Canada’s Seal Hunt is Deplorable

My sister alerted me to Canada’s annual seal hunt. From what I’ve been able to find out, it seems cruel and unnecessary. Seals are either shot or clubbed to death, primarily for the fur. Killing mammals for food is one thing, but killing them for their fur seems ludicrous. Even more disappointing is that the Canadian government shows no sign of restricting it or banning it; in fact, they raised the “quota” of allowable kills this year.

Please read about it at the site of the Humane Society of the United States. They have ways to help, including contacting the Canadian or U.S. government, and participating in a boycott of Canadian seafood.

  2. Check out http://www.Friction.tv to see the graphic seal hunt footage on HSUS’s and IFAW’s video channels. It is just horrible!

  3. I don’t think I could bring myself to watch it, unfortunately.
