The photograph at the top of the article is one of the most horrifying that I can imagine. There are two deeply contrasting poses: one is the infant seal whose life has been so short that it has not learned yet to distrust the biped on whom he fixes his gentle gaze and the man who will casually end that life without any twinge of remorse. It is utterly vile and a betrayal of innocent trust.
We all wish it would end. Unfortunately, the Canadian fishing lobby is very powerful and, if they can blame the seals for plummeting fish stocks, Harper's government will not readily end the slaughter. At the same time, of course, there is the growing and very lucrative market in animal parts to supply China's (yes, them again) demand for its bullshit medicine. The killing will end when there is nothing left to kill.

What could have been going through that man's head as the club killed that seal? Perhaps, "I was only doing my job"? Well, that;s the same line the Nazi's took took defend their actions. Nobody forced a club into that man's hands. Only a person with a dark, twisted side to his nature could perform such an act.

This archaic and barbaric seal hunt which has been heinously cruel to seals and very unflattering in its portrait of Canada (making Canada look like they disdain) and have no respect for their wildlife needs to end now! It cannot be defended from any perspecive- on a humane level, economic level, or from a political standpoint.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Action taken ("signed") with a few minor changes and adding the following paragraph: "It is not seals but humans that are responsible for the fall in fish populations. Unlike humans, seals have no other food source. Seals are native animals that are living in their original habitat and they do not need to be killed. Native species are world heritage and they have an intrinsic value."

How many petitions, online actions and offline protests will it take to stop the killing of seals in Canada?!

I aoplogise to everybody for not being very active on Care2 lately. There is no single reason - I have just being doing bits of different kinds of activism and following the media. Since this relates to Canada and I am against the spread of humans into natural ecosystems, I have written to some relevant authorities in Canada (and the USA, Australia and New Zealand) against immigration after numerous articles regarding 30 thousand people who haver emigrated from Croatia in the past few years.

For the members here that are BASHING Canadian members...shame on you!!!

It is the Canadian Harper Conservative Government you want to bash...not us!!!

It is Steven Harper, the Fisheries Minister and the Premier of Newfoundland and a small handful of sealers that are continuing these barbaric murders!!!

Myself and 80% of the Canadian residents are against this hunt and continue (for YEARS now) to petition against this.....

So fellow CARE2 members...don't bash us Canadians...put your anger into petitions to have this stopped.......
