Its 2012. Most nations are discussing political issues concerning war, education, hunger, crime and other such matters that we as the public have come
to expect. Among all these nations is Canada. Canada seems to try and poke its nose into various businesses for example Libya of recent and its
message to the world of its tolerant and peaceful nature.
I say WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.
Canada seems to be sheep in wolfs clothes. It trys in vein to hide its horrendous and cruel true nature. Since at least the 60's Canada's CITIZENS
have been partaking in a "SPORT" they often deny but altogether LOVE.
I am referring to Canadas favorite pastime: SEAL CLUBBING & BABY SEAL CLUBBING.
This is what a baby seal looks like when its healthy and most of all NOT clubbed to death for fun!!
Now, to the average Canadian this is a sport and a necessity, so they will not find this too disturbing or even wrong. However, as we are now in the
year 2012, we as civilized societies with Human rights have also afforded animal certain rights too. There seems to be an Animal Rights act in Canada
but it must be overlooked as this is part of Canadian culture.
In 2012, THIS YEAR, 400,000 seals were clubbed to death in their annual sporting event. That is nearly half a million. Each year seems to get
progressively worse and yet nothing is done. There is a great charity / animal rights groups called Harpseals trying hard to get new laws past.
It is hard to believe that this goes on at all let alone in a place like Canada. Below is a series of picture that REALLY show you the brutality of
these Canadian Seal Killers.
Remember this is Graphic so please be advised.
First we have a couple of average Canadians looking harmless. Would you think these two or anyone like this could do the
I would like to add an extract from Harpseal.org which describes some of the harsh and barbaric things these Canadian sportsmen do!!
Once they find the seals, the true horrific nature of this bizarre event unfolds. In the first phase of the hunt (in the Gulf of St. Lawrence,
dominated by sealers from the Magdalen Islands of Quebec), sealers typically approach the seals and then club them with 'hakapiks' (long sticks with a
hooked blade at one end). After clubbing the seals, they are supposed to perform the 'blinking-eye' test, checking whether the seals blink, before
skinning them. If the seal is not dead, sealers may dispatch the seal with a variety of methods, including kicking in the face and/ or continuing to
beat the seal pups on the head with the hakapiks. The sealer may move on to other seals before skinning them or may skin them at that time. He will
drag the seal to the boat with the hook end of the hakapik. If the sealer did not bother to check whether the seal was dead, the seal may conscious
when the hooked blade is plunged into its mouth or head. An analysis by a panel of veterinarians showed that about 40% of the seals are actually
THIS NEEDS TO END. If there are any decent Canadians who do NOT agree with this practice which happens every year then please try and do something
about it. Inform your MP's this is wrong and not the TRUE CANADIAN WAY.
Most Canadians call this HUNTING or a SPORT. But it is not. It is for PROFIT and PROFIT alone.
When Russia stands up and says it is sick and wrong then somehow you have to believe that given it's Russia and their track record on certain
Last year Russia banned all seal products:
Russia, Canada's largest pelt market, banned seal product imports in August 2011. This fantastic news
means that the sealing industry will be even more decimated than it was as a result of the ban on seal product imports by the European Union in
I say shame on Canada and its national winter sport. It is not right. I do not know what caused modern Canada to still adopt this kind of cowardly
approach to making money.
