Stop the Seal Hunt

Canada's Seal Cull is Cruel

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.

First of all, I would like to say just how ridiculous this is. Are you kidding me? Teenage males and females, worshiping animated, talking ponies... My Little Pony is meant for children, and by children, I mean CHILDREN. Not teenagers who think like children. Grow up, people! I'm honestly hoping this fad ends soon. It goes to show just how childish this generation of humans really is. We are not worshipping them. And no, it's not just for children, If you can just watch the season 4 finally , it easily proves that its for all ages.

People like to think that judgement is synonymous with bigotry or discrimination when really it's more synonymous with conclusion or decision. When someone says "Don't judge me" what I hear is "Don't make any conclusions about me" and really that's just nonsensical. And to answer the question of if we'll ever have a world without outspoken and potentially obnoxious conclusions and criticisms? No, and I'm not sure we should. Some conclusions deserve to be said louder.
