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.
