Help Stop Canada's Commercial Seal Slaughter
The international market for seal pelts has all but disappeared, yet Canadian sealers will once again be clubbing animals to death for their skins this spring on the ice floes off Newfoundland.
Canada's commercial seal slaughter, in which tens of
thousands of young harp seals are shot and bludgeoned to death, is a shadow of
what it used to be, now that the US, the EU and Russia have all banned seal-product
imports. And with Justin Trudeau, a new progressive-minded Prime Minister, in
power, there's new hope for ending the cruel and wasteful seal slaughter.
LGBT rights, Syrian refugees and gender equality. Please join PETA in urging
him to extend his compassion even further and usher in a new era of kindness
and fiscal responsibility by ending federal subsidies of the commercial seal
Even if you have taken action on this issue in the
past, your voice is needed now more than ever! The world has rejected seal
products, and it's time for Canada to help sealers make the transition out of
this dying industry, provide them with appropriate compensation and start
funding sustainable industries to benefit rural communities.
