Please guys for future, the OP is UK i believe, Its true Americans political systems and some people are hypocrites but this is not about America, so leave our neighbor to the south alone.


We should be addressing the uneducated UK OP who seems to be pulling stats and morals out his azz.

A government is seen by what it fails at, not the canadian people. The government doesn't listen to the canadian people. period.
Harp seals = overpopulated
As i said, i do not agree with it, Shooting them would be far easier to do. Why they do not is beyond me.

Either way, supply and demand. And if not that, they would have to be killed off a bit anyways to keep the ecosystem running. Note: They do not club baby seals, clubbing baby seals is illegal, they have to be of a certain maturity in order to be clubbed. Do i agree? # no. Does it have to happen? Yes.

So you're up in arms over one animal. What about the others that this animal would damage if it were to get out of hand? (which it is), Are you willing to sacrifice 50, or even 100 other species to save one?

and every person in Europe has bad teeth? We have all seen Monty Python and every one of them has the worst teeth, so I'm guessing everyone there is the same, no?

Ammo costs money man! a club is a one time purchase! That's why they don't like to use guns. Slaughter houses use a Spike gun on cows and pigs for just this purpose. It sends a large spike through the brain and then retracts for the next use. Just costs electricity. Bullets are expensive and costs natural resources.

We should probably send you up north so our seal clubbers can bat you over the head a few times and toss you into the ocean for your comments about Canada.

You should be ashamed of yourself for generalizing all Canadians to stir something up. You have no cited sources. You really haven't found a diplomatic solution or provided alternatives to the seal hunt. I would stand beside you on this topic but you are too biased against Canada as a whole.

So go read the first sentence of this post again and have a pleasant dream when you sleep next.

This is all a bit stereotypical. The main proportion of people are overshadowed but the acts of the few. Many other countries have similar practices, and often unsustainably. I'm and aussie, i hunt pigs with dogs, shoot roos by the bucket loads, and most often dont get a clean kill so need to get a lump of wood or rock, and put it out of its misery. And if i shoot a mother with joey, same. Need to get a lump of wood or rock, and put it out of its misery. So does this practice make this Australias national sport? And do all other aussie agree with what i do? No to both. Oh and i enjoy it too

Look at Ops past commenting history and you will find evidence of this.



MODS please consider closing this thread as in this context the OP is clearly provided false facts.

Thanks

Side note: The average Canadian photo I find amusing as the individuals in the image are from a movie “FUBAR” an independent comedy. I believe there is more truth behind your avatar of your child then behind the images you provided.

EDIT: Looks like people finally smelling a troll coming out from his moms basement. I offer my comments above to further reinforce what has been said.
edit on 1-6-2012 by MDDoxs because: (no reason given)


very funny for someone with 74 posts? Previously banned were you? Figured a way around the sensors.

My thread is very relevant. You have to resort to using my personal beliefs to try to close the thread. My facts are from countless Animal rights groups in and around North America.

Secondly, the picture i used was from google. the two guys.

If you go to GOOGLE CANADA and type "average looking Canadian" into it and then go to the pics section about 6 lines down this pic is there. I chose that pic as it is relevent to the thread. To dumb looking guys who really have no clue. They are harmless in looks but who know what they may be capable of.

So grow up boy and well done for finding a way around your ban!! 74 posts and asking for a thread to be closed by a MOD......you seem to be very ATS savvy for a new person!! No doubt you will claim to be a lurker for many years like they all do!!

Has long people kills chickens,cows,pigs,crocodiles,sharks,whales,tuna,dogs and cats etc
those seals will continu to be butched for their meat and fur

If i could become vegetarian .. i would
but has long they sale meat in the groceries
animals will continu to be killed
and nobody would want to waste any meat after a kill
to respect the animal not being killed for nothing

but if this is nature and we are at the top for the moment ..

we should try to find ways to be painless for the animal
and pay our respect to each one killed with a little prayer at the end

It would really help matters if you didn't display your own ignorance in your post.

The OP is not American, so casting aspersions against the US is just stupid.

The Gulf of Mexico is not part of the Pacific Ocean and only linked to it through the Atlantic Ocean by three routes, the Northwest Passage in the Arctic, Cape Horn at the tip of South America, and the Panama Canal. You can hardly blame the BP spill for any problems in the Pacific.

Seal clubbing is horrible and disgusting. I'm sure no one here would dispute that.

However, as an American who lived in Canada for 7 years I can easily say that Canadians are some of the friendliest, kindest, most caring people I've ever met. Interested in their country and far more concerned about what is going on in the world than Americans.

You're belligerant and ignorant to paint an entire country for one atrocity that most of them protest. But obviously you just hate Canadians considering your hateful posts about them in other threads. Like the one that got modded as an off-topic post in the Vitamin C thread yesterday.

