Please Urge Canada to End Its Shameful Seal Slaughter

The end of Canada’s annual baby seal slaughter is near. Over the last few years, all major markets have banned seal-fur imports, including the U.S., the European Union, Mexico, Taiwan, and even Russia, which had been importing 95 percent of Canadian seal pelts. There are no remaining markets for seal fur—the only reason the Canadian government continues to defend this dead industry is because political parties crave Newfoundland’s swing seats in Parliament. But as this editorial shows, even local sentiment is turning, and lack of markets has led Canadian officials to seriously examine whether the slaughter should end.

We’ve reached a tipping point. The time is now to urge Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Gail Shea, Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird, and Minister of International Trade Ed Fast to help bring the commercial seal slaughter to an immediate end by supporting a government buyout.

for those who hunt me because i am a seal
did you ever stop to think just how i feel
i just want to sit on my rocks and ice
if you would leave me be, that would be so nice
my fur is mine, not yours for the taking
just look at all the red blood you are making
go back to your homes, your families, your wives
and leave us seals alone to enjoy ours lives.

    And Sweden will open seal hunting and trade in seal parts. The so called animal protection NGO, the Swedish Society for Protection Of Animals , do support the hunting. Animal NGOs abandon animals! I called them a very nasty phone call and they told me that they would call the police LOL! Of course nothing happened!

      OMG, just like WWF – supposed to be for the animals yet just want them dead. Dirty, lying thieves! I am so sorry for the nonsense you have to put up with!
