It is hard to imagine that just a week from now if not sooner seal pups like the baby pictured on the left will be literally hacked, beaten, and then skinned alive. It makes me wonder about the word human, and humane. Is man even capable of caring for the beautiful things of the earth without wanting to consume or destroy them? Was man ever able to appreciate beauty like that of harp and gray seals without wanting to wear their skin? This year 300,00 harp seal babies and 60,000 gray seals will be brutally skinned alive. The sale of seal products is banned in most places. Thanks to China though the seal molesters will still have a market. It is amazing that year after year the world sits by while Canada does the unthinkable. My first question is always what can I do? My intention with today’s post was t0 list several ways your voice can be heard. Follow the link below and contact the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper and ask him to the brutal slaughter of these babies and their mothers. Tell him that you will boycott all Canadian cold water seafood until the seal hunt ends. http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/contact.asp Follow the link below and tell the Red Lobster to stop buying Canadian Seafood until the Seal Hunt is ended! http://www.redlobster.com/contact_us/
