Hearing about the Canadian seal slaughter, in which thousands of seals are beaten or shot and then skinned every year, is nothing like seeing it for yourself. Warning: graphic images below:

Seal Slaughter 1

Today is the start of Canada’s annual commercial seal slaughter.

Seal Slaughter 2

It’s the day when sealers begin beating or shooting baby harp seals to death for their soft fur.

Seal Slaugher 3

PETA and kind people all over the world have spoken out against the slaughter, and we’re making great progress.

Seal Slaugher 4

Ten years ago, sealers killed about 350,000 seals, but last year, that number dropped to 35,000—the lowest  in 20 years. 

Seal Slaughter 5

Fewer than 1,000 sealers have participated in the slaughter in recent years.

Seal Slaughter 6

Because of a lack of markets for seal products, the slaughter is costing Canada millions more to support than it earns, and seal fur processors admit that they are stockpiling pelts because they can’t sell them

Seal Slaughter 7

Still, tens of thousands of seals are expected to be killed in the coming weeks. 🙁

Seal Slaugher 8

This is the year that we can stop the slaughter!

Seal Slaugher 9

Canada’s new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, supports many progressive social issues, and now we’re urging him to extend his compassion further and begin a new era of kindness and financial responsibility by ending federal subsidies of the commercial seal slaughter.

Seal Slaugher 10

Even if you have spoken up for seals before, please send a message to Prime Minister Trudeau.

Seal Slaugher 11

Let him know that the power to stop this atrocity is in his hands …

Seal Slaugher 12

… and that the world is ready for Canada to stop slaughtering baby seals!

Seal Slaugher 13

The U.S., the European Union, and Russia have all already banned seal-fur imports.

Seal Slaugher 14

Let’s put a stop to this!

Together, we can continue to help seals!

    The f—— human species are the cause of all the unimaginable atrocities committed against the helpless Wildlife and all animals Worldwide. It is absolutely sickening and unforgivable that the Canadian Government allows these atrocities committed against these precious Seals to continue. They are money hungry and greedy monsters and must be made to stop and ban this sadism and evilness forever. This is pure evil at its worst.
    My heart aches for the billions of innocent Seals that have endured this sadism and evilness, purely for GREED.

    This is absolutely brutal and savage. I know that these men are doing their “job” but this way… is unaccetable and cruel
    Hopefully this will end soon.

    Sad to see such cruelty and torture to one of nature’s gentlest creatures. These slaughterers need to get a heart! And a different job….. Do they wonder how these mammals feel and why they cry? The suffering and madness needs to stop! All for GREED…. Shameful!

    These people have absolutely no knowledge of nature. Humans shouldn’t intervene. If there are too many seals… There could be a shortage of food, and they could die that way, reducing the population. I’m pretty sure that these seals have a natural predator. And that predator doesn’t get to feed it’s pups/cubs because of this. Messing with the circle of life is bad.

    PS: Americans are just as involved as Canadians in this because Americans also participate in this cruel barbaric activity. And if you really want to know who is bad, Watch Food Inc. and other videos on Peta to show you how AMERICAN corporations make your meat come to you table. So no one is innocent here.. people think because we dominate the land we can take whatever without consequence but soon there will be nothing to take anymore for anyone.

    This has been a unnecessary tradition in Canada for MANY years and it needs to stop. There are humane ways to killing an animal and clubbing them to death and skinning them while they are still alive is NOT the way.

    This is not the human race that I want to be a part of. This is NOT the Canada that I have known my whole life and it is NOT the Canada that I want people to know as such a great country because Canada is letting me down.

    Oh My Goodness! These pictures seriously just broke my heart. Those men are monsters, I can’t even believe that people can do this and get away with it. If a person has a dog for a pet and they kill the dog on purpose or beat it they get sent to jail for Animal Cruelty. So why is this not considered animal cruelty? This is sick and disgusting and I feel sooooo bad for this animals getting killed.

    But what can we do against all these horrible and cruel things that happen to our animals? Shouldn`t we go there to protest and demonstrate against seal slaughter? Shouldn`t we cry out loud? We must start to do something, we must protect the animals, we must become stronger! We must DO something, talking about is to less!!!

    Sure this is outraging, but just posting an angry comment on a blog and then forgetting about it does nothing. We need to join an organization, donate money, do something to get things done, because cruelty isn’t stopped by internet comments.

    WTF The people are making a profit for skinning seals? The seals have a right to live just like you and I. This is inhuman for life. Life and nature have their own courses people shouldn’t interfere with. I believe this should definitely be changed. There should be a law to keep people from doing this.
