This Seal Wears Many Hats

Written by PETA | June 1, 2010

It’s been a whirlwind week for PETA’s seal. To keep pressure on Canada to stop letting people shoot baby seals and bash their heads in, PETA’s sombrero-sporting seal followed Mexican President Felipe Calderón around to all his stops during his visit to Canada on Thursday.




President Calderón’s visit received tons of media attention, and PETA’s seal even got a shout-out from Canwest News Service. The seal almost got to shake hands—er, flippers—with President Calderón, but I’m sure that the seal would have preferred to give him a hug, considering that Mexico banned seal imports years ago.

On Monday, PETA’s seal was back in action—this time wearing a yarmulke—while tailing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to Canada.




What hat will PETA’s seal wear next? Stay tuned for updates. And in the meantime, why not let Canadian officials know that the cruel seal slaughter makes you want to blow your top.
