Canada’s largest seal [cull] MASSACE for more than 50 years is taking place despite protests by environmentalists and animal rights groups.
230,000 SEALS FOR SLAUGHTER
"Many are skinned alive right in front of us," says Ifaw activist Rebecca Aldworth.
The floes are suddenly awash in the red blood of the kill and the anguished cries of the seal mothers who hover helplessly nearby as their babies are viciously mutilated and skinned. Live seals are dragged while conscious across the ice with boat hooks; stockpiles of dead and dying seals lay beside ships.
The economic value of the seal hunt was $16.5 Million in 2004. [The federal government statistic].
[£8.1 Million or 11.7 Million Euro]
Harp seals do eat cod, but it has been man’s disregard for the environment that has wiped out the cod population off the Canadian coast – not the seals.
Why not cull some of the greedy fishermen?
I am watchingCanada in horror, I had always thought that that country was envionmentally,a step or three ahead of its southern neighbour…obviously not.
THEY are not indiginous to England.
[Yet another unwanted american import]
THEY need to be removed from our green and pleasant land.
Grey squirrels are a pest, they ARE vermin. They steal nuts from bird tables and kill garden and woodland fledglings. They strip the bark from trees which eventually destroys the trees.
This invader is also exterminating our native RED SQUIRREL .
Cormorants are culled, (See an earlier rant), seals are battered to death, even harmless hedgehogs are extinguished. One of our fellow bloggers wants to see the end of the humble Wasp.
Yet this panzer of the animal kingdom is allowed to go on its evil way. Old French wisdom says "If it moves, it’s edible" sadly, so I am informed, this does not apply to these grey vermin.
Not content with obliterating the Red Squirrel population, will they next set there sights on fluffy bunnies ?
Help SAVE our woodland birds and RED SQUIRRELs.
ERADICATE GREY SQUIRRELS
