Stop Clubbing Baby Seals and Their Mothers to Death

Target: Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans

Goal: End inhumane seal hunting in Canada.

The commercial seal slaughter in Canada opened two weeks early this year, despite the unsettling fact that mother seals are presumably still nursing their pups during this time. Allowing newborn seal pups and their mothers to be brutally murdered for profit is disgusting and the Canadian government must not put money over morals. Demand the commercial seal hunt be stopped once and for all to save these innocent creatures.

The Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans doesn’t usually open the Newfoundland commercial seal hunt until after seal pups have been weaned, although even this is still a gross crime of unnecessary animal cruelty. A company called PhocaLux lobbied the Canadian government to open the seal hunt early this year in order to hunt adult seals for their meat and for oil.

Canada has said that PhocaLux can’t take seals from the areas where mothers give birth and take care of their babies, but the lines are blurry on what constitutes these areas, making it easier for hunters to kill nursing mothers without consequences. This would leave baby seals abandoned to starve to death.

Seals are often shot in the face, clubbed to death or impaled with sharp picks. This bloody and violent cruelty must end. Demand the Canadian government end the appalling commercial seal hunt once and for all.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister LeBlanc,

Canada’s commercial seal hunt is the largest slaughter of marine mammals on the planet. This is absolutely shameful. This slaughter is inhumane and destroys ecosystems and the families of innocent animals. To say that this bloody hunt is “sustainable” and “an important economic and cultural activity” is sickening.

Being paid out by companies to allow the death of precious creatures is absolutely wrong. I demand you put morals and animals’ lives above profit and end the commercial seal hunt in your country.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    What kind of person condones this. This is so sick and cruel, but, as usual, humans being cruel to defenseless animals is a common practice in the sick world we live in

  4. It’s not really about the commercial sale of meat and pelts so much as it is the scapegoating of seals for the damage to cod stocks in the North Atlantic, which was, in fact, caused by extremely poor fishery management from the government. It’s basically a case of “We screwed up, let’s blame another species.” Anyone interested in getting more detail on this should read the excellent book “Sea of Slaughter” by Farley Mowat.

    To the lowlife POS scum that beat these poor innocent seals to death, you’re time in hell is coming!

  6. Politics is rampant with personality disorders and is why the world`s in such a fucking mess!
    Politicians are the poison NOT the antidote.

    Doesn’t it make you proud to be a part of the human race? I am Canadian and I am thoroughly disgusted and ashamed that my government is a party to this savagery by these ignorant, illiterate thugs. Every government since the 1980’s when it was brought back after a time of being banned has allowed this. It makes us look like stupid, uneducated savages. Shame.

    Considering Canada is supposed to be a civilised country this type of cruelty is beyond humanity. These also are babies and are no threat to humans yet are violated in the most vicious attacks on their species. This must stop now.
