Baby Seals Murdered at Canadian Taxpayers’ Expense!

Once again it’s the time of year that baby seals are murdered by the thousands by Newfoundland fisherman so rich people can buy seal skin clothing.

How can this kind of thing still happen? In a word- government subsidies.

This infographic from Humane Society International tells you more. seal_infographic_2012 Please keep shouting to Canada to stop the madness.

And if you see a rich person wearing seal fur, shame them publicly.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  5. I know… it’s disgusting – disgraceful and utterly inhumane. To this day I can’t find a way to cope with the ‘human’ atrocities. I just hope that by sharing, speaking out, acting and signing petitions our specie might eventually become a little bit more ‘human’… Thank you, Jen for doing all the above!

  6. I never knew how the seals were killed. And I must admit that in the early 70s I owned a seal coat. I would have never bought it if I had know about the cruelty. I stop taking Premerin when I found what they did to horses in order to make the drug.

  7. That is so sad. It is just as bad as what the Japanese do to the dolphins, which is also senseless.

  9. Amazing post, Rumpy and Jen! I had no idea this was still going on. I honestly thought we had put an end to it back in the ’80s.

  10. Ugh. Canada has a long way to come on several animal issues. This one is just the most public.
