Brutal Killing of Baby Seals


Sorry guys I know this isn't really makeup related but I'm a huge animal fan and it breaks my heart to see animals being hurt or killed. I'm afraid to even go on some of those sites such as PETA because of the horryfing videos. This is just one of the pictures, some were even worse and it really brought tears to my eyes. This needs to be stopped now. In canada there's no law on seal hunt, and most of these are baby seals too :(

It would be greatly appreciated if you could either sign the petition or join the facebook group
Thanks a lot




The following was posted on the site:

Canada’s annual seal hunt is the largest slaughter of marine mammals on Earth. Last year, the world looked on in horror as the Canadian government permitted the slaughter of more than 330,000 harp seals. During the hunt, baby seals are shot or repeatedly clubbed. Sealers bludgeon the animals with clubs and “hakapiks” (clubs with metal hooks on their ends) and drag the seals—who are still conscious—across the ice floes with boat hooks. An estimated 42 percent of the animals are skinned alive. Hunters toss dead and dying seals into heaps and leave their carcasses to rot on the ice floes because there is no market for seal meat. Veterinarians who have investigated the hunt have found that hunters routinely fail to comply with Canada’s animal welfare standards.

It is legal in Canada to kill seal pups when they are about 12 days old. During last year’s hunt, almost all the seals killed were 3 months old or younger. Many had not yet learned how to swim or eaten their first solid meals. Baby seals are helpless and have no way to escape from the sealers’ clubs.
