Bollywood Star Rejects Seal Slaughter

Written by PETA | July 5, 2011

Criticism of Canada’s annual baby-seal slaughter stretches from the States to Russia and from Hollywood to Bollywood. During a recent visit to Toronto, award-winning Bollywood film star Sonu Sood penned a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper asking him to end the massacre.

I was especially disheartened to learn that the slaughter, which takes place in Newfoundland, accounts for less than 1 percent of that area’s economy. I also read that only 10 percent of the quota was met this year because of a lack of demand. … I hope to hear that you will promote compassion by putting an end to the annual seal slaughter.


Sood joins world leaders Barack ObamaVladimir Putin, and The Dalai Lama as well as many other celebrities in speaking out against the clubbing and shooting of baby seals. Canada is feeling the heat—help us keep the pressure on until baby seals are safe.

    I was once talking to a Canadian friend of mine, who is usually pretty nice. She was talking about politics and I said “I hope whoever they put in next gets rid of those horrible seal hunts.” To my shock and dismay, she supported them! She justified it by saying it wasn’t really “the cute baby seals you see in pictures from animal rights groups, it’s the adult seals that eat all the fish.” As if it matters whether the seal is a baby or an adult. It left me with a bad opinion of her.

    Oh Yeah! That’s what I’m looking for; a strong body, a tender heart and a vegan kiss. The rest are just accessories.
