London, March 14 (IANS) Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has joined animal rights crusaders to free apes kept in captivity in the US state of Florida.
Anderson has written an open letter to Florida Governor Charlie Crist pointing out “roadside zoos” where she says the apes are kept in poorly built enclosures, reports.

Anderson wrote: “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.”
