DFO Opens Commercial Seal Hunt Early, Removes Limited Protection for Mothers and Nursing Pups | IFAW - International Fund for Animal Welfare


Seals are dying in Canada’s commercial seal hunt, and this year could be particularly gruesome.
FACT: 98% of seals killed in the past few years were between three weeks and three months – too young and slow to escape.
DFO Opens Commercial Seal Hunt Early, Removes Limited Protection for Mothers andThat’s because the Government of Canada rolled back protections for the youngest seal pups and their mothers by opening the slaughter early – before the newborn pups had finished nursing. This interruption during the critical birthing period means mother seals nursing their young may have been killed, and their pups would have been left to fend for themselves. Tragically, many of them are just too young, and would likely starve to death.

FACT: Seals don’t always die when they’re shot or beaten. Sometimes an injured seal will escape, only to die a slow and painful death. They’re called the “struck and lost.” The struck and lost are one of the cruelest aspects of the hunt. But the truth is, it’s simply impossible for any of this hunt to be humane.
So much cruelty, and for what? Can you believe that many of the pelts sit in a warehouse because there’s no buyer for them? FACT: Sealers have admitted to dumping thousands of seal pelts into the ocean because they didn’t have a market to sell them to! And after decades of government attempts to create a market for seal meat, 92% of the meat from the commercial harp seal hunt is still wasted.


ALL OF THE BARBARIC BUTCHERY BEING INFLICTED AGAINST EARTH'S ANIMALS IS DESTROYING OUR OWN HUMANITY. NO ONE HAS A RIGHT TO BE CRUEL, IT'S NOTHING SHORT OF A BIOLOGICAL DEFECT TO BELIEVE ANYONE PERSON OR ANY GROUP OF PEOPLES IS SOMEHOW ENTITLTLED TO SUCH. Human beings have no right to designate other fellow Earthlings as being mere 'things', as though life on our planet exists for us to use, abuse and/or otherwise disrespectfully consume as we choose. Animals, humans and/or nonhumans are not f*cking commodity products!


END HUMAN SUPREMACY NOW! If we continue to allow this corrupted ideology to determine our social values, it will eventually destroy us but it will be of our own, collective choice, our own doing. What is far more unjust is how our choosing ignorance, indifference, greed & gluttony will concurrently & systematically cause pain, suffering and extinction to so many of the beautiful creatures of Earth.

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CARE ABOUT NATURE! Humanity is part of nature, we can not (and will not) exist without it... at least, not in a way other than us becoming 'farmed' ourselves (ex. how we "grow" animals). We are not supposed to be OK with ecocide nor genocide. We should feel a moral obligation to want to protect the vulnerable lives among us, those who have no choice, we are supposed to be their voice.


So unless we are OK with the masses be turned into a collective species of sociopaths, serial killers, mindless over-consuming suicidal idiots, WE MUST CHANGE! STOP THE WAR AGAINST ANIMALS & LIFE ON OUR PLANET & WE WILL SAVE OURSELVES
