Baby seal slaughter begins in less than 2 days
Who could possibly purchase fur clothing made out of these little guys killed so brutally?
Often they are skinned before they are dead despite what the Canadian government says.
Do you want to support thugs like this? If not, sign the pledge.
The seal hunt survives only because of subsidies doled out to the sealing industry by the government of Canada. It has become a glorified welfare scheme where in return for killing seals for a few weeks the sealers can qualify for unemployment insurance for the rest of the year.
“They say it’s part of their culture,” said Captain Watson, president and founder of Sea Shepherd who himself grew up in an Eastern fishing village in the Canadian province of New Brunswick. “It’s a culture based on the cruel clubbing of baby seals for a few weeks each year and drinking Canadian Club and beer the rest of the year. It’s a culture that any Maritimer with half a brain abandoned generations ago.”
It looks like this skinhead asshole spends a lot of time on his ass drinking beer.
