MP: Seal Slaughter’s Days May Be Numbered

Written by Alisa Mullins | January 24, 2012

It’s not over yet, but Iggy Pop, Perez Hilton, Kelly Osbourne, Pamela Anderson, Sarah McLachlan, Diane Warren, and all the people who have spoken out, worn the PETA shirts, and appeared in our ads in the last year have brought us closer to the end of the Canadian seal slaughter. Just weeks before the annual slaughter is set to resume, Ryan Cleary, a member of the Canadian Parliament who represents one of the regions in which the seal slaughter takes place, has acknowledged that the tremendous outcry against beating and shooting baby seals has him questioning the future of the bloody massacre. Says Mr. Cleary: “Part of our history is also whaling, for example, and the day came when the whaling industry stopped. Now, is that day coming with the seal hunt? It just may be.”

Cleary’s statement comes just weeks after Russia announced that it was taking steps to ban the import of Canadian harp-seal fur, a move that came after Pamela Anderson led an international appeal on PETA’s behalf.

Polls have consistently shown that most Canadians oppose the seal slaughter, and as Cleary noted, the industry is an increasing liability for Canada that the country is having more and more difficulty defending.

  • dora vieira says:

    only stupid people can do what you are doing with these animals, stop this killing

  • Carol Gabor says:

    This is so inhuman, that the MEN doing this are inhuman also. I really have said this before, I will not travel to Canada until this stops, and if more people in the WORLD would do this, which would be a tremendous loss of Tourism, maybe loss of money might stop this. I use to come up to ski in winter with my family and enjoy the summers in Canada, but that has stopped.

    It is horrific, barbaric, & totally cold hearted to treat such prescious, innocent, & defenseless creatures in such an evil manner. How can anyone have the heart to harm these defenseless creatures? Just look into their big sweet eyes. They are so beautiful. It is heartbreaking. It is absolutely unconsionable. These are God’s special, & prescious sweet creatures, & it is a sin to hurt, & harm his wonderful animals. Please end this terrible act, & let these wonderful creatues live in peace.
