So far, the Canadian seal hunthas claimed the life of nearly 100,000 baby seals this year, and a few hundred thousand more will be dead in the coming month. Anyone who thinks that this massacre is justifiable needs to go to the Gulf of St. Lawrence or the ice flows off Newfoundland and Labrador themselves and see, hear, and smell the death all around. You can hear these baby seals scream from hundreds of yards away as they are bludgeoned over the head. Assuming that most people won’t actually ever witness it for themselves, maybe this image will help put it in perspective:
Anyone who calls themselves “pro-life” but still wears fur is a dumbfuck, period. To be fair, anyone who is “pro-choice” but doesn’t realize that seals and other animals deserve consideration of their most basic interests (you know, like not being clubbed to death) is a hypocrite as well.
