14 Shocking Seal Slaughter Photos

Posted April 8, 2015 by Kim Johnson

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. The photos below show seals suffering at the hands of the greedy fur industry.

Even though there’s basically no market for seal pelts, sealers will be allowed to kill up to 400,000 harp seals this year!

Does this make you angry?

There is hope! The U.S., the European Union, and Russia have all already banned seal-fur imports, and despite years of effort by Canada to create a market for seal fur and meat in China, the Canadian Minister of Fisheries and Oceans recently admitted that China has backed away from a trade agreement to sell seal meat, in part because of pressure from animal rights activists. This means that your voice makes a difference! Thanks to caring people like YOU who spoke out against cruelty, countless seals have been saved.

Together, we can continue to help seals!

    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.
