As of April 1, products from Canada’s commercial seal slaughter will be illegal in Switzerland — and PETA Honorary Director Pamela Anderson, who wrote to Swiss officials when the ban was set in motion in 2014, is celebrating the move.

“As a proud Canadian, I’m delighted that Switzerland has just become the 35th country to ban seal products,” she wrote. “With no market anywhere else in the world, the only people to benefit from the spring slaughter will be the owners of the warehouses where thousands of dusty pelts are piled up. That’s why I join PETA and sensible citizens across Canada in the hope that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will stop subsidizing the seal slaughter and put this dreadful issue behind us.”

PETA notes that the failing commercial seal slaughter costs the government $7 million in subsidies every year.
