Seal Slaughter Resumes in Canada
Canada’s bloody commercial seal slaughter resumed yesterday, although with many fewer boats and participants than in past years. The offseason fishermen who seek to kill seals do so only because the federal government provides subsidies to help buy up the pelts. But their actions lead to an extraordinary loss of life in this seal nursery. Today, I offer my latest video blog and commentary.
You can help stop Canada’s senseless seal slaughter by making a donation to HSI's Protect Seals campaign, which is hard at work to shut down the commercial sealing industry.
