London, June 19 (ANI): Natascha Kampusch, who made headlines around the world when she was able to escape her kidnapper after being held for eight years in a dungeon in Austria, is reportedly in talks to strip off to promote animal rights.

After becoming the new face of PETA in Austria, Kampusch is apparently planning to bare all to protest against animal cruelty, reports The Sun.

A PETA spokesman said: “It’s possible, but not arranged yet.”

Yesterday, the 21-year-old sent a letter to Ilse Aigner, the agriculture minister in Germany where the PETA campaign is being organised, asking for freedom of zoo animals.

“It is up to you whether social, intelligent and wonderful creatures are to be freed from their chains and cages where ruthless people keep them.

“The animals would, if they could, flee as I did, because a life in captivity is a life full of deprivation,” she wrote.

Kampusch escaped from a basement in Strasshof just outside Vienna in August 2006 after being kidnapped and held there for eight years by Wolfgang Priklopil. (ANI)