Lets see, as you are wrong you choose to say a seal clubber could bash me over the head...nice try to rile e up but I am above a mere Canadian like you with comments like that.

Yes I generalized but look at he countless threads of people on here always generalizing about every damn topic. Gun crime in the US ban guns and Americans are stupid etc, people blasting all government because of a few in power another generization, people saying cops (i am one of them, not a cop, a person who has bashed cops) are bad because some beat people, I have seen a LEO on here trying in vein to defend his profession while taking a lciking from the countless people who like to gang up on people on HERE.

It happens. Canada needs to stand up to it publicly and do something about it!!! What they are doing is NOTHING!!! So yes the generalization is awarded.

Many of you say the NAZIS where bad...but only a handful of them were the evil one. Others where just trying to survive day to day. Thousands of them where not like Hitler and CO. But people generalize all of you do!!

So, I take nothing back. This is a Canadian Problem much like the coutnless gun killing in america is an american problem!! PERIOD.

european atrocities

Here is a nice little site for you about the Atrocities that happen in Europe! Lots of videos and pictures of all kinds of animal abuses happening right now, WHERE YOU LIVE! This should keep you busy for a while!

Now go deal with your own countries problems, before you decide to take up "OUR" fight! That is right, I said "OUR" fight. Meaning NOT yours!

You don't live here so get off our backs, until your own country is perfect!

Canada is becoming a place where profound idiots addicted to cash and drugs are being greenlighted by authorities to abuse the environment however they want.

If it's not seals being cowardly killed by the thousands, it'll be a bunch of idiots working in suburban construction projects, tar sands, logging, etc. If stops aren't being imposed on them, that'll keep going on forever. They'll only stop when they are surrounded by a DESERT and have to import all their food from foreign countries.

Then they'll move to some other planet put their meaningless flags (corporate logos) on it, then... more parasiting!

I find the OP more scary and disgusting than i do the seal clubbing and the seal clubbing turns my stomach. How can a person hold so much hate contempt and be so twisted is beyond me.

Killing living beings is a far worse kinda hate that just posting insults on a forum directed at those who do this.

Face it: humans are being abusive (especially those into industrial exploitation) to extents that it is endangering the entire planet. If we don't criticize our own behaviors, who will? God? Aliens?

ok,here we go.
less than 0.00001 % of the public has ever,or will participate in this 'hunt'.
there have been many protests,many letters and petitions sent to ottawa.
activists have even gone to the extreme by pouring dye on the live seal pups fur(non toxic of course)rendering the pelt useless!
i for one don't agree with this 'hunt' it is brutal.

and unnecessary,and fake fur nowadays is pretty convincing!
NOW! time to play devil's advocate! (please don't hate me,i'm not defending the hunt!)
the reason they 'club' the seals is so they dont wreck the pelt with bullet holes,or knfe or spear holes.
more $ for a perfect pelt! less $ for a holey one! makes sense from a 'buyers point of view'.
the next thing is these people who are doing the hunting,this is there only source of income for the whole year!
there is no work up there for them,and if you say 'just move then',well thats just silly.
that is there home,and generations of their families have been doing this forever,its all they know.
even if the could move south,whole communities wouls have to come 'en masse' due south,where there are no jobs anyway! (trust me,iknow theres no work!)
plus,a while back,the government encouraged the hunt citing that these seals are hurting the fishing industry by depleting fish supplies!
so,please don't think that a buncho drunken canucks pile into a pick up truck and go a clubbin!
it doesn't work that way. you need special permits,and only a handful are handed out.
of course there is poaching,but that happens all over the globe.

again,i do not agree with the hunt,but i wish people would look into the facts before they start pointing fingers!
then state your case! NOT EVERY CANADIAN HUNTS SEALS!
how many americans kill mice in traps every year? at what animal do YOU draw the line?

hmmm judging an entire country by the actions of a very , very small percentage of people which are not even all Canadian btw is terribly ignorant.

So is not seeing that I8miceb4's' post about an igloo and muck-lucks was about as blatant as Sarcasm can be when type...


Also Hockey is Canada's favorite sport by far, that's a no brainer.


But, 400,000 seals clubbed in one year and the population is still more than healthy??? If they outlawed seal hunting for 5 years..., they would have to start hiring people to control the seal population.

I'm sure you don't give a damn about how many rattle snakes heads are lopped off in America every year do you? Heck no, cause snakes aren't cute and cuddle...to you.

Personally I don't really agree with "most" seal clubbing, and I won't watch video or look at pics of it...But a real oldschool mountain Canadian that does actually wear muck-lucks and travel via dogsled would die if not for seal meat/and hides and fat (heck they use like every little bit of the animal). That's pure hunting right there, nature at work. I say good on them for thier way of living which is alot less harmful to the earth than the majority of people.
