Annual Seal Slaughter

Animal's Voice Online has just updated its feature editorial and presents an in-depth overview of this year's baby seal hunt (along with a history of sealing and complete with what you can do this year to stop the slaughter).

The Canadian commercial seal hunt is now by far the largest hunt for marine mammals in the world. This spring, harp and hooded seals will be clubbed, shot, and left to die in stockpiles because there are so few markets. Although experts believe the seal population can only withstand the "removal" of 257,000 harp seals, this year's kill quota has been set to 275,000 (with an additional quota of 10,000 hooded seals).
