Stop the Seal Hunt

Animal rights groups are expected to protest at the start of this year's seal cull in Canada.

Up to 280,000 animals could be killed during the hunt, which takes place every year.

The Canadian government allows people to cull the harp seals as they say it's important to let them make money from the creatures' oil and fur.

Animal rights groups say it is cruel, and a ban on importing the products into Europe is looking more likely.

Although most animals are shot, some are killed by blows from large clubs.

Canadian authorities say the animals are killed quickly, and don't suffer unnecessarily.

America, the Netherlands and Belgium have already banned Canadian seal products.

    At first, it was a joke. I saw the first clown sighting on the news one day and I felt bad for those kids, but there wasn't gonna be many more clown sightings. One day after I had soccer practice, it said a bunch more clown sightings. This time, the clowns had weapons. I started freaking out. The whole clown thing exploded in everybody's faces. One day before school, I was changing into school clothes, when I realized my TV was on the news. I was about to change it, but the clown threats came on. It showed a map of which states clowns were in. It showed my state. I grabbed my tennis shoes and ran into the kitchen, my shirt still only half-way on. I think it's terrible that sick people like that harass children and teens for their own cruel amusement. That's just disgusting. Everyone, please stay safe!
