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.

    Dear Readers,           This isn't really a question, but I still need help and ideas. My parent's birthday is coming up, and I want to make her something. Not just a card or picture, either. I want something that, when I move out, it will remind her of when I was the age I am now. I wanted to do something that had to do with how many things live at our house. We have two dogs, two rabbits, a cat, I have a sister, and just my mom. Not my dad (they split up). So if you have any ideas on what I could do, let me know.                                                                    Thank you,                                                                                                                                                                             Wjymmas

    i would like to point out that theres a difference between having an open mind and believing crazy stuff because of willful or unintentional scientific and factual ignorance. youtube videos made by conspiracy theorists are not a very good source of information. I honestly think that if you believe the earth is flat, there is something fundamentally wrong with your way of thinking and how you decide whats true and whats not.
