Both Ke$ha and Iggy Pop love a good beat—but not in Canada, where baby seals are beaten, shot, and sometimes skinned alive for their fur. The musicians are just the latest celebs to star in PETA ads opposing Canada's annual seal slaughter. Explains Ke$ha, "Canada gets to be host to harp seals each year during their migration to the ice to give birth which is beautiful and peaceful. But because the babies' fur is so soft, there are people who club and brutally kill these young animals." She asks her fans to turn the heat up, up, up on the Canadian government by joining PETA's "Save the Seals" campaign.
Long-time PETA pal Iggy Pop wants to search and destroy the Canadian seal slaughter and save hundreds of thousands of baby seals every year. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said, "The terror and suffering that these defenseless, friendly, intelligent, inquisitive creatures endure to create fur jackets—it's immoral."
Watch Iggy's exclusive behind-the-scenes video and get his advice for how you can help end Canada' shameful massacre.
