  • Canadian Seal Hunt

    I just now read about the upcoming Canadian seal hunt and its previous episodes. I was horrified. The short version- they're going to kill thousands of seals just for their fur. I found a petition online and signed it, and if you feel alright doing so (probably some people feel irked about signing online petitions), I urge you to sign it too.

    PS- mods, I'm not sure whether this is against the rules or not, and I apologize if it is.

      Yeah, people up here are pretty mad about it, we've been urging the government to put a stop to it but it's a huge tradition in that area, not much to do in Newfoundland...

        The Animals rights associations are not honest at all about it. The white young seals that they always show as the victims? Since 1987, its illegal to hunt them, yet, associations still play on people's feelings by showing their picture.

        Their population has grown 500% since the 70's. The fish population in their areas has shrunk so much due to them, fishermen are out of work. Did they inform you of that?

          If that is all true (which it could be) then truth has no place in a battle of emotions.

          Not that I don't agree Sally- whether they be cute white ones or dark brown ones- however I also support reasonable hunts on animals who have an out of control population.

              And I'm sure that overfishing has had nothing to do with that.

                Didn't you hear, the seals are using big nets to catch their dinner! Yeah, I've seen those seals eat fish. They eat like 3 fish a day! Stupid seals, wanting to eat!

                  I have always admired the argument that we must continue to bash the heads of seals to help the new generation of seal hunters, as if employment were an excuse for mass slaughter. And if the argument is over-population, then, so what? Nature has a way of balancing it all out without us meddling into it.

                    Just signed the petition, my mother told me about this last night.

                    I'm so disgusted. Humas deplete nature's resources and in turn kill off animals all the time...when seals need to actually eat, the solution is to kill them off. Amazing.

                      Oh, silly me! Why didn't I ever think of that? Those pigs! They should only be eating TWO.
