British actor Jamie Bamber is the latest celebrity to lend his fame and skin to PETA in order to raise awareness of animal abuse.
The Jamie Bamber PETA ad highlights the inhumane killing of black bears in order to make the headpieces for the Queen’s Guards at Buckingham Palace. Tragically, the whole skin of a black bear is needed to make one of these hats, which are merely a ceremonial accessory.
Jamie Bamber urges us to, “Bare skin, not bearskin.” I am not sure I would want those Queen guards to bare their skin in the cold, but they could use faux fur to make the infamous hats.
Jamie Bamber is most famous for his role as Captain Lee ‘Apollo’ Adama on Battlestar Galactica.
