Seal Slaughter

Watch "Baby Seal's Sad Last Moments".

After decades of showing the public seal clubbing (read bloody massacre...) on television, newspapers and now the internet, things are starting to change. More countries are banning harp seal pelts, the last one being Russia. They were the biggest market for the Canadian seal fur industry. It is all about demand. Cut the demand and these practices will come to an end.

"We must see with our eyes what they must endure with their bodies"

Thanks to the social media, it's now easier to be aware of what's happening around us and also harder than ever for the corporations to hide anything from the public eye. I believe things will change in regard of "animal rights" and animal welfare because of it.
