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]

This is the year 2021 you would think things would get better for animal’s and humans but no the human nature of greed just goes on.humans have went backwards instead of moving forward and realizing this planet does not belong to them.they are merely caretakers and that means looking after every living creature that shares this planet.you kill life you kill the planet.

  6. MICHAEL BAVARO says:

    HOW ABOUT CLUBBING THESE MORONS THE SAME WAY OR SKINNING THEM ALIVE.

  7. What a bunch of mentally sick in the head bunch of people living in that Neanderthal backward country

  8. Rose Coffey says:

    Yes, this “tradition” needs to be discontinued. It’s time for countries to wake up and realize that ignorant practices like this don’t do their countries any good. Tourists really should boycott any country that has cruelty to animals in any way. I know this won’t happen but I would love it if it did. Once money gets limited companies and countries start to listen.

  9. This is just too ghastly to even imagine. It like an ice pick in the gut. What kind of monsters can do these things??? The Canadian government should do better than allow this act which only belongs in hell itself.

  10. This is so outdated and no longer a needed option. It truly is barbaric as well as despicable and sick. Totally uncalledfor in this day and age. Stop the insanity of it atl.

  11. CHRIST!!!!!! How many generations have to protest this barbaric slaughter before Canada bans this unspeakable cruelty????

    How can Canadians turn their back on this depraved indifference to the suffering year after year????

  12. ALL CANADIANS CARRY THE SHAME OF ALLOWING THIS UNSPEAKABLE CRUELTY!!!!!!!!!!

  13. HOW CAN WE RESPECT CANADIANS FOR ALLOWING THIS SUFFERING TO CONTINUE? I’VE BEEN SIGNING THESE PETITIONS TO STOP THE SLAUGHTER FOR 50 YEARS!!!!

  14. F….. the Canadian economy and the Minister of Finance!!!

    💔💔💔🆘🙏🙏🙏🛑☠️🛑

  16. This will only stop when:
    1. People stop buying seal products
    2. The government stops catering to the anti-seal fisherman’s lobby that puts the blame on seals for overfishing when diminishing fish stocks are in fact more human and climate related
    3. The government finds more creative ways to keep Maritimers employed than sending them out to murder seals.

  17. Laura Stewart says:

    Mr. Trudeau,
    IT IS TIME TO SHOW COMPASSION TO ANIMALS AS YOU SEEM TO ONLY DO FOR REFUGEES. HOW CAN YOUR CONSCIOUS ALLOW THIS YEAR AFTER YEAR ALL FOR THE ECONOMY!? ITBIS TRULY SICKENING HOW YOU SEEM TO CARE NOTHING FOR ANIMAL WELFARE
