Seal Slaughter.Several days ago, I posted about the infamous seal "hunt"(slaughter) which takes place every year, in Canada.Time for an update.
Good News: There's a Senator who's proposed a bill, see below, to potentially end the slaughter of seals in Canada, forever.Thank you, Canadian Senator Marc Harb! Bad News: the slaughter has already begun, as of yesterday.
Read on, for details, and to see how you may help!
From Samer, Care 2 Action Alerts:
Thanks to a courageous Canadian Senator, Marc Harb, there is now a Bill to end Canada's commercial seal hunt, which is expected to take the lives of more than 250,000 baby seals this year alone. Support the historic Bill to stop the hunt! » Imagine a world in which there are no more baby seals hooked and dragged onto boats while still conscious. No more seals as young as three weeks old skinned alive. No more needless slaughter of hundreds of thousands of seals each year. With the proposed seal product ban in the EU and Russia's recent ban on hunting harp seals less than a year old, this dream can soon be made a reality. The momentum to end Canada's commercial seal hunt has never been stronger. Senator Harb wants to fill the Senate with messages of support for his Bill. Please sign the petition today! » Take action link: http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/AFlLC/zjYY/xoDZ
