Subject: Stop the mass slaughter of baby seals

Dear Ambassador Wilson,

I am appalled that Canadian fishermen continue to brutally slaughter more than 300,000 baby seals every year in Newfoundland and Labrador. I am writing to let you know that until the Canadian government puts a permanent stop to this atrocity, I will be boycotting Canada's goods, tourism and seafood industries.
Approximately 95% of the victims of this annual massacre are newborn pups less than four weeks old. A 2001 study found 79% of hunters did not verify that animals were dead before skinning them, and that 42% of the seals showed minimal or no skull fractures, indicating a high likelihood they were alive and perhaps even conscious while being skinned.
With all due respect, I would like you to explain to me in your response to this email how such cruelty can be justified.
I submit that the seal slaughter cannot be defended on any reasonable ethical grounds. Canada therefore risks alienating hundreds of millions of consumers worldwide and staining its citizens' hands with blood that will not easily wash off. With the seal massacre set to start in a matter of weeks, I urge you to please do all that you can to oppose this impending tragedy before it is too late.

Sincerely,


Join Sea Shepherd’s Campaign

Newly born Greenland Seals being Slaughtered
Public protests against the killing of newly born Greenland seals in the Archangel region have resulted in a ban on the hunting of baby seals this year. Officially, the reason for the ban was the dangerously thin ice. The real reason was the wave of protests from celebrities and animal protectionists. Now the Russian animal activists and stars are trying to have this year’s ban on the hunt of white-coat pups and “greys” (slightly older pups) translated into a legal ban.
