Is the Seal Slaughter Over?
Good news: Canada’s annual commercial seal slaughter ended last night—and more than 80 percent of the seals who had been marked for death were spared this year.
Thanks to a huge PETA push and the hard work of caring people like you, worldwide demand for seal fur is plummeting. We worked to get the European Union to ban the sale of seal products, and the U.S. Senate unanimously passed U.S. Senate Resolution 84, which calls for an end to the annual slaughter. There are few places left for sealers to sell these wretched pelts.
But we must keep up the fight until Canada stops the slaughter altogether, and that means year-round pressure! PETA has big plans to do just that. And you can help by staying active online and in your local community. Let’s stop this barbaric massacre forever.
