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.

    I think it should be lowered to eighteen. It's only fair because if you're able to join the military and risk your life at the age of eighteen then you should be able to drink a #### here and there. Unless they push the recruitment age up to twenty-one then I'll agree that is what the drinking age should be.

    I think the drinking age should be 70!  There are way too many hooligans running around these days!

    For those of you who didn't know the drinking is actually twenty-one . In my opinion the drinking age should not be lowered .  For one , if even young adults do rash things while drinking like doing what I call 'getting jiggy' . Let's not talk about it . Now it might not be their choice to do those things because people get very loopy and unpredictable after drinking .    In my opion drinking shouldn't even be allowed ! It's not like it would help banning it though . Some things are illegal for a reason yet some people feel the need to break the law .  I'm sorry about my ranting . XD What do you think  ? Should the drinking age be lowered ? Or no ?  :)
