---------- Forwarded Message ---------- Paul & Heather McCartney were recently on CNN's Larry King Live telling of their visit to Canada & speaking out against this inhumane butchering of baby seals, solely for the fashion industry. Sign on to the petition to stop this slaughter. Miriam
|This Saturday, Canada's seal slaughter is slated to begin. We need your help now to save baby seals before it's too late!
In less than 3 days, the largest commercial slaughter of marine mammals is set to begin on the ice off Canada's East Coast.
By the end of the hunt, it's predicted that more than 300,000 seals will be clubbed or shot to death by Canadian fishermen seeking to pick up a few extra dollars by selling their fur.
Almost all of these seals will be babies - some as young as 12 days old. Take action!
Last year, The Humane Society of the United States documented the carnage firsthand and what they saw was shocking: Most of these baby seals were cut open while they were conscious and still struggling.
While most Canadians surveyed are against the hunt, the Canadian government and fishing industry refuse to end it.
But this year, there is new hope on the ice. Canada recently elected a new prime minister.
With enough public support, he could stop this terrible hunt.
Tell Canada's new Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, that you do not support the annual slaughter of seals for their fur. Join The Humane Society of the United States in fighting to end the seal hunt now and forever by signing the petition!
Take the time now to add your signature to save the seals, before it's too late!
Thanks for your action today.
