Even the death of thousands of newborn pups in the Gulf of Saint-Laurent due to global warming has not prompted the Canadian authorities to cancel the hunt as recommended by the experts. In this particular respect, Canada's attitude can be qualified as highly irresponsible.

Last weekend two cubs were found by a logger and a truck driver on the roads of the Chuguyewski district in the Primorye region. The young tigers were so exhausted from hunger and frost that they did not flee from the men.
 
“These tigers look like they are only about two months old which indicates they were likely abandoned by their mother tigress,” said Igor Beliatski, of IFAW.

IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare – www.ifaw.org) said the new regulations sent a clear message to the hunting fraternity that it is time to clean up the industry.
 
While hunting of captive bred predators per se has not been altogether stopped, the new rules will make it extremely difficult to qualify for hunting permits
 
IFAW said it was very encouraged by the new legislation.

New scientific report indicates a recent lack of sea ice is dangerous for Canada’s harp seal population

Publication Date: 
din, 02/20/2007
Image: 
As the report indicates, in nine of the past 11 years, average ice coverage has deteriorated to well below the average ice cover seen over the last 37 years. A lack of suitable ice, combined with violent storms and early ice break-up disrupts the seals’ normal pupping season. Reduction in ice cover can result in increased pup mortality if there is no ice for mothers to give birth on or if the ice melts before the end of the nursing period.
 
The Canadian government has indicated that it is dedicated to taking ‘real action’ on global warming.

The results of a new Ipsos - MORI poll1, released today by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org), the League Against Cruel Sports, and the RSPCA, shows that despite the pro-hunt protestations, little has changed,  with support for a ban repeatedly exceeding opposition over the past decade. 
 
In the latest survey, 58% supported the ban remaining in place, against just 17% per cent who wished to see the Hunting Act repealed.   The 17% is made up of nine per cent who
