Last year, with world markets almost entirely closed to seal pelts and other seal products, the provincial government of Newfoundland, Canada took CAN$3.6 million of Newfoundland tax money and allocated it to a foreign company, Carino, which is based in Norway, in order to entice the company to buy pelts from sealers. As a result about 70,000 seal pups were bludgeoned and shot to death solely to stockpile their pelts (adding to large, existing stockpiles). This year, again the Newfoundland goverment is allocating the same amount of tax money to Carino thus ensuring tens of thousands more seal pups will be killed...for nothing. Canada's government in the past has vehemently argued that the seal 'hunt' was not significantly subsidized, but was a 'market-based' hunt. No longer is Canada concerned about being seen as a government that throws tax dollars into a bloody, useless massacre. The seal 'hunt' has become an even bigger black mark on Canada, as it desperately attempts to keep a dying industry alive.

About Me Animal lover, gardener, avid reader...just a nice person :)
I am owned by 7 cats 2 African Grey Parrots, 1 Sun Conure, and 2 ponds full of fish in my back yard. Any animal that is hurt, sick, dying or in need of a home somehow finds it way to our doorstep. Some of it is so heartbreaking, because so many people "throw away" or "leave behind" their animals, or just let leave them outside to fend for themselves. We have 5 cats that are now Angels at Rainbow Bridge, and will live on in our hearts forever. I will speak out or take any type of action that is within my power to stop any types of neglect, torture or abuse, to me that is the ultimate crime. If it were up to me, I'd put them away forever and throw the key away!!! Someone once told me that "You can't save the world!!" I keep trying and trying, and I know that someday, someway together with other caring people around the world....WE WILL!!!

    If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant. If we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. Happy Spring! Images
