When they get over populated, you do realize they die a slow agonizing death from starvation.
They are not an endangered spices by any means. The way they are killed is more human then any slaughter house that kills cattle, pigs, chickens or whatever.

Being a vegetarian, no it is not humane how farm animals are killed, but by goodness how the hell can you call this humane. Being bashed to death is not humane to me. Cruelty has no excuses, being overpopulated as you believe they are, doesnt give anyone the right to do this- nothing does. Barbaric, sadistic and cruel.

Thank you, Simone. Although I sign some some appeals like this when I can modify the submission to make it personal, I feel it far more effective if we all arm ourselves with the concrete political and ethical arguments and write personal letters asking for responses.

One of the problems I have with HSUS and similar Welfarist campaigns is they try to suggest the deed is inhumane and that it "might be done" under other circumstances or in other locales or to different species or at other times or in different ways. But the fact is there is no such thing as "humane" slaughter... of ANY sentient being! It's an oxymoron.

No animal exists for our use, at all, ever!

And that is why any personal action AND financial support is much better directed to various Vegan education initiatives since a Vegan lifestyle is the one true, complete, morally imperative response to ANY and ALL animal exploitation!

Please see my recent blog post and accompanying links for Dec. 31, 2008 & January 1, 2009 for more detailed reference. It is very important reading for ALL animal advocates. My blog is

Thank you.

Thank You Simone and Jeffrey.

Anyone that agrees with the slaughter of innocent children is a child abuser (yes baby seals are children).

Oh so if we are over populated by humans should we club them to death as well?
