Not really sure what’s going on with the whole Canadian seal slaughter thing? Here’s everything you need to know (WARNING: Graphic content):

This is a harp seal.

This is Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, where most seals are killed:

Every year, the Canadian government gives sealers the all-clear to do THIS to hundreds of thousands of babies:

Last year, sealers were allowed to kill up to 400,000 of them.

After bashing in the heads of or shooting baby seals, sealers then hook the animals in the eye, cheek, or mouth and drag them across the ice in order to avoid damaging their delicate fur. Many of them are less than three months old and haven’t even eaten their first solid meal or taken their first swim before they are killed.

 All major markets have banned seal fur, including Russia, which was importing 95% of it.

The only reason it continues is because political parties in Canada need Newfoundland’s swing seats in Parliament and will stop at nothing to show that they support local business.

… Seriously, what kind of an asshole is really wearing the skins of dead babies?

Countless people worldwide have spoken out against Canada’s annual war on seals, and heck—most Canadians are even against it.

Everyday folks like you and me aren’t the only ones pissed off about this. Tons of celebs are less than thrilled that this continues to happen to seals year after year, too, like …

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
