by Animals' Appalling Condition in Indian Institute

The animal lover and the spokesperson for PETA is urging the director of All India Institute of Medical Sciences to retire the old monkeys and rabbits.

Actress Pamela Anderson has urged officials at India's top medical institute to retire old monkeys used for scientific research after learning the aging animals are kept in cages for up to 20 years. The "Baywatch" beauty, a longtime supporter of People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), was appalled to see video footage allegedly showing sick monkeys and rabbits locked up and in distress at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

So she's penned a letter to AIIMS director R. C. Deka urging the facility's bosses to free the animals. Anderson writes, "It broke my heart to see the suffering. The animals suffering behind closed doors at AIIMS must endure this nightmare every day. (The monkeys are kept in) cramped, barren, and rusty cages for years on end. Please, won't you at least agree to retire the animals who have been at AIIMS the longest to a sanctuary?"

Animal-lover Anderson has previously asked India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to ban leather in the country, branding the trade in hides "unspeakably cruel".
