IFAW-Sheryl Fink: Baby Seals Shot,Clubbed off Newfoundland & Labrador‏

Photo: Stop the Seal Hunt

Seals pups are dying, and I need your help right now to stop the cruelty.

Seal Hunt 2011
This bloodied and suffering seal pup waved itsflipper over and over as the sealers continued piling hunted seals on theboat.

The seal hunt has just begun off the coast of Newfoundland.
Thanks to our caring supporters, IFAW’s Seal Team is there
documenting the cruelty, and they’re heartbroken over what they’re seeing.
Here’s a firsthand report from IFAW’s Seal Campaign Director, Sheryl Fink:
“Baby seals just a few weeks old are being shot at on small pans of ice, then clubbed or hooked and brought onboard the sealing ships to be skinned. Few sealers have been    checking to see if the seals are unconscious before hooking or slicing them open.
Seals are also being killed for no reason – their bodies left on the ice to rot – a clear violation of Canada’s Marine Mammal Regulations.
And in one horror-show case, we saw a young seal dumped in
the bottom of a small boat while the sealers kept hunting and adding other
bodies to the pile. The young seal – which was not checked to make sure it was
unconscious – reaches up and waves its front flipper repeatedly, clearly still
alive and in terrible agony.”

Defenseless sealpups and other animals need us more than ever!

With your continued support, our campaign to end the seal hunt is working.
Over 200,000 seals were saved last year. And this year only 27 sealing boats have joined this hunt
so far – compared to 58 from last year. And this is significantly down from years past.
So we are saving seal pups from slaughter – but we
need your help NOW to ensure we can keep the pressure up and end the seal hunt
for good.
Please donate now to help us protect innocent
animals like these defenseless seal pups.
The fate of this year’s
generation of seal pups is in our hands.
Gratefully,
