How any person can stand over a helpless creature (or any creature) and bludgeon it to death is utterly beyond my comprehension. Tragic utterly heartless. These people must be very dark souls indeed.
We all have our opinions on the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
That aside, this cartoon by Charlie Hebdo captures the senseless massacre of seals for their fur.
Tens of thousands of harp seals are killed for their fur during the annual Canadian slaughter – a hunt totally sanctioned by the Canadian government. This hunt starts in November and ends in May. It reaches its peak in March, shortly after the harp seal pups are born.
Baby harp seals are born with a soft white coat.
Legally, baby harp seals in Canada cannot be hunted until they begin to shed their white coats of fur. However, this happens at a very young age so the pups are barely weaned before they are bludgeoned to death. This is no legal protection at all.
