Canada's Annual Slaughter Will Cloud P.M.'s Visit

New York -- Holding a sign reading, "Harper: Stop the Seal Slaughter," a PETA
member wearing a seal costume will follow Canadian Prime Minister Stephen
Harper while he's in New York to receive a "Statesman of the Year"
award from the Appeal of Conscience Foundation. PETA's point? That Harper is
the last person who should be recognized for anything having to do with
a conscience because—even in the face of international condemnation—he
continues to support Canada's subsidized annual slaughter of baby seals.
When: Thursday, September 27, 5 p.m.
Where: Waldorf-Astoria, 301 Park Ave., New York
During the slaughter, tens of thousands of baby seals have their heads bashed
in or are shot. Sealers hook seals in the eyes, cheeks, or mouth and drag them
across the ice, often while the animals are still conscious. In recent years,
only a fraction of the animals permitted to be slaughtered have been killed
because the price of seal fur has plummeted as international outrage against
the slaughter has risen. The European Union, Russia, and the U.S. have banned
seal products, and many world leaders—including President Barack Obama and
Russian President Vladimir Putin—have spoken out against the massacre.
"The seal slaughter is a bloody stain on Canada's reputation, and Prime
Minister Harper can't escape that stain no matter where he goes," says
PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "PETA's 'spokesseal' won't
give up until the massacre is stopped once and for all."

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
