Only Ten Days to Stop the Seal Hunt



This is from Oceana, the wonderful organization that is dedicated to protecting the world's oceans, and the inhabitants thereof:



Many people believe that the clubbing of seals is a thing of the past, but the harsh reality is that the commercial seal hunt goes on. Last year alone, more than 350,000 pups were shot or clubbed to death on the ice. In 10 days, the Canadian government will allow hundreds of thousands more to die.

-->Decades of public outcry led to the 1987 ban of hunting whitecoats, which are newborn harp seals. But it only takes about 12 days for the seals' fur to develop grey patches, at which point they become fair game to hunters. Ninety-five percent of the harp seals killed are less than three months old. The Canadian government claims that the seals are hunted because they are eating all the fish, when the truth is the seals are hunted for a frivolous demand of their pelts. Seal populations have dropped by almost half a million over the last several years and top scientists warn that if a commercial hunt of this scale continues the species could be in jeopardy in the very near future. Canada's annual commercial seal hunt is the largest slaughter of marine mammals on the planet. If these seals only lived a short distance to the south, they would be protected by U.S. law. Our Marine Mammal Protection Act prohibits the killing of all marine mammals - including seals. It's time Canada recognized the spirit of this act and adopted its own similar policy. Don't let these seal cubs be killed in the name of fashion, please contact Canadian Prime Minister Harper and demand an end to this cruel hunt.
