Sealers have killed 15,748 harp seal pups in just 3 days.

Sealers have killed 15,748 harp seal pups in just 3 days. These seal pups are just a few weeks old, and many are just learning how to swim. Sealers on a killing spree of this magnitude will almost certainly neglect to carefully check whether all the seals they have shot and/or beatened are really dead before dragging them onto their boats and/or skinning them.

The Canadian government continues to stand by this ‘industry’, claming that it is important to Atlantic Canada and the fishermen who participate in this massacre. In reality, it represents a tiny fraction of the provincial economies of Newfoundland and Quebec, where most of the sealers come from, and just a small percentage of each sealer’s income.

  1. What can we even say by now. The whole planet is a slaughterhouse. I’m thinking that our movement needs to start defining our own language to confront the carnage. We are told we cannot appropriate most of the similes and metaphors (such as slavery and the Holocaust) that express can the evil and the magnitude of the damage humans do to other beings.
