Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Federal Body: Stop giving hunters permission to have their annual Seal Slaughter

    1. Petition by

      Pragathi Dornadula

      Mississauga, Canada

Not only are they killing harmless baby seals, Veterinarians who have investigated the slaughter have found that hunters routinely fail to comply with Canada's animal welfare standards. These dead baby seals are used for both clothing and jewelry, why kill animals when they are alternative ways to make alike items.

      "Life is life's greatest gift. Guard the life of another creature as you would your own because it is your own. On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature who owns it than the largest."

      I don't hold animals superior or even equal to humans. The whole case for behaving decently to animals rests on the fact that we are the superior species. We are the species uniquely capable of imagination, rationality, and moral choice - and that is precisely why we are under an obligation to recognize and respect the rights of animals.

      Because you have to be one sick bastard to treat any creature (or their poor mothers) this way, and quite simply, I don't want anyone like this to even exist in the world. It is a repugnant illustration of the very opposites of what are considered the highest human virtues, and *nothing* will survive, and *all* beings (including humans) will suffer, if such evil isn't stopped NOW.
