On 9/19/2014, we mailed 61,283 signatures to Prime Minister Harper showing your support for the end to the seal hunts. While we await a response, please continue to sign and share this petition to advocate for innocent seals.
Goal: 75,000 Progress: 64,167
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

In recent years, hundreds of thousands of Canada's seals have been killed in annual "seal hunts." The hunters beat helpless baby seals to death with clubs. The fishermen who perform these hunts make an average of one-twentieth of their incomes from seal hunting — this is not their livelihood.

The hunt starts again every April. We cannot allow this savage cruelty to continue. Sign the petition below telling Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to put an end to Canada's seal massacre.

Dear Prime Minister Harper:

I am outraged at Canada's bloody commercial slaughter of innocent seals. Each year, these precious creatures fall prey to the hands of selfish hunters—fisherman who use rifles and clubs to beat and kill seals. Baby seals are often the first to be targeted.

It's bad enough that seals are facing new challenges with global warming depleting their environment and food resources. The seal population is suffering greatly as a result of climate change, yet Canadian seal hunters pay no mind and forge ahead with their inhumane and savage attacks.

What's worse is that seals are being killed mainly so that their pelts can be sold to fashion houses. The fishermen who perform these hunts make an average of one-twentieth of their incomes from seal hunting—this is not their livelihood, and they have no regard for the future of the seals or what their actions could mean for the future of our planet.

We have a responsibility to take care of our environment and the creatures that inhabit it. The Canadian seal slaughter demonstrates some of the most environmentally unsustainable and blatantly inhumane actions imaginable. We cannot allow this savage practice to continue. Please take the necessary steps to ensure this barbaric hunt comes to a halt, permanently.
