Hollywood sweetheart Jude Law is one of the latest celebrities to team up with PETA and take a stand against animal cruelty.

While some celebrities choose to focus on the horrors of the meat industry, Jude Law is very much preoccupied with putting an end to the Canadian seal hunt once and for all.

According to PETA's official website, it was only a few days ago when the actor sent a letter to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and asked that the EU-wide ban on seal fur be uphold.

“I'm writing to urge the panel to uphold this ban, which is in line with the wishes of compassionate people all around the world, including the majority of European citizens,” Jude Law's letter reportedly read.

Furthermore, “Even local sentiment is turning, and a lack of markets has led Canadian officials to seriously examine whether the slaughter should end.”

The WTO is expected to hold a final hearing concerning this issue this coming April 29.
