Where’s PETA’s Seal?

Written by PETA | March 16, 2010

Watch out, Waldo—you’ve got some cute and cuddly competition when it comes to getting lost in a crowd. My new favorite game: Where’s PETA’s seal?

Protest for Seals

 

Yesterday, the Canadian government announced that it is increasing the quota for this year’s seal slaughter and projecting a death toll of 388,200 (that’s 50,000 more shattered seal skulls than last year). At almost the exact same time, this throng of PETA supporters and friends to seals gathered in Montréal for the International Day of Action for Seals. Bullhorns in hand, they made sure that the Canadian government heard their demand: The massacre of baby seals must end!

Add this compassionate crowd to the more than half a million people who have signed our save-the-seals petition and the result is clear: As long as blood is spilled on the ice floes, the protests will grow.

    I AM SHOCKED AT THE TORTURE OF THE MOST INNOCENT BABY ANIMALS IN THE WORLD! IT MAKES ME SO ANGRY THAT THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT ALLOWS THIS TO CONTINUE! I DON’T PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM CANADA OR CARE TO EVER VISIT THERE AGAIN. HAD I HAD KNOWN THIS WAS GOING ON I WOULDN’T HAVE GONE THERE THE FIRST TIME!! I HAVE NO RESPECT FOR BARBARIANS AS YOURSELVES.

  • Jon says:

    If we all unite we can end this using any means necessary.

  • adara bauman says:

    This is ridiculious! At the same time that the seal population is sinking and breeding territory is being lost to climate change and bad land managment they are going to kill more seals!!! I have many canadian friends who eat meat and don’t care to much about the enviorment and not one of them supports this! The Canadian government is insert favored explativecrazy!!!!

  • Brenda Robinson says:

    I am so ashamed of Canada. It is so frustrating and heartbreaking that this still continues when the MAJORITY of Canadians want it to STOP! It is criminal. This is NOT democracy!

  • lisa says:

    I think the Canadian Government increased the death toll by 50000 just to outrage people even more and to prove some kind of point that they will still carry on with this barbaric slaughter year after year. But as the ice levels are the lowest ever i doubt there will be a living baby seal left after the slaughter. With the US and the EU banning seal products and a drop of sealers actually going out these poor animals will be slaughtered for no reason We will certainly see a decline in population we try to educate people and our children in protecting animals in the wild. It will be a very very sad day when the hunt starts and i wish all the best to the organisations that go out there and try to stop the boats wish i could do that.

  • John says:

    So Oregon and Washington are doing the same thing only we’re protecting the fishing industry while doing it now before anyone bashes me for saying this no pun intended the salmon fishing in the Pacific Northwest actually plays a big role in the economy of the west coast.

  • Maddi Koch says:

    WHY? that’s my only question why can’t they leave these poor harmless creatures alone

  • Lily Collins says:

    I’m honestly astonished this is still legal. It’s barbaric and unnecessary. What a dark age we live in.

  • mackenzie allen says:

    I think that this is horrible that they do this to poor baby seals. They have a right to live just like any other animal in this country. Why would they do this to baby seals? I think candians should change there law and not torture seals and kill almost 400000 baby seals! THis is my personal opinion and im doing this for a social studies project and it would be very nice if you all would write back.

  • Carla says:

    WAKE UP YOU DAMN GOVERNMENT. CAN’T YOU SEE THAT THIS IS GOING TO HURT YOU AND YOUR COUNTRY IN THE END? EVERYONE IS AGAINST THIS EVEN YOUR OWN PEOPLE. THIS SICK AND BARBARIC SO CALLED TRADITION NEEDS TO STOP. I WILL NEVER VISIT YOUR COUNTRY UNTIL IT STOPS. EVER!!!!! LET THESE POOR SEALS LIVE FOR GOD’S SAKE!!!!!!!!!

  • Maddie says:

    Poor seals this makes me so mad!! The government can’t just turn a blind eye on our protests!

  • Patricia Prest says:

    Stop this blood bath this is unforgivable you would slaughter these animals in the names of all of the canadian people….

  • Marnie says:

    T H A N K Y O U P E T A ! ! !

  • Aneliese says:

    Agreed with Alice! I cannot believe the ignorant nerve of our government.

  • Andre Inglis says:

    We will win this! Our job is to keep a positive attitude and continue to educate the public.

  • Scott says:

    Can’t Paul Watson go up there with the fine Sea Shepard crew and draw some serious attention to this horrific slaughter?? I will not buy anything or visit Canada while this takes place. Vermont maple syrup tastes damn fine!

  • Sandra Conti says:

    It’s clear that Satan the Devil has chosen certain people from this country to kill these innocent animals the are behind this disgusting crime. I wish I was there and participated in this protest..it breaks my heart.

  • NT says:
