Did you know that during Canada’s annual war on seals, sealers routinely hook live seals in the eye, cheek, or mouth to avoid damaging the fur, and then drag the bloody, mangled seals across the ice? Many of these gentle, young creatures may not even have eaten their first solid meal or taken their first swim before they are slaughtered for their skin.
The hunters want you to think that that killing these animals is crucial to their survival—but it’s not. (And would clubbing an animal to death ever be excusable anyway?) The seal slaughter is a way for fisherman to get a little bit of extra money during the off season—and every year, thousands of seals pay the ultimate price with their lives. That extra money is dwindling, as countries all over the world ban the import of seal fur—but seals still need your voice!
March 15, 2010 is the International Day of Action for Seals, and throughout the next few weeks, we’re going to be giving you ideas on how YOU can speak up for the seals who are on the ice right now. These seals have no idea that in a few short months, fisherman will appear with their clubs to bludgeon them to death—all for a little extra cash.
RSVP to our International Day of Action for Seals event on Facebook now to get all of the updates and stay up to date with our seal slaughter campaign.
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
