Canadian Bloody Ice
Canada’s annual seal hunt is the largest slaughter of marine mammals on Earth.
Last year, the world looked on in horror as the Canadian government permitted the slaughter of more than 330,000 harp seals. During the hunt, baby seals are shot or repeatedly clubbed.
The Canadian government claims that hunters only kill adult seals, but 97 percent of the seals killed last year were less than 3 months of age.
Sealers bludgeon the animals with clubs and “hakapiks” (clubs with metal hooks on their ends) and drag the seals—who are still conscious—across the ice floes with boat hooks.
An estimated 42 percent of the animals are skinned alive. Hunters toss dead and dying seals into heaps and leave their carcasses to rot on the ice floes because there is no market for seal meat.
The Canadian government has given the go-ahead for hunters to bludgeon to death 335,000 baby harp seals this year.
To stop this atrocity, we must generate an international outcry against the Canadian government for sanctioning it.
