Seals are so adorable and gentle animals. So cruel and just odd that people can kill these sweeties so sadistically each year. Thanks

So sweet. How could anyone want to harm these beautiful creatures? I guess they're the same people who slash cow's throats and use heartsticks on cats and dogs. I think the world is divided into thirds...#1 Those who don't know how animals die. #2 Those who don't care how they die and can even do it themselves. #3 Those who would rather die than harm one. I choose to be #3.
