Go Faux Friday- Your Help Is Needed

By
Real Estate Agent with Alexander Chandler Realty

After reading Whitney Peddy's post about the seal slaughter in Canada that is still happening every year and learning that Red Lobster and Long John Silvers are some of the largest purchasers of Canadian seafood sold by Sealers, I felt compelled to re-blog this.  Please read it and get involved if you feel led.  I can't believe this is still happening.

Help End The Canadian Seal Slaughter

I hope I'm right in thinking that the animal lovers outweigh the easily offended here on ActiveRain. A grusome and cruel slaughter of nearly 500,000 seal pups is happening right now and will continue unless you and I put a stop to it. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Facts:

 

  • Each year, the Canadian government authorizes hundreds of thousands of baby seals to be clubbed and slaughtered for the use of their meat and pelts
  • Hunters repeatedly beat and either kill or hook them with hakapiks and drag them while still concious
  • There is no market for seal meat so this is a wasted effort and many seals end up as carcasses piled on top of eachother to rot
  • The U.S. banned the sale of seal fur in 1972
  • In 2009, the European Union voted to end the sale of seal products and the U.S. Senate passed U.S. Senate Resolution 84 calling to immediately end the annual seal slaughter
  • It's still happening, they started the hunt on March 28th
  • You can help
I won't post the videos here but I've provided some links below where you can learn more and watch the horrible videos if you want.

I had no idea those large chain restaurants were buying from these type of people. Thanks for the info. It's awful!

Shannon, I didn't know either.  I have sent an email to Red Lobster telling them that I am boycotting them until they stop purchasing from the Sealers or either the slaughter stops.  Next I will be emailing Long John Silvers.  I hate to have to boycott any business, but that seems to be the most effective way to make a point with large corporations sometimes.  Hit them at the cash register.
