A thought for the day

If you fear pain, if you dislike pain,
don't do an evil deed in open or secret.
If you're doing or will do an evil deed,
you won't escape pain:
it will catch you even as you run away.

- Bhagawan Buddha

Canada's Seal Hunt: BLOT ON HUMANITY


Seals are routinely clubbed or shot and left to suffer on the ice, then dragged over the sides of boats with sharpened metal hooks. Few sealers are observed checking to see if a seal is still alive before they skin it. Most of them are skinned alive.

It is during spring time when seals only two weeks to three months old are also mercilessly slaughtered for their pelts.

This isnt killing for food or survival, its killing for fashion.Support IFAW to stop seal hunting.
