If you have a FaceBook account you should sign this petition !!! Please!



About this Petition:



During Canada's annual war on seals, hundreds of thousands of baby seals are killed for their skin in the most horrific ways imaginable Seals stand no chance against club-wielding trappers who are after their fur, and they must look on as fellow pups are bludgeoned to death before meeting the same bloody fate.



These seals, many of whom are only weeks old when when they're barbarically killed, have their skulls smashed in or are shot point-blank by hunters who are driven by profit and greed. The anguish that a mother seal feels as she watches her baby being beaten to death just a feet away from her is horrifying and can be heard in her desperate cries and seen in her attempts to get to her baby.



During Canada's annual war on seals, hundreds of thousands of baby seals are killed for their skin in the most horrific ways imaginable. Seals stand no chance against club-wielding trappers who are after their fur, and they must look on as fellow pups are bludgeoned to death before meeting the same bloody fate.





Last year, more than 205,000 individual seals were killed during the massacre, which is nothing more than a money-making scheme orchestrated by professional fishers, and Canada will soon begin its annual merciless attack on seals for their fur. We need you to speak up for seals now and demand a permanent end to the cruel seal slaughter.



The Desired Outcome of this Petition:



205,000 individuals to speak out in memory of the seals who were bludgeoned with clubs, skinned alive, and dragged across the ice floes while still conscious last year.





Here is the link to the petition!!!!

The European Parliament voted to ban imports of seal products Tuesday, including fur coats and even omega-3 pills, trying to force Canada to end the annual seal hunt that animal rights groups call barbaric.

So what did Canada say to Europe after they banned these products? "Fine, we'll have our whole winter olympic team wearing seal pelt uniforms to boost up the sales"



WTF!



But thank god that was dismissed quicker than they came up with the idea.



Could you imagine the boycotts if the whole Canadian team strolled out in seal pelt uniforms? And what would happen if you (as a team member) refused to wear the uniform because you believe in animal rights?



I know I wouldn't watch the olympics at all...

An interesting note folks, I just got an email from PETA (hold the booing please), and they are saying that only 1/4 of the seal quota was filled this year, due to the rapidly falling price of seal skins (due maybe? to the recent closing of the European market). So keep up the pressure, the Canadian government has just gotta cave at some point!!!!
