This morning, Monday, June 12, NBC's Today Show aired a piece on the Canadian Seal Hunt. You can watch the story on line at:


It is a strong piece that includes upsetting footage and quotes from animal advocates such as Paul McCartney and HSUS's Wayne Pacelle who says, "It is unconscionable, it's barbaric, it's inhumane, and it needs to end."

Please thank the Today for the coverage. Much positive feedback for coverage of animal protection issues will encourage follow-ups and similar stories.

The Today Show takes comments at [email protected]

I thank Becky in Colorado, and Jennifer Brown for making sure we knew about the story.

Yours and the animals',

Karen Dawn
