Action Alert: UK Import Bans on Seal Products and Dog and Cat Fur Post-Brexit

Just a quick post to highlight a petition started by Respect for Animals to help ensure the suffering of cats, dogs, and seals does not increase because of the the UK leaving the EU.

Action Alert: Please Help Save the Seals

After watching the Human Society International video below, please send a message to the Canadian Prime Minister telling him you support a federal sealing industry buyout to save the seals.  Thank you.

Taiwan Bans Trade in Marine Mammal Products

Humane Society International reports that Taiwan has passed – with unanimous support – a ban on trade in marine mammal products, including seal skins (but exempting products of traditional indigenous hunts).

The ban draws nearer the end of the Canadian seal slaughter.

It is time for the Canadian government to face facts and end its support of the fading sealing industry. Katie Carrus/The HSUS

Action Alert: Please Tell Canada’s Prime Minister to Call off the Seal Slaughter

Please watch the video (which has no graphic scenes, quite the opposite) below then send a message to the Canadian Prime Minister telling him that seals should not be subjected to cruel and needless slaughter.  Thank you.

Each year, the Canadian government authorises sealers to club and shoot hundreds of thousands of baby seals for their fur: defenceless seal pups are routinely impaled on metal hooks, cut open while conscious, and left to suffer.  What a sad, sad reflection on our society.
