Pamela Anderson Fights to Free Chimps in Florida

Pamela Anderson may be a hot mess lately, but in between making headlines for partying, hookups, and wardrobe malfunctions, she finds time to fight for animal rights.

Pam has written an open letter to Florida governor Charlie Crist, targeting "road side zoos" in the state. She wants to free apes kept in "squalid" captivity in the state.

She claims chimpanzees and other animals are kept in inadequate enclosures, and the governor needs to do something about it.

On behalf of herself, and PETA, pay writes:

"With so many frustrated great apes stewing in squalid facilities in Florida, it is only a matter of time before a similar tragedy strikes your state.

"PETA and I appeal to you to take action to prevent Florida's roadside zoos from keeping great apes and to ensure that these intelligent primates are transferred to approved sanctuaries to live out the remainder of their lives in suitable surroundings."

Pam was also in Florida this weekend to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida.
