All day long I’ve been trying to write a blog about the brutal, barbaric, horrific, and disgusting seal “hunt” taking place in Canada right now. As my eyes well up with tears and my stomach turns, I realize I have no words to adequately express my feelings. The actions of the humans grossly killing the baby seals and the actions of the people within the government of Canada who make the decision to continue to allow this gawd awful event are equal in nature. And both carry no honor, no excuse, and absolutely no justification.
The brutal killing of defenseless baby seals is no more of a “hunt” than the slaughter of the bison that step just outside of Yellowstone Park or the aerial killings of wolves in Alaska. These actions are not a hunt and should never be qualified as such.
The image I have carried in my mind all day is from the movie Bless the Beasts and the Children. The bludgeoning of the baby seals, the slaughter of the bison, and the extermination of the wolves is no more of a hunt than rounding them all up into a pen and brutally killing them one by one would be considered a hunt.
12,368 seals have been brutally killed since yesterday morning.
Take action…PLEASE take action.
