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]

    For the love of God!

  2. Janet Stafford says:

    Its shameful that an otherwise civilized nation would resort to barbaric slaughter. Stop the massacre of innocent lives just beginning life! Painful death!

  3. This is really one sick world. Those that understand what is truly “right” must keep pleading to those that respect nothing to let other species live and thrive in peace. Man as a whole is worse than any natural disaster.

  4. Susan Durnford says:

    I can’t believe this is still happening. The video are so horrific and upsetting- why has nothing been done to stop this – it’s just for fur – hardly a life saving commodity.

  5. Elease M. Bradford says:

    My heart breaks for these innocent seals and how they suffer immense pain and suffering when they are slaughtered. This practice is barbaric and needs to be outlawed.

  6. This is beyond cruelty and this needs to stop. If the people will not stop buying fur for their clothing, then us people who care need to boycott those that buy it and wear it. Ie the elite, actors.

  7. Maggie Edmonston says:

    If we were meant to wear fur we would have been born with it! Stop stealing fur off other creatures, it is not yours. Fur does not make humans look glamorous, just ugly inside and out. Most humans are cruel and disgusting for their own vanity. It must stop and be made illegal or a long term prison sentence be given.

  8. Cuanta crueldad !!!

    This has gone on way too long. My demand would now be to see Prime Minister Justin Trudeau go himself with a photography crew to film him slaughtering seals since he is backing and in agreement of this horrendous abuse; I would be very interested in seeing what his approval rates would be, don’t think they would be too powerful then? It’s called “putting your money where your mouth is”. Why doesn’t PM JT go for a trophy seal kill?

    • i am so in agreement with you Margaret….i have signed these petitions for YEARS, and it is still going on…..when will this end??????? enough is enough….these heartless humans that are slaughtering these seals will one day have their day of pain….it is stated “an eye for an eye”

  11. Justin, get those sociopathic fisherman jobs in Canada’s lucrative pump and dump sector.

    Assume one of your poutine fetcher aides will read this and not you.

    Poutine fetcher Google up Justin Trudeau + Frelii. Then pull up a 3 year price chart. Pump and dumps are far more lucrative than clubbing mother seals and their pups to a brutal death.

    You “people” make me sick. Green bullshit this and that. Pounding on other countries for ethnic cleansing yet you not only permit beating innocent animals to a slow death, you support it?

    Canadians=sociopathic greedy sadists and hypocrites

  12. Who could do this?????

  13. CANADA!!! EVIL TO LET THIS CONTINUE!!~! YOU MAKE ME SICK!!!!!

    THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS!!!!~ STOP IT!!!~! DO SOMETHING!!!
    WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU????? PURE EVIL!!~! JUSTIN DO THE RIGHT THING AND STOP THIS!!!!!

  14. Eileen Bennett says:

    Back in the 1960’s I was writing to a Canadian government Agency about this slaughter of seals.
    I got some kind of weak reply from them and nothing has changed over these many years.

  15. The human being is the most CRUEL and EVIL of all species!

  16. Madeline says:

    CRUEL AND UNNECESSARY !! JUSTIN TRUDEAU DO WHATS RIGHT FOR THESE SEALS

  17. These people should be clubbed. I would do it.enjoy every second

  18. Such lovely innocent animals.
    How can people be so sadistically cruel, stupid and heartless !!
    These murderers have to undergo immediately and exactly the same horrific treatment then the one inflicted to these poor innocent helpless animals!
    How can Trudeau be so cruelly indifferent to the suffering and agony of these innocent animals !!

  19. What a waste of life! We don’t need fur! It’s not like we are a bunch of nomads living off the land! This cruelty needs to stop! How can anyone do this? It truly makes my soul cry each time I hear that these “hunts” are continuing. These men are probably staunchly against abortion yet they can murder babies and their mothers heartlessly, just because they are a different species than their own.

    On what grounds is this not animal cruelty?
