Stop Canada’s Cruel Seal Hunt

Stop Canada Seal Hunt

Seal Hunt Facts: The Canadian commercial seal hunt is an off-season activity for commercial fishermen from Canada’s east coast.

Sealers earn a very small percentage (5%) of their annual income from the seal hunt. The majority of the sealers’ income is derived from fishing other marine species such as lobster, shrimp and crab.

The Canadian commercial seal hunt is the largest slaughter of marine mammals in the world. The hunt takes place on ice floes off the east coast of Canada in two segments. In the first, smaller segment known as the “Gulf”, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the weapon of choice is the hakapik, which is a long club with a spike on one end, although guns are also used to a lesser degree. In the larger segment, known as the “Front”, northeast of Newfoundland, guns are more widely used, as the seals are more difficult to reach.

Canada has a second, lesser-known commercial seal hunt. Thousands of baby grey seals are slaughtered on small islands in Cape Breton and other areas of Nova Scotia each year. These pups are killed by Nova Scotian fishermen using crude wooden bats and boxcutters. Up until 2008 the slaughter of these pups occurred in secret and was relatively unnoticed relatively unnoticed and in secret.

    Seal pups perish on the coasts of Newfoundland before the hunt starts — 3/28/10
    The IFAW observation team witnesses dead harp seals on the coasts of Newfoundland. Harp seal pups are the tragic victims of the worst ice conditions on record in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Sadly, the Canadian government is moving forward with the commercial seal hunt, targeting the few seals that have survived without their necessary ice platforms

    Canada’s Shameful 2010 Seal Hunt Gets Underway

    Good news: Canada’s annual commercial seal slaughter ended last night—and more than 80 percent of the seals who had been marked for death were spared this year.

    Thanks to a huge PETA push and the hard work of caring people like you, worldwide demand for seal fur is plummeting.
