Urgent: Stop Canada's Bloody Spring Seal Hunt

Urgent: Stop Canada's Bloody Spring Seal Hunt

The spring seal hunt in is underway in Eastern Canada. Right now, infant seals are being clubbed, shot, or stabbed to death shortly after they are weaned. Not only is it totally legal in Canada, the Canadian government actually funds this cruel hunt. Speak up now for seals - tell the Canadian government to stop the bloody seal slaughter! 

During the hunts on the Atlantic coast, baby seals are beaten over the head numerous times before they succumb to the assault. Others are stabbed repeatedly causing them to bleed out to a slow and painful death. Aerial shooters are also employed, often failing to kill seals outright but leaving them injured. Seals are left to die on the ice or sink slowly to the ocean floor. Any baby seals who escape direct slaughter are left to starve to death when their parents are murdered. 

Seal boats can kill upwards of 400 seals a day; some individual seal hunters kill as many as 250 seals a day. The seal slaughter death toll is staggering. 

It can never be “humane” to maim and kill living, breathing, sentient beings, yet the Canadian government shockingly supports it all with taxpayer dollars. 

A poll released several years ago indicates the majority of Canadians oppose the seal hunts. Yet at a time when demand is sinking, Canada is still killing. Numerous countries have banned barbaric seal slaughter and commercial seal product trade on animal welfare or conservation grounds, including the United States, Mexico, the 28 countries of the European Union, the five countries of the Eurasian Economic Union, Taiwan, Switzerland, and India. 

Show your support now for seals being clubbed to death on the east coast, and for Canadians who oppose the seal hunts. Sign our alert now to stop Canada’s spring hunt and end seal hunting forever!
