Blood on the ice (Schuetze die Seehunde vor!)

Canada is about to begin the seal hunt season next month. How could you club this face? It's cruel and wrong. This isn't just my animal-loving heart being naive in light of overpopulation. That's not why there's a hunt. Read on.
Last year, The Humane Society of the United States documented the carnage firsthand and what they saw was shocking: Most of these baby seals were cut open while they were conscious and still struggling...

By the end of the hunt, it's predicted that more than 300,000 seals will be clubbed or shot to death by Canadian fishermen seeking to pick up a few extra dollars by selling their fur.
Last year, 98.5 of the seals killed were two months old or younger. Sign the petition against the seal hunt and contact the Canadian PM, Stephen Harper, here.
