Dear Ambassador McKenna,
I am deeply opposed to Canada’s plan to slaughter nearly one million seals over three years - the highest quota in history. The vast majority of these animals (95%) are less than three months old and completely defenseless.
This deliberate plan to reduce the seal population through hidden subsidies and unethical killing methods is completely without scientific justification. Continuing to ignore the inexcusable cruelty and waste inherent in this annual “hunt” is simply wrong.
It is long past time for the Canadian government to act upon the wishes of the compassionate majority that is completely opposed to this hunt. Please act immediately to end this unnecessary abuse.
This is the letter I emailed to the Canadian Ambassador. You can let your voice be heard by going to the IFAW and signing the petition. The killing of baby seals is both cruel and senseless. The torture is allowed to continue because of the annual revenue this culling brings in. YOU can make a difference. Don't just sit by and hope that someone else does something, this is your chance to be heard.
