The Canadian Seal Hunt

I’m going to talk about the violence with the Canadian kill the seals, every year when the spring begins; there is a big slaughter of mammals. Thousands of seals between 12 days and 12 moths die for blows due to the fur and their oil. For many years the slaughter has been hidden of the world. The commercial industry of seal’s fur has been increased during the years because many people like the fur coats. Harp seals are the target of this industry.

The seals hunt occurs on the ice of Canada's East Coast in two areas: the Gulf of St. Lawrence (west of Newfoundland and east of the Magdalene Islands) and the "Front" (northeast of Newfoundland).

The seals are killed by the fishermen from Canada's East Coast; they use wooden clubs, hakapiks (large ice-pick-like clubs) and guns to kill them.

It’s important to note that each killing method is demonstrably cruel. The fishermen kill the seals from moving boats causing them many grave wounds that are difficult to recover.

For that reason many organizations are fighting against this practice that is killing with the population of seals and if this slaughter continues like this, the seals will be extincted in the future.

Protect the seals, they are beautiful animals, we must take care of them, not kill them.
