Target: Ola Elvestuen, Member of Norwegian Parliament
Goal: Thank Norway for ending government subsidies to support seal slaughter, thereby sparing countless lives.
For centuries, numerous boats have ventured up north from Norway to kill seals for personal profit. However, this marks the first year that not a single Norwegian boat set sail to kill innocent seals.
Seals are incredibly social animals and can live up to 30 years in the wild. However, many seals do not make it to this age or even to adulthood, as they have traditionally been shot or clubbed to death for their fur, meat and blubber. Thankfully, Norway is now one less country participating in these cruel practices. Sign this petition and thank Norway for no longer supporting seal slaughter, thereby sparing countless animals from unnecessary pain and death.
Dear Mr. Elvestuen,
This is the first hunting season where not one single Norwegian boat set sail to kill seals for their fur, meat and blubber. I was ecstatic to hear this news.
Seals are incredibly social, unique, and intelligent animals, and for centuries these innocent creatures have been shot or clubbed to death for personal gain. Thankfully, Norway has cut government subsidies for seal slaughter, which has helped put an end to this cruel practice.
I would like to extend my gratitude to the Norwegian government for no longer supporting this inhumane slaughter. Thanks to your actions, the lives of countless seals will be spared.
[Your Name Here]
