Stop Canada's Cruel and Senseless Seal Hunt

With the first phase of Canada's annual seal hunt in the Gulf of St. Lawrence now over, more than 105,000 seals have been killed. Spectacular ice floes transformed into giant white nurseries just weeks ago are now stained red with the blood of seal carcasses as far as the eye can see. Last week they began killing another 200,000 seals in Newfoundland.

The Canadian government maintains that the hunt is humane. But our observers returning from the ice have witnessed numerous acts of cruelty and suffering, from clubbed baby seals left in agony while hunters move quickly onto the next seal, to seals shot and left to die a slow death under the ice. As IFAW's video footage shows, the seal hunt continues to inflict unnecessary suffering and cruelty to baby seals as young as 12 days old.

Thanks to your earlier efforts, we have made great strides in building the international outrage needed to end the slaughter.

But we need your help to intensify the pressure on Canada's government to end the hunt!

Please cut and paste this message into an email to your friends to maintain the momentum:


Dear Friends,

I have just read and signed the petition:
"Stop Canada's Cruel and Senseless Seal Hunt" from The International Fund for Animal Welfare:
//www.care2.com/go/z/23181

Many people are unaware that hundreds of thousands of baby seals are still being cruelly killed each year mainly for their fur -- frivolous luxury items that no one really needs! Please help by speaking out against the largestgovernment sanctioned slaughter of marine mammalsin the world by signing this petition.

Every voice raised against such a cruel and unnecessary hunt is critical to raising the public pressure needed toconvince the Canadian government to change.

Sign here: //www.care2.com/go/z/23181

Thank you!



Thank you for taking action today!
