Canadian Seal Slaughter 2008 - GRAPHIC FOOTAGE

All right, here's the video. I've watched it and it's not as horrific as some of the other ones on youtube which document the seal "hunt." The point is we have to face what we are doing to animals. This is not for food. It is senseless and inhumane slaughter for fashion and fashion accessories.

As a Canadian, this really makes me sick. It reminds me of the senseless killing of sharks for their fins. I am not proud to be in a country where this is allowed. Thanks for posting.

They will kill 50,000 more this year than last year. It's dreadful. And doesn't it seem the exact opposite of how the world usually views Canadians?!

Yes...if other countries are opposed to it, usually Canada is not the one to uphold it.

I don't understand...why? What's the point? That was so horrible.

These are the moments when a *head/desk* just doesn't seem to cut it, anymore. Seems like those guys would pluck a baby angel's wings if some yahoo representing an ideal unattainable to the common man said it was fashionable. I wonder if those hunters have a massive family of starving, peaky-looking children...
But probably not.
