One-Minute Mission: Use Facebook to Save Seals!

Profile photo of Rachelle-O

Posted January 23, 2012 by Rachelle Owen

Seals are freakin’ cute—am I right?! So cute, in fact, that most people can’t believe that fishers in Canada still somehow find it acceptable to bash their skulls in and skin them—sometimes while they’re still alive. Unfortunately, this still happens—and it’s up to us to end the seal slaughter once and for all!

Spread the word to your friends and ask them to speak up for seals by clicking on the photo below, saving it, and uploading it as your “cover photo” on Facebook. (Not sure how to change your cover photo? Click here for instructions!)

Send us a screenshot at StreetTeam@peta2.com for 1,000 points (which you can put toward FREE merch!).

    They are affectionate, living creatures and those who inhumanely slaughter them should be held legally accountable for gross abuse.

    disgusting.. Please stop killing seals simply for money. This is ridiculous. These are innocent animals no one HAS to kill, killing these animals is unnecessary and inhumane.

    I just made it my cover pic… Not so much for the points or anything but because it is something that I fully believe in. It seriously only takes a minute to do, (once I remembered how lol) but I also shared the pic & link on my wall in hopes that other friends will do the same. :D

    Psalm 50:10-11 for every animal of the forest is mine,and the cattle on a thousand hills.I know every bird in the mountains,and the creatures of the field are mine.
    Psalm 104:24-25 O Lord, how manifold are your works!
    In wisdom have you made them all;
    the earth is full of your creatures.
    Here is the sea, great and wide,
    which teems with creatures innumerable,
    living things both small and great.

    Job 34:11 He repays a man for what he has done; he brings upon him what his conduct deserves.

    Jeremiah 32:19 great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to all the ways of men; you reward everyone according to his conduct and as his deeds deserve. [good and wicked] [as the unrepentant will be judged on the day of Your return.]

    Ezekiel 18:20 The soul who sins [without daily repentance] is the one who will die [the eternal death]. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him.

    Colossians 3:25 But evildoers will receive their reward for their evil actions. There is no discrimination.

    2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

    We are all stewards of God’s creatures while we traverse His earth, and as such are to see that each animal is to be given a dignified end to it’s life.

    Matthew 10:29 When two sparrows are sold they cost a penny, but not even they can die without your Father in heaven knowing about it.

    I am not for seal slaughter once so ever, however some Inuits do eat seals and kill them for that reason. If they are eating the seals, then fine, but slaughter for no reason… NOT fine. They eat seal as we eat our meat!

    It’s a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best of people have always done. Canadians, wake up and find some kindness and compassion in your hearts. It surely seems you guys have lost it.

    Alguien aún cree que los animales no sienten y sólo sirven para beneficio humano.
    Acabemos con esa ignorancia utilitarista, pensemos sin egoísmo y con sabiduría, es la mejor forma de ensañar valores a nuestros hijos y poner el ejemplo a nuestra sociedad. Respetemos la vida y luchemos a favor de ella.

    It is our responsibility to act and save creatures who have
    no voice and are innocent and defenseless against mankind.
    I think we have matured enough intelligently to see that
    this barbaric practice must come to an end.

    Por favor alto a tanta crueldad, estos seres tienen el mismo derecho a vivir que todo, Por qué algunas personas no tienen conciencia. dedíquense a ganarse la vida de otra forma sin sacrificar tan cruelmente a las focas. Quien no siente el dolor de un ser vivo es un enfermo mental
