End The Canadian Seal Hunt

This petition had 21,210 supporters

We are a group of Newfoundlanders who are working to the the Canadian Seal Hunt.

The Newfoundland seal hunt is a cruel slaughter.

Fully 95% of the harp seals killed over the past five years have been under three months of age. At the time of slaughter, many of these defenseless pups had not yet eaten their first solid food or taken their first swim, they literally had no escape from the "hunters."

Video evidence clearly shows sealers routinely dragging conscious pups across the ice with boathooks, shooting seals and leaving them to suffer in agony, and even skinning seals alive

An  independent team of veterinary experts studied Canada's commercial seal hunt. Their report concluded that in 42% of the cases they examined, the seal did not show enough evidence of cranial injury to even guarantee unconsciousness at the time of skinning.
