Watch out, Waldo—you've got some cute and cuddly competition when it comes to getting lost in a crowd. My new favorite game: Where's PETA's seal?
Yesterday, the Canadian government announced that it is increasing the quota for this year's seal slaughter and projecting a death toll of 388,200 (that's 50,000 more shattered seal skulls than last year). At almost the exact same time, this throng of PETA supporters and friends to seals gathered in Montréal for the International Day of Action for Seals. Bullhorns in hand, they made sure that the Canadian government heard their demand: The massacre of baby seals must end!
Add this compassionate crowd to the more than half a million people who have signed our save-the-seals petition and the result is clear: As long as blood is spilled on the ice floes, the protests will grow.

Well, through no particular design, the last couple of posts have been a little heavy—a lion mauling and a dead, angry chicken—so I figured we were long overdue for a bit of light relief here, which arrived in my inbox this morning in the form of a few beautiful photos of an anti-fur demonstration organized by an activist named Lucas in Montreal. Lucas' demo got some great coverage in the local media, including this story on 680 News. Decked out in their cavepeople costumes and holding signs with anti-fur messages, Lucas and co. made their way into pretty much every story about the recent fur-pushers' convention in Montreal. Love it.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
