Last Saturday I protested puppy mills outside a pet store in the mall that gets their dogs from puppy mills. On Sunday I will be at a seal support rally in La Jolla to ward off the a-holes who harass the seals, since the police seem unwilling to enforce the law which supposedly protects them. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is supposed to be there too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

The seal support rally was great! Here is the issue:<br>
Back in the day a sea wall was erected. It created a small, secluded beach that people use as a "children's pool". But before it was used by humans, it was used by seals as a rookery. They have nowhere else to go since every other beach in San Diego is for human use. It is currently pupping season, but for some reason it is still totally legal to go onto the beach. There are these local spear fishers and divers who think they have a right to be there and drive the seals away. It is so sad to see the the seals with their pups, exhausted, floating in the water wanting to go onshore but being too afraid to.<br><br>
So...<br><br>
We protest human use of the beach and are attempting to get it turned into a marine mammal reserve.<br><br>
We got so much support from passersby. It seemed that the majority of people, including the cops who were there, were on the side of the seals.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Haha, I know, its so nice when people actually give a damn and show up. Good on you for organizing that! I must say I'm a bit sad that more people on VB aren't activists. I understand though. It's hard when you have so much other stuff going on in your life.

Its awesome when people support what your doing, people love seals for some reason, maybes its because they're faces look so much like dogs. But a month ago when I did the whole anti seal hunt thing a lot of people were nice about it, like 70% of Canadians are against the seal hunt.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Forgive my ignorance on the issue, but why would anyone be FOR the seal hunt? The economy?

Economy is the main reason that people are pro commercial seal hunt, but tradition is the reason for the non-commercial one. First Nations and Norwegian settlers hunted seals before the Europeans settled here. Also because of sociological conditions in the east coast often communities will hunt seals for a genuine food/clothing source. Which is sad, and wrong, but understandable.

Hey, at least its not like my anti-seal people, who are only harassing the seals because they think they have a "right" to use the beach. There is video footage of one of them saying, "I have the right to be the alpha male on this beach."<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:">

Yeh at least the traditional seal hunt (not the commercial one) is some what respectful of the animals. They will use all the animal parts they can, and bury the ones that cant be used. its better than the commercial hunt which will use the fur and either leave the bodies behind or bury them in a mass grave.
