ALS ice bucket challenge – supports experiments on animals
Pamela Anderson has refused to take part in the ice-bucket challenge craze, writing on Facebook that she ‘won’t fund an organisation that drills holes into live mice.’
After the former Baywatch actress was challenged to take part in the charity fundraising craze- which has taken the Internet by storm- she declined.
Pamela wrote on her Facebook page that she couldn’t raise money for the ALS charity after discovering that they test on animals.
She wrote: “Sorry- I can’t bring myself to do your Ice bucket challenge.”

“I enjoy a good dare- It’s always good to bring awareness – in fun, creative ways. I don’t want to take away from that…. But it had me thinking. Digging a bit deeper. I found that we may not be aligned in our messages.”
“So… I thought instead I’d challenge ALS to stop Animal testing.”
The PETA spokeswoman continued: “Recent experiments funded by the ALS Association, mice had holes drilled into their skulls, were inflicted with crippling illnesses, and were forced to run on an inclined treadmill until they collapsed from exhaustion. Monkeys had chemicals injected into their brains and backs and were later killed and dissected.”
