Canada’s Seal Hunt center of controversy AGAIN
Humane? Now that’s a stretch. Ever since Canada enacted reforms to make seal hunting more ‘humane’, the annual seal hunt (this year’s quota is 350,000 pups) hasn’t gotten much attention. But according to activists the reality isn’t living up to expectations.
Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans, says video purportedly showing seals being skinned alive is actually showing unconscious or dead seals going through a “swimming reflex” — involuntary movements that mimic swimming.
Yeah right. As if we’re gonna believe that. For me the so-called ‘humane’-ness of killing these animals isn’t the question. Why on earth are they still allowing this butchery in the first place? A strange contradiction for a country that prides itself as a proponent of nonviolence and peace.
