Preparing for the Slaughter - Canada's Seal Hunt Starts Monday
Here in Canada, around the world and on the Internet, there is a lot of discussion about things like how these seals aren't an endangered species, and how they've grown even more abundant and so they are in no danger of disappearing...
Um...this really isn't the point...the point is that clubbing an animal, on the skull, and then skinning it to create luxury items is cruel. These animals are suffering, and yes certainly a tangential/absurd argument can be made that there are other animals who are less 'cute' who are harvested for the worlds use day in and day out...and to that I say that IFAW works dilligently to make a better world for all animals and people as much as our limited resources allow...in an approach that considers soveregnty, respects cultures, observes and operates within the boundaries of law.
