Dear Minister LeBlanc,
Recently three fishermen, Mark Allan MacKenzie, Jay Alexander Jenkins and Brendon Dougles James Porter, allegedly posted a video of them beating a baby seal to death. The seal still had white fur, which makes it illegal to kill since it was likely only a few days old.
The video is very disturbing to watch. You can see one fisherman kicking the seal in the head while others laugh. The video does not show the seal dying, but the Department of Fisheries and Oceans has confirmed the seal’s death.
This act was not only illegal but incredibly barbaric and cruel. Do not let this seal’s unnecessary death go unnoticed. Please punish these men to the fullest extent of the law if they are found guilty of this horrific crime.
