Seal Slaughter Starts Today!

Written by PETA | March 23, 2009

This is it, people. If you haven’t written to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee yet, today is the day. Not only did Canada’s annual seal slaughter start today, they’ve actually increased the quota of seals that can be slaughtered. This means that seal killers can legally bash in the heads of up to 338,200 seals in the coming weeks. That’s right—the world’s biggest marine mammal slaughter just got bigger.

If you need a refresher course in just how disgusting the seal slaughter is, watch this video:

That’s what the Canadian government has the unmitigated gall to call “humane.” I kid you not.

    its a terrible way for animals to be killed. and how could anyone not be disturbed by all of the blood. now licensed hunting in the US seems to be okay to me. there are limits and regulations Animals kill and eat eachother. its part of life. but these men are not after food they cant honestly call this a sport and there is honestly nothing being gained from it. They get paid to run outside find and then beat a harmless animal to death. sadly there are those who dont care and those who even ENJOY the power they have over the seals. some people dont care about animals at all or other people for that matter. honestly the way people are raised has a serious effect on the way they see the world its a shame not everyone learns to respect animals or people for that matter. if you can take an innocent life and feel fine about it there is a serious problem.
