Canada Goose’s 800-plus employees got a surprise in their in-boxes on Tuesday: a letter from “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson.
An animal rights activist who has backed People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Anderson urged the coat maker’s employees to “use your unique position” to stop Canada Goose from using coyote fur as trim on its pricey jackets, according to the e-mail, a copy of which was obtained by The Post.
The e-mail addresses were gathered from a “sympathetic supporter,” a PETA spokesman told The Post.
PETA has targeted the Toronto outfit for more than a year. At the company’s March 16 initial public offering, PETA organized a protest outside the NYSE, with activists dressed up as mangled coyotes and bloodied geese.
To pull at the heartstrings of Canada Goose employees, Anderson’s e-mail includes a link to a video of coyotes struggling in traps.
There is no “validity” to the claims of animal cruelty, a Canada Goose spokeswoman said. The company’s shares are up 5 percent since the IPO, to $22.61, at Tuesday’s close.
