End the Barbaric Slaughter of Mother Seals and Pups

Target: Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada

Goal: Save seals in Canada from a horrific death.

The Canadian seal hunt sees more than ten thousand seals brutally slaughtered each year. The Canadian government shows no interest in stopping this horrible cruelty. Not only does the government permit the hunts, but it also supports and promotes them, in the hopes the income will fuel the economy.

Commercial seal hunters ruthlessly club these beautiful beings or shoot them, disregarding whether they are dead or alive. Therefore, the animals are often still conscious when they are skinned. Killing the seals in this ghastly manner does not damage the fur, which is preferred in the fashion industry.

Hunters will arrive at seal breeding sites with their grisly weapons, prepared to ruthlessly murder these beautiful animals. They kill every seal that crosses their path, including mothers and their pups. If a mother seal is killed but her pup lives, the likelihood of his survival is dim. Most often the orphaned baby seals that are too young to fend for themselves are destined to starve.

Fishermen in Canada and others with interest in the fishing industry frequently stress the high demand for seal products and the importance of the seal hunt itself. The demand for seal fur, however, is declining and there is virtually no commercial demand for seal meat that is carelessly discarded on the ice. In addition to that, seal hunting does not sustain fishermen’s families as it only accounts for one-twentieth of their average income.

Seals are already struggling to survive in the face of global warming; the ice that is crucial for their existence is vanishing. Seal hunts add to the rapidly rising death toll. The hunt starts every April. This extreme cruelty must come to an end. Sign the petition below to stop the seal massacre.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Trudeau,

The Canadian seal hunt is a ghastly commercial slaughter of innocent animals. Every year, these precious animals are viciously clubbed or shot by fishermen for their fur. Already seals are facing the challenges of global warming that destroys their habitat and food resources, yet, the seal hunt in Canada continues.

The seals are brutally killed only to sell their pelts to the fashion industry, although the demand for seal fur is rapidly declining. Furthermore, seal hunting only accounts for one-twentieth of a fisherman’s average income, which does not justify continuing this cruel practice.

We have to take care of our environment and all living beings that inhabit it with compassion. The Canadian seal massacre demonstrates some of the most environmentally unsustainable and inhumane actions. We cannot allow this gruesome practice to continue. Protect seals from a horrible death. Prohibit seal hunting in Canada.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. For TWENTY years I have been signing this petition! Why the HELL can’t celebrities get involved put a stop to this atrocity!

    • I have also been signing the same petition through different organisations for years, but nothing comes of it. Celebrities and media could help put a stop to this heinous abuse.

  3. Shame on disgraceful animal abusing Canada. They have lost me as a former regular tourist.
