Please Help Stop the Slaughter

 

 

 

Right now, on the ice floes of Eastern Canada, hundreds of thousands of baby seals are about to die.

 

In just a few short days, seals as young as 12 days of age will be clubbed and beaten to death.  The sparkling white Canadian ice floes will soon run red with their blood.

 

Other seals will be shot down with a rifle in open water, desperately fighting for their lives.

 

Most seal pups lay on the ice alone and helpless, crying in anguish before they are violently cut down.

 

Many of them will be left to suffocate under the ice, or be yanked onto boats with sharp metal hooks.

 

Ninety five percent of the seals killed will be less than three months old.

 

And some of these baby seals will even be skinned alive; their carcasses left to rot on the now blood stained ice.  This hunt is strictly for their fur.

 

There is no economic or environmental reason to justify Canada’s continuing annual commercial seal hunt. This is a cruel and unnecessary hunt, opposed by the majority of Canadians, and now, by many people the world over.

 

And this government supported hunt isn’t designed to promote science or meaningful employment for Newfoundlanders: by the Canadian government’s own calculations, this annual seal hunt produces less than one percent of the Newfoundland GDP and, only about $1,000 per seal clubber per year.

 

A hunt such as this that is so nationally and internationally offensive is of no use to Newfoundland or to Canada.

 

World-leading marine scientists also agree that the current high quotas for killing seals are putting the harp seal population at serious risk of being depleted – forever.

 

As many seals are killed today as during the 1950s and 60s when commercial sealers significantly reduced the seal population.

 

What You Can Do

 

1) Write a Letter to Your Congressmen

 

The Canadian government still believes that no one cares enough about this seal hunt for them to end it. Prove them wrong. Send a letter to your legislators urging them to call for an immediate end to Canada’s commercial seal hunt before hundreds of thousands more baby seals die a very unnecessary and a very cruel death.

 

2) Sign the Petition to Prime Minister Harper

 

As the newly elected Prime Minister of Canada, he has an unparalleled opportunity to put an end to this cruel and inhumane annual slaughter of more than 300,000 seals on the ice floes off Newfoundland and Labrador. A link to this petition is enclosed below.

 

3) Boycott Canadian Seafood until This Slaughter is Finally Ended

 

More and more, the citizens of the world are showing their opposition to this seal hunt, as the growing success of the Canadian seafood boycott and the recent bans on seal products in Greenland and Italy show.

 

Please make a firm commitment to do everything in your power to end this extremely barbaric and economically unnecessary hunt as soon as possible.

Ed, this breaks my spirit.. I know you have a voice and it can be powerful.. As long as there is mankind, there will be pain. On the other hand, I strongly believe in the power of prayer . Not jibber religious junk.. I don't talk religion, I talk about my thing inside my soul that is the center and does hear prayers.. I send forth light, healing, love, and hope to you today and yes, I will pray untill these beautiful creaters no longer feel earths bondage, struggle...I am very intuitive and I do feel that you indeed feel all life pain. May Almighty bless you and your wonderful voice for change.. Remember, all animal spirit goes on to the heavens, the afterlife.. There, they will reunite with us..They will forver rein in their favorite places..What a glorious day it will be...Thank you for your heart of gold...

love and prayers, joanne

Oh Kay, well then, tell them to "Seal this" - F.U."R" (rude finger motion). Does that help?

It is a disgusting, loathsome and barbaric act, these men are so cruel and heartless, I hope some day they all pay for it heavily. I signed the petition, along with the two for the wolves and the grizzlies. There will be no wildlife left for future generations if this madness doesn't stop. Canada, Norway and Japan should all be boycotted in some way, the two latter for their whaling practices.

It is terrible and heartbreaking and I still remember, more than 20 years ago when we first signed petitions. It is frustrating to realise that no matter how hard we try to protect the innocent creatures, the law and power remains on the side of money and greed. An important article!

It's going to take a firm committment, and a mass movement in people's perceptions and actions to stop this wholesale slaughter of innocent baby seals, which has been going on for ages !
It's time to stop this barbaric bloodbath, and I personally think the firms and contractors responsible for this atrocity, should be punished in the courts for wanton slaughter of defenceless animals !
We need to pray for a National Movement or Crusade around the world against this horror !
I personally would advocate a boycott of all Canadian foods, that would get the message over for sure !
Hit them in the pocket , where it hurts most !!
Thanks Ed for raising this very important issue again
Peter
