Personally, all I can do is pray that one days humans will understand what excruciating pain actually feels like and will find another way....

Don't Buy While Seals Die: Boycott Canadian Seafood.
Help save the seals by urging your friends to sign the pledge to boycott Canadian seafood. Your simple act could help end the seal hunt forever.
Dear Friend,

When the 2006 Canadian seal hunt ended in June, hunters had killed more than 336,000 seals -- almost all of them babies as young as 12 days old.  While the tragedy of the 2006 seal hunt can never be undone, our campaign to ensure that this was the last hunt we’ll ever have to witness is quickly gaining momentum.

Today, you can help us end the largest commercial slaughter of marine mammals on the planet. You've already signed our pledge to boycott Canadian seafood (thank you!), but please take just a moment to ask at least five friends to sign today. Click here.

Because those who kill baby seals are also Canadian fishermen, the boycott of Canadian seafood is designed to hit the sealers in their pocketbooks. In June and July, the boycott received a major boost when the HSUS placed two full-page ads in The New York Times. The advertisements listed major restaurants and seafood distributors that have already signed on and called for other establishments to join the Canadian seafood boycott. Close to 500 restaurants have already signed the pledge.

The ProtectSeals campaign is gaining support every day, but there is still so much work to do. Sealing licenses will be made available to fishermen as early as this February -- we have only a few months to convince the Canadian fishing industry and government that continuing the seal hunt will cost far more than they want to pay.

The Humane Society of the United States is on the front lines every year in Canada, fighting to halt this atrocity. You can help by urging your friends to sign our simple pledge. Together, we can keep the pressure on the Canadian government and on the fishing industry that profits from the slaughter of the seals.

Canada is sensitive to world opinion, and its fishing industry is vulnerable to the choice of hundreds of thousands of people to refuse to buy Canadian seafood. Each and every person who signs the pledge will increase the pressure on Canada. Click here to ask your friends and family to sign the pledge. You can also stay in touch with our ongoing efforts to end the seal hunt at

It's truly painful to think about this awful abuse, but your involvement and action today are critical to ending it. Thank you for standing with us in our fight to abolish the cruel seal hunt forever.

I hope not J, because those are some really ugly clothes.
Okay sorry. I don't like it either, just trying to make light.

the POINT is J, that, cute or not, we need seals more than we need seal clothing, or seal meat, or seal oil...
if no one ever ate seal meat again or used seal oil, or wore seal clothing I'm sure that they would get along just fine but if we didn't have seals anymore I for one would not be fine with that. every species that we lose brings us closer to the brink of something that we really don't want or need. all life on this planet is interrelated in some way, however small.
killing farm animals for food is bad enough but I'm pretty sure that we don't have to worry about cows becoming extinct.

here we fucking go again

Tell Canada's Prime Minister to call off the hunt!

Hundreds of thousands of baby seals have already died, and Canada's annual commercial seal hunt has not yet even begun. The Gulf of St. Lawrence is usually covered by solid ice in late March, on which baby harp seals live until they are strong enough to swim on their own. But today there are only broken pans of ice surrounded by open water.

This destruction of their habitat -- believed to be related to global warming -- has had a devastating effect on seal populations: Where there should have been 260,000 pups, only a few have been spotted. The rest have been been swept out to sea to die.

Despite this grim reality, the Canadian government has not yet called off the hunt in this part of the North Atlantic. As you read this, sealing vessels are preparing to move north in search of surviving seal pups.

Please take action today! Urge the Canadian government to call off the seal hunt. Tell Prime Minister Stephen Harper that this seal population, already devastated by global warming, should not be subjected to cruel and needless slaughter to provide fur to the fashion industry. Tell him it's time to stop the seal hunt forever!

If humans weren't inhumane, it would be harder to recognize any goodness in them. Perhaps it's necessary that we see the lowest common denominator in people in order to appreciate those who were raised right.
