AceShowbiz - Pamela Anderson has urged the artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival to sever ties with bosses at outerwear company Canada Goose over their cruelty to coyotes and geese.
The clothing company has sponsored the festival in Anderson's native Canada for years, but she has urged Cameron Bailey to find another partner and reject the brand's "fur-and-feather blood money".
In a strongly-worded letter to Bailey, the actress and activist writes: "Canada Goose's 'standards' allow for coyotes to suffer for days in steel traps with a broken or bleeding leg before the trapper returns to shoot or bludgeon them to death, and the company's jackets are stuffed with the down feathers of birds who died violently."
"I urge you to make this year the last one in which you have Canada Goose as a sponsor, just as the Berlin International Film Festival cut ties with the company in 2017."
Animal rights protests are planned for Thursday's (September 05) opening night and throughout the festival.
