The annual seal cull began last week and I have to admit I was ignorant of the issue until recently. With all the media coverage this year, I decided to see what all the hullabaloo was about.

I am ashamed to call myself a Canadian. These poor creatures are beaten to death as young as 14 days old! Beaten over the head with a stick. Just because they are minding their own business, in their own home. And my country actually allows this?!

To compare this slaughter as equal to killing cows and chickens for food is ridiculous. For the most part, the seals are used for their furs and the clothing made from them is mainly sent to Asia! All for a whopping $45 per seal.
