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'm pretty comfortable with my body image. My parents are kind of hippy and just raised me to be cool with how I am.

    Ah, short films. Such an under-appreciated art. It takes a true master to tell a story in such a small amount of time (or in a small amount of words; short stories are wonderful too). I don't make them myself, but I plan to in the future.
